Visit to Nuremberg, Germany

I can't exactly remember how many times I was in Nuremberg. I am quite sure more than ten times. Written as Nürnberg in German, this city is located in the Franconia region of Bavaria in Germany. It is a city full of historical sights to see and experience. Shopping, dining and other entertainment and leisure activities are always present in Nürnberg.

One of the sights not to miss when visiting Nuremberg is the Frauenkirche, known as the Church of Our Lady. You can see a snapshot of it below.

The Frauenkirche is an example of brick Gothic architecture, it was built on the initiative of Charles IV, Holy Roman Emperor between 1352 and 1362.

a snapshot I took in one of the souvenir shops in Nürnberg.

I super love these memes;

I've been to Germany only once, and Nuernberg wasn't on my itinerary, so I guess I'll have to go back!


When you see the shadows dance,
Be it Mexico or France,
You may join the shadow fun,
Dancing till the day is done!
