Frankfurt is Germany's financial hub, home to the European Central Bank. This riverside city offers a variety of cultural and historical attractions scattered between its financial institutions and shops.

Your first stop should be Old Town, along the river Main. Once the center of the city, the Old Town district is now the site of the Römer, or city hall, along a row of picturesque timber houses. Stop in Kleinmarkthalle, a bustling indoor market, to grab a sausage for a snack before wandering through some of Old Town's museums: Saalgasse, Dommuseum, and Museum für Moderne Kunst (Museum MMK) will get you started. Two of Frankfurt's most prominent churches, St. Bartholomew Cathedral and St. Nicholas Church, are also in the area.

Food is always delightful in Frankfurt. Several Michelin-star restaurants will entice you, including Restaurant Lafleur, Restaurant Gustav, Restaurant Villa Merton, and Carmelo Greco. If you prefer more affordable dining and lively nightlife, head to the Bahnhofsviertel neighborhood near the city's train station.

The train station in Bahnhofsviertel serves national and international rail lines for Deutsche Bahn, DB Intercity, FlixTrain, vlexx, and Railjet. You can also reach Frankfurt easily on bus carriers like FlixBus and Sindbad. Plus, flying in and out of Frankfurt is a breeze, as the airport is one of the largest in Germany and the main hub for the Lufthansa airline.

Nuremberg is a fantastic destination year-round; however, it becomes particularly spectacular in the weeks before Christmas. Nuremberg's Christkindlemarkt is a world-famous market illuminated by thousands of lights displaying handmade ornaments, toys, and crafts. Enjoy lebkuchen and mulled wine while wandering through the stalls to get in the Christmas spirit, and see why Nuremberg is an essential stop along our train itinerary to visit Germany's best Christmas markets.

Nuremberg's castle, Kaiserburg, is another must-see while in the city. Standing since the Middle Ages, visitors can explore Nuremberg's history while also enjoying some of the best views of the city. No wonder it's one of Germany's most-Instagrammed castles.

Transport around Germany is highly efficient, making travel to Nuremberg simple. The city is served by its own international airport and a large train station that welcomes many Deutsche Bahn trains every day. FlixBus, Sindbad, BlaBlaCar Bus, and more bus services also run frequently to Nuremberg from various destinations across Europe.
