Kunstbunker – a bunker for art
Under the famous castle in Nuremberg, there are various cellars drawn into the rock. One of them was used as a bunker during World War II. Artifacts from churches and museums were hidden there to protect them from attacks and secure them. The Kunstbunker shows us an interesting exhibition about that special time. It is an opportunity to get an impression of the special atmosphere in these stone cellars. Wartimes were rough for the town, which also gave place to some Nazi events.
You find the Kunstbunker directly near the castle near Tiergärtnertor-Platz. This rock cellar is only one of captivating corridors drawn into the stone. They are guided tours into special rock corridors in the underground, showing prisons and an old beer-cellar. But beware: Some guides speak the local dialect “Fränkisch” and you might need another local who can translate this into English. So, you get an idea of the local language here.
This place is not only known for its entrance to the Kunstbunker. Nurembergers call it Dürerplatz. These different names can be confusing for foreigners, as there is another original Albrecht-Dürer-Platz nearby. What is so special about the Tiergärtnertor-Platz? Especially in the springtime with first warm evenings, everybody is sitting outside and there is a very spontaneous atmosphere. Street musicians join and are part of this exceptional place. It is made for you to relax and to enjoy springtime in Nuremberg. Nurembergers love the easy life outside, just be a part of it during your time at the Interzoo.
Hausbrauerei Altstadthof brewery
Do you love beer? We talk about an original beer from Franconia here. If you like to give this beer a try, the brewery Altstadthof could be the right address for you. It is situated directly under the castle in the historical buildings you find there. Maybe you must look for it because it cannot be found at the first glance for the somewhat winding passages here. You can buy enormous bottles of beer there as a takeaway. So, possibly, this is a good opportunity to take your beer to the already mentioned Tiergärtnertor-Platz and join the locals there. Is there a more relaxed way to enjoy the evening after business at the Interzoo than a bottle of beer and nice people around?
