A Hotel Near 1,000 Years of Nuremberg Landmarks

Experiences

Stay at Le Méridien Grand Hotel Nuremberg and take advantage of our hotel's central location near the Nuremberg Convention Center and train station. With over 500,000 inhabitants, Nuremberg is not only the second largest city in Bavaria, but also the second most important commercial centre of the free state. As far back at the Middle Ages, the Franconian metropolis was a powerful main trading point. Located near our hotel, the impressive Nuremberg Castle, landmark of the city, pays homage to this time period. In around 1800, Nuremberg was close to falling under Prussian rule, but it did not go so far. Instead, Nuremberg became part of the Kingdom of Bavaria in 1806. Artists such as the painter Albrecht Dürer, the poet Hans Sachs and the sculptor Veit Stoss made the city famous. The pocket watch and the terrestrial globe were invented here. The composer Johann Pachelbel, who with 'Canon' wrote one of the most popular pieces of music of the Baroque period, is also a city native. Nuremberg has become affluent through the distribution and production of toys and works of art.
