Nürnberg needs no introduction, being both the largest town and unofficial capital of Franconia. With its fairy-tale skyline and hilltop castle, it’s an understandable draw for hordes of tourists.  For the beer tourist, it’s a bit lacking in true old world experiences but there are more than a few places to have a beer and it makes a great base for exploring the considerable beery paradises around it.
