The Nuremberg Castle | Nuremberg, Germany

The Nuremberg Castle: Imperial Castle (Kaiserburg), Burgraves' castle (Burggrafenburg) and “Imperial City”; Germany

​The Nuremberg Castle (in German Nürnberger Burg) is one of the most prominent medieval fortifications in Germany and one could say even in Europe. Some sources say that the castle is representing the power and importance of the Holy Roman Empire and the German Nation.

The first written mention about the Nuremberg Castle comes from the year 1050, but the excavation revealed that the hill of Nuremberg was inhabited well before. When you visit this fortification, you will notice it has three main parts: Imperial Castle (Kaiserburg), Burgraves’ castle (Burggrafenburg) and a complex of the buildings which is called “Imperial City”. On the photo, Nico captured the courtyard of the castle, with the Heathen’s Tower, Imperial Chapel and the “Deep Wheel”.

What we nowadays think about the medieval kings is that they had one castle where they spent their whole life, ruling from there. However, in Germany, as in some other countries, kings hadn’t a particular place as a sit and the early countries a capital city. Instead they were traveling through their country visiting castles on the way. The Nuremberg Castle was one of such important imperial possessions where for few centuries German kings and Holy Roman Emperors stayed on their voyage – sometimes even a few times in their lifetime.

My goal is always to create the best possible and most exciting photos to do justice to the places where they’ve been taken.
