This much is true: For any visitor to Nuremberg, a visit to the Imperial Castle is a must, as it is the emblem of this Franconian city. However, your next outing might entail a visit to the Tucherschloss Museum. Many of the items on display, such as furniture, paintings, dinner service sets and artisan works, were once owned by the patrician family Tucher. And at the end of your tour, you can settle down in the Renaissance garden and have a picnic. Useful tip: On Sundays, there are guided tours round the castle with an actress dressed as the erstwhile lady of the house "Katharina Tucher", who will tell you stories from past times.
