Information about Nuremberg
As I am born in Nuremberg (Nürnberg) and live here I want to give you some information about the location and clarify some information given in the article.
First of all you should know, that visiting the Oktoberfest in Munich is not just a matter of jumping a train and be there in an hour or so. If you plan a visit you should have a full day at your disposal. So don't think you can leave Nuremberg at 3 pm and return late at night. Munich is about 200 km distance from Nuremberg and a 1 hour trainride is very optimistic. Even a fast train could take nearly 1 1/2 hours (and at that time they may well be pretty packed and overcrowded). Once you are in Munich station, you still have a way to the festival. The time to plan from Suse in Nuremberg (or your hotel) to reach Oktoberfest can be 3 hours or so. Oktoberfest can barely cope with the number of people trying to visit. People who can't stand to be sandwiched in a massive crowd, should not go there.
If you are into history, you will find plenty of opportunities to spend your spare time in Nürnberg. From Suse Headquartes it literally just a 5 minute walk up the beautiful medieval castle, which will serve you a view over the city. And of course you may see some sites from the nazi-time, as Nuremberg was the chosen venue of Hitler's nazi party rallyes.
Uh, by the way. Technically spoken, Nuremberg may be part of Bavaria. The predominat selfunderstanding of people living here still is, that Nuremberg is part of FRANCONIA in the first place and people here might well appreciate, if you can come up with that knowledge. Franconia, by the way, has the highest density of breweries worldwide.
Nuremberg is a half-a-million city and has as well some night life to offer.
