Nuremberg, Germany

When you take the train to just the right train station... you end up in the old part of the city.. Full of history, old churches, shops, places to eat, and even a river flowing through this part of the city. There is an intact castle complete with stone walls... It is fun just to walk around.

Some street musicians.. this group is from Bolvia

One of the old churches was having a 'new roof' drive. For 5 euro (about $7.00) you could buy the old tile, sign your name on the new tile that would go up on the roof and they gave you the old tile to keep. If you look closely on the tile you can see: Nuremberg stamped on it. The old part of town buildings and the churches found in this area, for the most part were heavily bombed during the war.

This church has one of the clocks that has the figures move in and out on the half and even hours. Like a big cookoo clock.

Thanks for the little trip back to my old stomping grounds! I lived in Germany for 10 years (6 in Bad Windsheim) and Nuermberg was one of my favorite cities! I took the train everywhere!
