A dog-friendly trip to Nuremberg, pet-friendly hotels in Nuremberg

Nuremberg is Bavaria's second largest city. This is a city that for the most part has managed to preserve the medieval characteristics to this day. The city is referred to as the most German city that embodies the spirit of the country. The Pegnitz crosses the center of Nuremberg from east to west.

The old town with narrow, winding streets is surrounded by a 5 km long castle wall with numerous gates and round, mighty towers. Among them are the New Gate, the Spittler Gate, the Laufer Gate, the Max Gate and the massive Königstor Tower.

Visit Nuremberg's city wall with your pet

The medieval stone fortifications around the old town were first erected in the 1000 years. But they took on their current encircling forms in the mid-16th century. In addition to the mighty walls with a length of approx. 4 km, Nuremberg's fortifications also include a castle and 67 defense towers. A wide moat runs along the walls, one of the longest in Europe. The part of the city wall that extends beyond the Old Town, with a parapet covered with a wooden frame roof, as well as the castle gardens are almost always accessible to visitors with dogs. In the long history of Nuremberg fortifications, the city was taken by the invaders only once. That was in 1945 during World War II.

Enjoy the beauty of Nuremberg Castle with your four-legged friend

Nuremberg Castle is Nuremberg's main attraction. It is an old defensive structure that transmits a unique color of the old German town. The castle is located on the city level in the historic part of Nuremberg and is conditionally divided into the imperial castle and the count's castle. Of particular interest to visitors are the active pilgrimage chapel of St. Walpurgis, the magnificent imperial palace, the deep well, the double chapel and the high round tower with the viewing platform from which the whole of Nuremberg can be touched.

Take your pet across the butcher bridge

The old stone bridges give Nuremberg a special charm. Perhaps the most famous is the Butcher Bridge in the historic district. The unusual name of the bridge lies in the fact that in the Middle Ages there were market stalls next to the bridge, where fresh meat could be bought. Originally, the bridge was made of wood, and it acquired its modern look only in the 17th century. Since then, the Metzgerbrücke has been an indispensable part of the urban landscape and a popular recreation spot for locals. The main entrance to the Fleischmarkt has transformed over time and is now an arch topped by the ox sculpture.
