The pict on the right is of the "alt stat" with st Lawrence Church in the distance.
We learned that Nürnberg is in Northern Bavaria.
Originally Nürnberg was spelled a little different but the meaning was "Rock Mountain" and a large castle with no less than 120 towers was build on this mountain by Keizer Ludwich a Franconian. There are still 60 of the 120 towers standing and being preserved.
Just because of the sheer size of the castle it was difficult to get a good picture from the train in which we toured the city and we did not go in the castle. you can only do so much in one day!
The pict. on the right is of the Germanic artifacts museum with over 1 million pieces on exhibit. One would need a week just to see some of it!!!!
