Modern Industry and Medieval Charm in Nuremberg

Nuremberg, Germany, was the crossroads of commerce in medieval times. A thousand years ago, its Imperial castle was the place to meet. Always a city of invention and art, today it is looked upon as a center of innovation and creative ferment by hundreds of companies in dozens of industries.

These stories are not as well known in the U.S. as those that have come to overshadow them: Nuremberg as the site of Hitler rallies and as home to the famous/infamous Nuremberg Trials, which created the model for today’s international criminal court in The Hague.

With massive amounts of history and charm, a walkable city center, a thriving and diverse modern economy, and a convention center complex designed for beauty as well as practicality, Nuremberg works for a wide variety of meeting and congresses.
