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.

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