Delayed post: Nuremberg

Friends

A lonng delay to post it, but here goes some photos I snapped in Nuremberg. Since I got a travel to Finland that was delayed, I was happy to have a weekend to enjoy the city.

And boy, it was really cool! Sandro reported some of the places we visited (hey, man! What about the karaoke video?). But the best of the whole cultural experience came in the Saturday: visiting the Museum of Industrial Culture (by suggestion of Will Stephenson).

Have a look on some photos:

a) When your grandpa says that people nowadays lack the guts, believe it!

b) Feeling like a kid in a candyshop (and yes, most of the motorcycles still work!). It seems that up until the 60’s, there used to be several local motorcycle companys in Nuremberg (some of the items in the collection are older than 100 years and some feature engines with more than 1000cc).

c) From my poor German, there was a sign saying something like “Kids, you can ask you mommy or daddy to snap a photo”.

d) Visiting the train exhibition gives you a good idea of how the old and the new can be present together in the city.

Some extra notes:

  • the stereotype of German people being unwilling to help tourists is completely false, as long you are at least capable of asking for help in the local language;
  • local food is delicious and way cheaper than Northern countries or say San Francisco/USA. You can eat very well by paying 10 euros a meal (included the dunkel beer!) in Nuremberg;
  • train system is cheap and effective (but not always on time);
  • The beer is awesome and the cars german!

    I’d seriously recommend the motor museum in Neckersulm. One exhibit that really made my eyes water was the ice-racing motor bike! Anyone that is willing to lie prone and race like that is unbelievable! It’s 30 years since I first went, and the extension had not been built. It was like a Tardis – a tiny tower from the outside and absolutely fantastic inside.
