The newly-renovated Nuremberg YHA is in the perfect position as a sightseeing base for backpackers.
I was immediately struck by the clean lines and modern interior of the Hostel Koln reception area: It was more hotel than hostel, and we liked it a lot.
It costs €1.50 to climb more than 300 narrow stairs and get to the top of the St Peters church tower. The rewards are maybe best described by photos…
Right next to the Plaza Espana, we came across a small cafe/bar with outdoor seating, dark wooden tables, and freshly squeezed orange juice: Baco.
The Kunsthalle isn’t large: several rooms tunnel off from the entrance: it could house one-room exhibitions from several artists, but when we visited it was local artist Heike Baranowsky that had the run of the place.
A visit to the Nazi Documentation Centre is almost compulsory. The moving exhibit is housed in the Nazi Congress Hall on the Party Rally Grounds.
Be overwhelmed at the Germanisches Nationalmuseum (German national history museum). Rich collections, original masterworks by Dürer or Rembrandt and more.
The Nymphenburg Palace is one of the things to do in Munich. A summer court was held there throughout the days of Bavarian Monarchy since it was first built in the late 1600s. Now it’s a museum that’s open to the public.
The Maritime museum of Cesenatico sits alongside and partially on the oldest part of the Leonardo Da Vinci-drawn canal harbour that brought the town to life.
For location, service, taste, and price, Salzburg’s Triangel restaurant is hard to beat.
