Holiday Destination: Nuremberg

Nuremberg is a city in the German state of Bavaria, in the administrative region of Middle Franconia. Situated on the Pegnitz river and the Rhine Main Danube Canal, it is located about 170 km north of Munich and is Franconia's largest city. The Nazis saw Nurnberg as a classic example of a city rich in Germanic and imperial history indeed, Hitler agreed with the mayor who once called it the 'most German of German cities.' Wishing to capitalize on this, the Nazi hierarchy turned Nurnberg into the city for Nazi Party rallies, and every September from 1933 to 1938, the NSDAP held its annual rallies in Nurnberg huge week long gatherings that brought hundreds of thousands of people to the city to view the nationalistic and militaristic extravaganza. To better accommodate these massive rallies, Hitler turned to his favorite architect Albert Speer to design and build a suitable site, which became the Nazi Party Rally Grounds, southeast of the city center. This site eventually featured some of Speer's largest and most monumental works, with plans for an immense Olympic style stadium with seating for 405,000 that would have dwarfed all else this building never progressed much beyond the ground breaking stage. Wartime necessities brought a halt to the Party Grounds, which were never finished, but most of what was built is still there, in a somewhat ruined condition.

With current holdings of about 1.2 million objects, the Germanisches Nationalmuseum is Germany's largest museum of cultural history. Formerly the Germanisches Museum, it was founded by a group of individuals led by the Franconian baron, Hans von und zu Aufsess, whose goal was to assemble a well ordered compendium of all available source material for German history, literature and art. The buildings incorporate the remaining structures of the former Nuremberg Charterhouse, dissolved in 1525 and used for a variety of secular purposes until in 1857 what was left of the premises, by then badly dilapidated, was given to the Museum.

The Frauenkirche is a church in the Bavarian city of Munich that serves as the cathedral of the Archdiocese of Munich and Freising and seat of its Archbishop. It is a landmark and is considered a symbol of the Bavarian capital city. The church towers are widely visible because of local height limits. According to the narrow outcome of a local pleviscite, city administration prohibits buildings with a height exceeding 99 m in the city center. Since November 2004, this prohibition has been provisionally extended outward and as a result, no buildings may be built in the city over the aforementioned height. The south tower is open to those wishing to climb the stairs and offers a unique view of Munich and the nearby Alps.

It comprises three sections the imperial castle Kaiserburg, some buildings of the Burgraves of Nuremberg, and the municipal buildings of the Imperial City at the eastern site Reichsstädtische Bauten. Archeological investigations during recent days indicate that the place was already settled around the year 1000, although this has not been backed up by any documentary proof. Nuremberg was first recorded in 1050, when Henry III visited the town, but there is no specific mention of the castle. The castle does not appear in any documents until 1105.

Albrecht Durer House

Albrecht Dürer's House is a Nuremberg Fachwerkhaus that was the home of German Renaissance artist Albrecht Dürer from 1509 to his death in 1528.

A planetarium is a theatre built primarily for presenting educational and entertaining shows about astronomy and the night sky, or for training in celestial navigation. A dominant feature of most planetariums is the large dome shaped projection screen onto which scenes of stars, planets and other celestial objects can be made to appear and move realistically to simulate the complex motions of the heavens. The celestial scenes can be created using a wide variety of technologies, for example precision engineered star balls that combine optical and electro mechanical technology, slide projector, video and fulldome projector systems, and lasers. Whatever technologies are used, the objective is normally to link them together to provide an accurate relative motion of the sky. Typical systems can be set to display the sky at any point in time, past or present, and often to show the night sky as it would appear from any point of latitude on Earth.
