Nürnberg (or Nuremberg) is a German city situated on the Pegnitz River, around 100 miles from Munich. The city was of great importance during the Nazi Germany era, as it was chosen as the venue for a number of Nazi Party conventions at the time; the Nuremberg rallies.

The city's station is an important stop for a number of national and international rail routes. The Nuremberg-Ingolstadt-Munich high-speed line opened in 2006, which now means that travel times to/from Munich are just one hour.
