As the largest city in Franconia and the second largest city in Bavaria, there is a lot to discover in Nuremberg. We take you to the cultural centre of northern Bavaria and provide you with exclusive tips from our Nuremberg pilots for your private jet trip to Nuremberg Airport. Where do our pilots like to go out to eat ? Which “secret” places do they visit in their free time? Which hotels do we like to recommend to our guests and which airports can be found in Nuremberg and its surrounding area?
Approximately 520,000 people live in the Franconian metropolis and the founding date is stated around 1050. Unfortunately, more than 90% of the city was destroyed during the Second World War. Throughout reconstruction, the city attached great importance to retaining old architectural styles. Despite the bombings, the medieval style with the half-timbered houses has been preserved.
What should you definitely visit in Nuremberg?
Nuremberg’s imperial castle first appears in written sources in 1105. It was one of the most important castles in Europe in the Middle Ages. Until 1571, all Roman-German emperors did reside at times in the Imperial Castle. Visit the permanent exhibition in the castle museum and learn more about the history of Nuremberg. Afterwards, we recommend a walk along the city walls of Nuremberg to discover the treasures of this medieval city.
While taking the city tour you also have the unique opportunity to visit the place where Albrecht Dürer lived and worked. From 1509, Germany’s most famous artist lived in this town house. In fact it is one of the few town residences that were not destroyed during the war.
When you hear the word Nuremberg, christmas market, gingerbread and Nuremberg bratwursts immediately come to mind. These markets usually take place during Christmastime and are street markets offering food, drinks, and trinkets associated with the Christmas season. If this is more your thing, we recommend a trip in the winter months in order to stroll through the Christkindelsmarkt with its romantic atmosphere, the smell of roasted almonds and mulled wine.
The Nuremberg Christmas Market is one of the largest in Germany and not without reason one of the most famous in the world.
The insider tips of our Nuremberg experts
We asked our Nuremberg pilots and staff for insider tips for your Nuremberg holiday and discovered the following exciting spots.
The Mayor’s Garden
Tucked away by the city wall, the Mayor’s Garden offers a place of idyll. Our pilot Christian explains how to find his Nuremberg insider tip: “You start your walk in the Burggarten on the upper and lower bastions to the west and north of Nuremberg Castle. From there you walk to the Marstall (youth hostel) and pass through the small gate behind the pentagonal tower. Now you are on the path that leads through the lower castle garden. Walk a bit along the wall and arrive in the mayor’s garden.
In the past, this part of the garden was leased to the mayor, hence the name. Take a short break in the stately gardens before moving on to our next insider tip.
Discover Nuremberg from above in the Cloud One Bar
Our pilot Eike also has a special highlight for you: the Cloud One Bar on the 14th floor of the Motel One, located directly at the main station. Enjoy a glass of gin tonic or champagne at sunset with a view over the historic city of Franconia.

Restaurants and bars when you fly to Nuremberg Airport by private jet
The “goldenes Posthorn”
The golden post horn is the oldest wine tavern in Germany and was first mentioned in a document in 1498. Famous personalities, such as Albrecht Dürer, from all over the world met in this very place. They exchanged ideas and lived out their artistic lives. Richard Wagner, for example, wrote a part of his opera “Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg” in the Posthorn. Try original Nuremberg grilled sausages or a Schäufele fresh from the oven.
