I just got back from a few days in the famous Bavarian city of Nuremberg, where I attended a field trip with a medieval studies group. Although spring still hasn’t arrived in Germany yet and I was freezing most of time, I had a great time exploring the exciting — and sometimes difficult — history of Nuremberg. But before I go into further detail (soon!) and tell you about sleeping in the former hayloft of a medieval castle, and what it feels like to touch the fragile pages of a 15th century manuscript, I’ll give you a little sneak peek of the photos I took via Instagram.
The view over Nuremberg from the castle
The Gothic towers of St. Lawrence’s Church
The Church of Our Lady and the Central Market at night
The former medieval hospital built over the River Pegnitz
The castle of Nuremberg — and my youth hostel!
Always my favorite thing about visiting Bavaria: A Breze
The wonderful German National Museum — partly located inside a former cloister!
