The best holiday i ever had was in Nuremberg, Germany. My favourite place to go was the Frauenkirche. Its beautiful steeples and stained glass are just exquisite. It was built in 1816 during the reign of Karl lV.
The first time you walk in its just breathtaking, the music, because they have their own choir, the lighting through the stained glass and the amazing architecture are all completely astounding!
If you are thinking of going to Nuremberg, some other places to visit are: the German National Museum, a museum of toys and transport and the Hauptmarkt, a beautiful town square with a market and many cafes.
All in all Nuremberg is a wonderful, picturesque place to visit well worth your time and money. Everyone who likes to travel must go there!
