Picturesque view of Nuremberg, including Kaiserburg Castle from the windows of Albrecht Durer’s House. Dürer is considered one of Germany’s greatest painters. He was born in Nuremberg in 1471 and died there in 1528. The square below is fantastic for a beer or coffee when the weather is good! There’s a really cute gift shop across the street too, the Museumsladen, with original tiles that are centuries old. .
