Loved by over 40s

Albrecht Dürer Stube

Restaurant, German

Located in close proximity to the castle, Albrecht Dürer Stube is an intimate Franconian restaurant that remains drenched in the history of the 450-year-old building it occupies. Today, it is still run by the same family, three generations down, and offers a succulent menu of traditional Nuremberg fare, including sausages, steaks, fish and seasonal vegetables.

Heilig Geist Spital

Restaurant, German, European

For those on the lookout for an ancient setting to dine in, Heilig Geist Spital restaurant is the perfect choice. The building itself remains one of the most historic spots in Nürnberg, albeit more for the German culinary offerings it presents to its patrons. The menu here is seasonal and dishes are served inside the dark carved wood rooms or outside in the pretty courtyard in the warmer months.


Restaurant, European, Vegetarian

Representing over 500 years of gastronomic history, Essigbrätlein is first mentioned in the city’s records in 1596, and over the centuries, visitors will be delighted to note that it really hasn’t changed much. Yet, the menu has evolved, and the establishment is open for lunch and dinner, offering a perfect array of unique and imaginative flavors to inspire the taste buds.

Padelle d'Italia

Restaurant, Italian

The taste of Italy really comes home to Padelle d’Italia, a welcoming restaurant situated right in the centre of Nürnberg’s old town. Offering a tantalizing selection of Tuscan specialities and delectable wine, it is really one of the best places to dine if on the lookout for Mediterranean cuisine.



The very first Nürnberger sausage was cooked to perfection over a wood fire back in 1313, and to this day, the tradition continues. The best place to go for authentic sausage is at the Bratwursthäusle at St. Sebald in the center of town. There’s nothing pretentious about this crowded joint, and it really is a carnivore’s heaven with all meat sourced from sustainable sources.
Bratwursthäusle, Rathausplatz 1, Nürnberg, Germany, +49 911 227695

Prison St Michel

Restaurant, French, Seafood, European

Prison St Michel is an excellent restaurant specializing in gourmet cuisine. Located in a quiet street a stone’s throw away from the castle, the French establishment is located on a site of an old factory, with the antique décor providing it with its rustic charm. Alongside an extensive wine list, diners can choose from many options, from traditional onion soup to platters of meat and fish.

Hoserer Rolly's American Diner

Diner, Restaurant, American

If you’ve had your fill of bratwurst and pork knuckle, why not opt for an American burger to satisfy your hunger? Located in an idyllic spot on the edge of the Reichelsdorf forest, Hoserer Rolly’s American Diner specializes in succulent meat patties, ribs, chicken wings and steaks; for an authentic taste of Americana in the heart of Germany, look no further.


Since 1979, restaurant Delphi has been serving up quality Greek cuisine in the heart of Germany. Although the establishment boasts a stylish and modern setting, its extensive menu goes back to traditional Mediterranean roots. From cold appetizers of taramasalata and tzaziki to hot starters of options such as grilled oyster mushrooms, roast goat’s milk cheese and authentic dolmades. Visitors are encouraged to dive right into the plethora of fish, grilled meat and slow-cooked dishes on offer.
