Located 103 mi/166 km northwest of Munich, Nuremberg, Germany, is an interesting mix of the quaint and the cosmopolitan. Once dubbed "the most German of German cities" by a former mayor, it has a dark history as the former seat of the Nazi party. Today, it's a city that has worked hard to overcome its past, but also to remember it through museums and historic sites.

The Altstadt (Old City) is a medieval walled city with large pedestrian walkways graced by the pretty Pegnitz River.

Spend the afternoon strolling the narrow streets and alleys, shopping for antiques, toys, crafts and jewelry. Nuremberg has a polished, modern feel, but also a strong sense of the historical, with many baroque buildings. It's Bavaria's second-largest city, and despite being bustling and sophisticated, it retains a relaxed, village-like charm.
