The name is deceptive: The Fliegerclub Nürnberg (Nuremberg Flying Club) is not one club; there is four. This blanket term includes the model flying club, the gliding club, the parachute club and the small plane club. Each of these four interest groups offers a range of possibilities for those wanting to develop their skills or acquire them. They are also affiliated to the German Aviation Association. There are different locations for meetings and if you want to see Franconia and its metropole Nuremberg from a different angle then why not enquire about going on a airborne trip in a small plane. Flight tours are offered throughout the year and booking is not necessary in advance.
Hallenbad Nordost has a cafeteria, sunbeds and a lovely outdoor pool which is heated and open throughout the year. There is also a paddling pool, a teaching pool and a 25m racing pool. On Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays you can participate in the Aqua Aerobics class for free.
When visiting this church you may feel as if you've come upon a lost German castle. The steep, teal steeples hover over the nearby trees and the bricks give it an old-world quality. It was actually built during the 1930's by the architect, Gottfried Dauner.
After World War Two which resulted in the greater part Nuremberg being reduced to rubble, an Altstadtmuseum (Old City Museum) was founded to remind the citizens of the Franconian metropole's former architectural beauty. The Fembo House (built in 1420), which was once the home of a rich family was chosen to house this new museum. It was one of the few remaining historic buildings and its pretty exterior stands out. The building's rich interior is splendid with many rooms containing a priceless collection of furniture and art. It was recently re-opened and the newly arranged collection and renovated rooms, many of which feature impressive stucco decorations are as splendid as ever. One new addition which has resulted from this closure is the wooden and clay model of the city, which is brought to life by lighting and sound effects. Also worth mentioning is the 'Beautiful Room' which was once part of the Peller House (Pellerhaus). Over 30 rooms are open to the public, each giving a unique insight into the domestic environment in which the rich citizens once lived. The courtyard, which has an 18 meter deep well can be viewed free of charge.
This theatre company, whose odd name means 'Theatre-Puddle' aims to make theatre fun for all. The main focus group is children, but many adults have also delighted in productions such as The Little Prinz. All productions are 'audience tested' before their premiere so that they are as satisfactory as possible. The stage is easily adapted to what is being performed. There is also a nice little cafe, play area for younger children and a drama group.
The Bibelerlebnishaus (The Bible Experience) gives visitors an opportunity to learn new and interesting facts about the good book. There are three rooms which contain items such as a bible computer. There is also a tour and if you wish, you can book the common room for a seminar or meeting. Wheelchair users should note that there are some steps at the entrance.
A walk throught this outdoor complex will make you realise how much we take our senses for granted in everyday life. There are 60 stops, including a humming stone, sound stations, dark rooms and a maze. The concept behind the Erfahrungsfeld der Sinne can be attributed to Hugo Kükelhaus, who died in 1984. He believed that we could only understand the world properly if we were aware of how to use our senses. The whole outing is enjoyable for adults and children. You can also hold children's birthday parties here and there is a beer garden as well.
One of the main attractions at the transport museum is the Adler, (Eagle) which was Germany's first steam engine (1895). Opened in 1899, the museum has been at the Lessingstra premises since 1985. The fact that the museum is one of the most visited in the city is no doubt down to the fact that it has a great deal to offer. Learn about how the railways developed, marvel at the models and explore the historic carriages on display. There is also an impressive section on the Post Office, which contains a fine collection of stamps and also focuses on the history of telecommunications.

Located in the gardens of Luitpoldhain, this aquarium features entertainment for children and adults alike.
Completed in 1928, Frankenstadion is a slice of sporting history in the heart of Nuremberg. Shortly after its construction, the stadium was awarded a gold medal for artistic design and has since seen numerous German Football League matches.

Seating over 44,000 people, this stadium offers excellent views of the action on the ground for all spectators.

The Germans love outdoor swimming pools and whenever the sun is out you'll find pools like this one full of people of all age-groups. Children and teenagers rush to get here after school, pensioners meet for a chat and office-workers come for a quick dip in their lunch-break.
