4. Insider Tips Nuremberg – the tastiest restaurants
Of course Nuremberg has more delicacies to offer than its famous barbecue sausage. If you eat meat, definitely give Schäufele a try. As well as Currywurst or Pizza. And if that’s not really your thing: The city is also home to a number of fine dining establishments.
Lukas, 21, Musician & Student
“Il Rossini serves the best Pizza. For a small price you can get a giant pizza or delicious pasta. And the service is great.”
Flo, 34, Sales Representative
“If you’re craving traditional Franconian food try a Schäufele at the Schäufelewirtschaft. If you don’t eat meat try their soups. Delish.”
Max, 20, Apprentice
“Wurstdurst is a secret spot in Nuremberg. I don’t think many people know about it yet. Make sure you try their Samurai Mayonnaise.“
Ellie, 22, Student
“I really like the ambience at Estragon. In addition to Mediterranean food they also serve Franconian specialties. I think it’s amazing that this restaurant employs people with disabilities.”
My own tip: “I love good food. I prefer to order one dish too many than not enough. If you want to go out and dine with your friends then visit ess brand. And don’t worry: Even though the quality is above average, the food is still affordable.”
5. Insider Tips Nuremberg – the coolest shops
Shopping is great fun in Nuremberg. If you don’t like big department stores the city offers some really good alternatives.

“I always find something when I go to Crämer & Co. They have a great selection of fashion labels and even have their own in-shop tailor.”
Madeleine, 21, Apprentice
“Finally Nuremberg also has a “Kauf Dich Glücklich”. I really like their collection of clothes, books and records. And their interior design, too.”
Lennart, 22, Student

Basti, 23, Student
“I like Herr Menig. They have the most extraordinary and beautiful glasses in the world. And if you ask nicely you’ll get a cup of espresso or a glass of beer on the house.”
My own tip: “Laden 12 is my top address for fashion. I like its interior design and the selection of labels. The service is great and shopping is great fun here.”
Getting there: Take the train and arrive hassle-free at the main station. Or take one of the several flights that arrive here every day from allover Germany and Europe.
Accommodation: Nuremberg offers a variety of different hotels. I recommend the Motel1 for a relaxed stay. It’s located close to the station and is ideal for day trips into the city.
Prices are more than fair. The rooms are tastefully designed and have everything you need. I liked the TV instead of an aquarium in my room. I miss my childhood aquarium!
Last but not least: Their breakfast buffet is great. Thanks for the nice stay!
Tip: Definitely visit Nuremberg’s flea market. The whole city turns into a market and you can get a bargain on every corner.
