roadsurfer tip 1: The “Handwerkerhof”
Delicious scents will lure you into the building. As soon as you enter the old yard you will be magically drawn to the “Handwerkerhof”. Nuremberg delicacies such as sausages and gingerbread make the experience even better. Cute little streets with half-timbered houses take you back in time.
How will you find this place? If you are at the central station, head towards the old town in the city. The “Frauenturm” will catch your eye instantly and lead you the way. The historic courtyard of the tower offers you the opportunity to watch craftsman doing traditional handiwork and forget the world for a second. Gingerbread, sausages, leather: everything here is made by hand. Pottery, tins, wooden artworks and goldsmiths are additional types of handcraft you can experience there.
roadsurfer tip: the flea market and “love island”
Nuremberg flea market, on the small “Pegnitzinsel” (island), offers one of the greatest experiences a market can offer. Hard to believe that it was once home to pigs. The houses with loving facades have been restored and Venetian gondolas seduce lovers to get into a boat and ride on the “Pegnitz”.
Campervan hire in Nuremberg: Rummage through the pretty fashion, toy, jewelry and residential treasure shops and taste exceptionally good wine and coffee. A visit of the art gallery is worthwhile as well. If you need some rest from all the walking afterwards, make yourself comfortable on the lush green meadow of love island at the eastern part of the little place. By the way, here is another tip if you visit the “Henkersteg”: head right to “Unschlittplatz”.
There is something for everyone. Up in the air and under water!
Admittedly, Nuremberg is not exactly famous for its opportunities regarding sports. It captivates visitors with its tranquility and idyllic charm. But if you are looking hard enough, the pretty Franconian metropolis offers some adventurous activities for those who are enthusiastic enough.
Camper rental Nuremberg: Take a canoe on the river “Pegnitz”
How about a tour on the river? Park your camper van in Nuremberg and rent a boat in order to take a ride on the “Pegnitz”. You have various choices. Either choose a tour within the city, go to the neighboring town of “Fuerth”, or take a tour with one of the dragon boats. There are many guided routes so you cannot get lost and it gets better: you do not need a license to ride one of the boats.
roadsurfer tip: Take a day tour through the countryside around Nuremberg. Start in “Artelshofen” and continue to “Hersbruck” for all of the highlights. 10 kilometers from the center it is quite convenient for a day trip. The current here is always fast for a quick getaway. An adventure is guaranteed. Beware though: if the water level is too high, you must bring some prior boating experience in order to have a safe trip. The whole tour will take around four hours and is around 17 kilometers of a distance. Start paddling!
Done with the boat? Up in the air then with a balloon!
A great experience is a ride with the hot air balloon. Not only is it a once in a lifetime adventure but you will also get the best view over Nuremberg along with it. Enjoy the sun and the cool breeze up in the air and start dreaming. Sounds perfect, right? Start the ride at the former Nazi Party rally grounds.

The journey takes between 60 to 90 minutes and at the end you will receive a certificate that you can keep as a great memory.
Nature in Nuremberg – the green city!

roadsurfer tip: Quite difficult to find, but all the more worth it is the Mayor’s Garden. Start your hunt in the “Burggarten” on the lower bastion. If you walk through the garden you will reach an idyllic park. From the “Kaiserstallung” you keep waking and remain on the left side of the mighty pentagonal tower. Walk through a small gate to the upper bastion and the beautiful rose garden. In the lower garden of the castle you can marvel at the artfully arranged roundabouts of trees.

Under old trees with a magnificent view on the “Kaiserburg”, every beer and meal tastes better.
