"Day 9 (28 Sept) Nuremberg"
"Today, spend a relaxing morning of cruising, and before lunch, attend a fascinating ONBOARD LECTURE about the engineering marvel that is the Main Danube Canal. The afternoon is dedicated to Nuremberg. Although 90% of Nurembergs Old Town suffered extensive damage during WWII, much of it has been restored to the glory it once knew as the unofficial capital of the Holy Roman Empire. Today, choose either a GUIDED SIGHTSEEING TOUR and marvel at this thousand-year-old citys medieval fortifications, extraordinary gothic churches, and the Kaiserburg (Imperial Castle), or join a more specialized NUREMBERG RALLY GROUNDS tour. During free time, be sure to make a wish at the beautiful fountain in the Hauptmarkt (main square). Legend says your wish will come true if you turn its gold ring three times."

How it works.
As can be seen, a rather tight fit! Our cabin view was a blank wall!
And now back to touring ...
The Imposing Nuremberg Train Station
A nice shot of the tower ... and Keith's nose .. and Fran's frown.

The double-green towers are St.Lawrence Church
In the background is the Church of Our Lady
