It was a great location and had all the facilities we needed. It overlooked a park and although we visited in winter it would be great in the warmer months too. We visited the week before Christmas to see the Christmas markets and Nuremberg has such a lovely atmosphere. The markets were amazing and big enough to walk around with our children. We particularly loved the children's market and the rides. Nuremberg itself is a beautiful city and we will visit again. It had great shops and restaurants. The owner of the property was also lovely. She picked us up from the station and even took us to a nearby restaurant as we were all hungry and had arrived late. The underground in Nuremberg is easy to navigate and we visited the Nuremberg trials which was another great experience- very historical. The area around it was also really pretty and would be amazing in the warmer months. We honestly can't say enough how much we loved our stay and the apartment. We have nothing negative to stay. There was 5 of us staying here 2 adults 2 children and one teenager. We would recommend this apartment and the city.
