Discover our top five activities and places to visit and explore with your family in Nuremberg this summer and enjoy a great time in beutiful Nuremberg with your kids.
1. Explore Nuremberg with the Nürnberg Card
If you are in Nuremberg for a weekend and are planning to explore as much as possible in two days, you should check out the Nürnberg Card. For two days, this City Card offers free travel on public transport and free admission to all museums and sights. The Nürnberg Card costs 28 euros for adults, only six euros for children aged 6-11 and is free for children under the age of six. The City Card also entitles you to free admission to the famous Nuremberg Zoo. Here you find all information about the Nürnberg Card.
2. Visit the Kaiserburg Nuremberg
The Kaiserburg is probably the best known landmark of the city and one of the most important castles in Germany. Between 1050 and 1571 all Roman-German emperors resided at the Kaiserburg, albeit only temporarily. With the palace, the fountain, the towers and the castle garden, there is plenty for visitors all ages to discover! In the summer almost daily guided tours and activities for families are offered. The holiday program includes, for example "Attention! Scouts and spies at the castle", a guided tour that explores the underground corridors of the imperial castle and forges a plan for conquering it. The tour is suitable for children aged six to ten (adult companions required) and costs six euros per person. More information and online tickets are available on the website (only German).
3. Swimming pools and open-air baths in Nuremberg
Whether it's a bad weather program or cooling off on hot summer days: a visit of a swimming pool is always very popular with children! From the large leisure and adventure pool with a slide paradise such as the "Kristall Palm Beach" (30 minutes with the U1 from Nuremberg Central Station) to the natural swimming pools such as the Langseebad or the outdoor pool Naturgarten (with the U8 from Nuremberg Central Station), Nuremberg offers a wide variety for swim fans. More information is available at the tourism website.
4. Romp and relax at Stadtpark Nuremberg
Nuremberg's green lungs offer ample space for playing, relaxing and picnicking. On the large playground the children can "climb" a small version of the “Kaiserburg” and really let off steam. Right next to the playground there are natural playing areas, a streetball field, a football field and a movement course. The "PARKS", which with its modernization in 2001 became the meeting place for Nuremberg residents, is ideal for a small snack or a sundowner. In addition to food and drinks, the PARKS also offer regular activities and events such as morning yoga or a Sunday brunch with childcare! Here you find more information (German only).
5. Dinosaur Museum Altmühltal
If you are visiting Nuremberg by car you should definitely plan an excursion to the Dino Park in the south of Nuremberg (approx. minutes). In the park, the 1.5-kilometer-long forest trail leads visitors through 400 million years of geological history. 70 lifelike replicas of dinosaurs and other animals from primeval times will lead kids flubbergasted. There are many interactive stations where the children can compare their own powers and abilities with those of the dinosaurs or they can uncover fossils as paleontologists. For the physical well-being there is a bistro and a forest beer garden with children's menus. The entire park is accessible for people with disabilities, except for access to one exhibit.
