What people are saying about Nuremberg

It was a very nice day and our son (4 years) had a lot of fun. We will surely come back again. For children from 3-6 years it is sure to be a great surprise. It was well attended, with very nice weather, but not overly crowded. Connection to public transport could be a little better, especially on weekends (shorter intervals), otherwise highly recommended

great experience for grandchildren, grandma + grandpa - a good number of visitors and still space - friendly, helpful helpers from the park - a shame for the closed stands in the park restaurant - great parking space for motorhomes - we'd love to come back

We were there during the week. It was very relaxed. You can stay for a long time in the individual areas, which are all beautifully designed.

Quickly inside without queuing- everywhere very friendly staff- delicious coffee

Good starting location. Not much info around at the hotels.
