Nuremberg is a dazzlingly picturesque little city, with big city amenities. The historic town center sprawls from the impressive train station across the central square and past half-timber buildings along Pegnitz River up the hill to the imperial castle. You can have a look-out over the city from the castle, or climb one of the towers that are along the city wall. Nuremberg was certainly changed by World War II, and as a tourist from a Nuremburg hostel you'll likely be confronted with this fact. The city was majorly bombed and then the town center was largely rebuilt to its pre-war state, the outer parts have been somewhat changed and as in many cities, modernized in their reconstruction. Though the deepest scar Nuremberg may have is its association with the atrocities, especially from the Nuremberg Trials. You can learn more by visiting the Documentation Centre or even by touring the historic underground caverns, where beer was historically brewed and then the tunnels were re-functioned by the Nazi army.

The hostels in Nuremberg like to make claim to being near to the train station -- many are, and this is a fine location, especially for travelers arriving and departing by train, bus, or ride-share (as the back parking lot south of the station is a popular meeting point). Other Nuremberg hostels are further outside of the city, and maybe more suitable if you're driving. Check to see how the public transportation is, as the S-Bahn (commuter train) and U-Bahn (underground) systems are quite thorough and cheap, especially for a city of well under one million inhabitants. If you're a group of two adults (and have up to four kids or bikes) and are planning to travel around the area, get yourself the "TagesTicket Plus" for all-day travel.
