     CITY AND SIGHTSEEING
     Nuremberg in Middle Franconia has about 500,000 inhabitants, the second largest city
     in Bavaria and is becoming popular more and more as holiday destination. The unique
     location provides not only culturally but also naturally with a wide spectrum of recreational
     opportunities.

     For many people Nuremberg is associated with its traditional gingerbread (Lebkuchen) pro-
     ducts and handmade toys. In the 19th century Nuremberg became the „industrial heart“ of
     Bavaria with companies such as Siemens and MAN based here.

     Nuremberg is also famous for its Christkindlesmarkt (Christmas market) with handmade
     ornaments and delicacies.

     Many sights, such as Nuremberg Castle, Heilig-Geist-Spital, the Gothic Schöner Brunnen
     (Beautiful Fountain) and countless churches are the important attractions of the city.

     For superstitious people the Nuremberg Ring (now welded within an iron fence) should be
     very interesting: it’s said to bring good luck to those who touch it
