Nuremberg (2012)

April 2012

Our bus tour of the city passed many historical sites. However,
it was difficult to take photos through the window.
This accounts for the "ghost-like" image of our fellow
passenger superimposed on the building.
After leaving the bus we had time to walk the cobblestone streets.

The Cathedral where we attended Palm Sunday Mass dominates the main square
The Easter Market was in operation and well attended.

The 62 ft high Brunner fountain is a popular destination in Market Square.

Visitors are visible turning the fountain's brass ring for good luck.


In the 20th century Nuremberg had a darker side including the stadium where Hitler held his massive rallies.

After the war, Nuremberg was the site of the Nazi War Crime Trials.

In room 600 where the trials were held,
our guide described the proceedings in detail
