Nuremberg Castle - Germany

 Nuremberg castle sent by Violet "violanie59".

"Nuremberg Castle is one of the most important castles in the history of the German Empire. Between 1050 and 1571 all the German and Holy Roman Emperors lived there at various times. Nuremberg Castle was built in stages on a sandstone hill on the north side of Nurembergs's old city and there are actually three parts to the castle: the Kaiserburg (Emperor's Castle) in the west and complete in itself, the Burggrafenveste (Count's Castle) in the middle and also the oldest part, and the Stadtburg (part belonging to the Imperial City) on the eastern side." -
The castle was damaged in the Second World War but then reconstructed; today it is one of the main landmarks in Nuremberg.
