Nuremberg is the home to arguably the most famous food export from Germany, sausage. Yet, it is not the only option offered to hungry visitors. The city is littered with excellent dining spots bearing fascinating histories, as well as eclectic menus. Here are 10 of the best restaurants in this Bavarian city.
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.
