Our 24 Hours in Nuremberg

We start our perfect 24hrs in beautiful Nuremberg with delicious fair trade coffee from Kaffe Hörna. Along with our cup to-go we each have a cinnamon bun (baked on the original Göteburg recipe) – we are never able to resist these! They also serve really good homemade cereals, cakes and vegan focaccia. Later on we have our second and more hearty breakfast in the trendy neighbourhood Gostenhof (GoHo) at the Café Mainheim. Their funny interior is a pick ‘n’ mix of various furniture. Here we gorge on one of their huge breakfast platters with traditional Nuremberg bread from the bakery Erbel. In the unlikely case that you still haven’t had enough, we’d recommend a piece of their yummy homemade cakes.

After we’re done filling up our energy reserves, we’re ready for some shopping in Nuremberg downtown. Basti likes to check out Bube und König because they simply have the best men’s wear in the city: denims, workwear, shoes and a nice selection of accessories for the modern man with style. Sophisticated and unique fashion for him and her you’ll find at our two other favourite stores Crämer und Co. and Laden 12. The first one has a large selection of denims and downstairs you will find the Newseum which can easily keep up with well-known streetwear boutiques.

Well, we actually already burned off breakfast while power shopping, which means we are ready for some tasty snacks at Café Katz. Even though this place is in the middle of the city centre, it still remains a very laid-back and comfortable atmosphere. We especially like their vintage interior and their cakes. Or if we just feel like having a shot of caffeine we head straight to Di Simo which is a classic little Italian espresso bar, right next to the river Pegnitz.

We’re tired of carrying our shopping bags around, which is why we decide to put on the new clothes immediately before we continue the cultural part of the day. Dressed in our new threads , we kind of have to visit the Neues Museum (new museum). Like the name suggests, this is a wonderful museum for contemporary art with always changing exhibitions. The architecture of the building is very impressive, too.

To watch the sunset we head to the Kaiserburg. We get there by walking all the way through the charming cobblestone streets of the Old Town, passing the Albrecht Dürer Haus (a German Renaissance artist), and up to the castle. From there you have an amazing view of the whole city as well as of beautiful Franconian Switzerland (this area is always worth a visit, especially for the local cuisine).

Afterwards we need a refreshment, which leads us to the Café Bar Wanderer where you sit down on the cobblestones, which are still warm from the sun, and order a typical local beer. By sitting there, you will always hear about the latest Nuremberg gossip, interesting stories about the city itself and about everybody’s late night plans.

But before we go hit the clubs we need a decent dinner, wherefore we go to Kokoro. By the way, Pharrel Williams loves to come here when he is in town. This place has such a nice, tasteful and modern atmosphere and very good wine. Besides that, they simply have the best sushi ever! Okay okay, we might be exaggerating a little but we’d honestly say the best sushi in all of Germany.

Near Kokoro there are several bars, taverns and clubs – you should find out  for yourself what the night holds in store for you. For us is it will definitely be either Blok Bar (Adidas all over the place) or Hinz x Kunz where you usually start early with drinks and somehow are not able to leave, so you end up dancing until dawn. We also might end up at Rosi Schulz where mostly very fine Hip Hop and R’n’B tunes are played or at Die Rakete where people are still dancing when the sun comes up the next day.

You see, there a many opportunities to have a wild and crazy night out, full of dancing and having a great time with your friends in Nuremberg!
