Imperial Castle Museum

The Imperial Castle is the symbol of Nuremberg. Since the Middle Ages its silhouette has represented the power and importance of the Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation and the outstanding role of the imperial city of Nuremberg.


Since 1999 it has housed the Imperial Castle Museum, a branch of the German National Museum, which is devoted to the history of the castle and its military aspects. Excavation findings, ornamental building elements, models and reconstruction drawings bring the history of this important complex to life.
