The dungeons are not the only interesting thing about underground Nuremberg. Directly under Nuremberg Castle is the bunker that was used to protect the most precious artwork of the city from bombing raids during WWII. This 24-meter deep network of rock passages is today a museum displaying the artwork that survived WWII, as well as guard rooms, musical instruments, clocks, furniture, etc., from the bygone times.
