You sure have seen much more of "my" country than I did! We´ve been there only very shorty on the way back from Italy... A crazy world!

Su-sieee! Mac

What if they let the rotting chairs show to remind us in the gut how and why we don't want tyrants in power? I suppose there were continue to be a population that would use the rotted chairs (such as the confederate flag) as inspiration to conspire in anger and hatred. Sallie, I'm glad you wrote and showed the good about Nuremberg. My brain tends to freeze German history at WWII.

A fascinating city despite it's tainted history. Evil doesn't care where it raises it's ugly head. I'm glad you had a nice time in the city and could reflect in peaceful times. Those cookies sound delicious. :)

I have not visited Nuremberg, but know of course its dark reputation as the place of the Nazi party meetings. I'm just reading a novel by Italian Rosella Postorino At the Wolf's table that tells about Hitler's food tasters. Cruel & terrible history.

What an interesting, and perhaps difficult, place to visit. Such a dark past but so much beauty to be found in the city. Excellent post.

I love historic city centers in Europe. How fun was this????

Michelle

This is a horrible legacy, but preserving it to teach others of the hate it provided is a lesson worth sharing. Thanks for linking up.

I sure brings all the history to life when you visit places like this. Beautiful photos! We survived the week with no damage! WHEW! Hugs, Diane

Sharon Wagner

Thanks for thinking of my Florida family. Luckily, they're on the gulf coast. Yikes. Dorian is deadly. It looks like a wonderful trip. I'll be back with a travel linky next week.

 Hi! The fountain looks very beautiful. It's a good news that many art treasures survived against the heavy air raids.

Wow, Sallie, these are some wonderful pieces of history! It's so neat to see the beauty of the old and new and to learn about the war and other things.

I'm happy to see your link on 'My Corner of the World' this week! Thanks for linking up!

Enjoyed the tour. Great pics!

William Kendall

A place I would love to see someday. Beautiful shots.

Amy Franks

Wow one of those places packed with history, reminds me of the Nuremburg trials.

What a beautiful town and your photos are impressive. Hard to imagine its history. I feel the same way when I walk on the Manassas Civil War Battlefield not too far away from home. So horrific at the time and yet so peaceful now. I feel it is important to remember the history of these places. This must have been an incredible vacation, to see all the sights you've seen. Thanks for sharing them Sallie :)

Gattina

You have seen exactly the same things which were on our program too. I didn't visit all, the Germans don't like to be remember these terrible times because so many of family were killed. I admired that they had rebuilt the city so nicely. It's stil famous for his Christmas market and Christmas decoration and of course the ginger bread. My aunt was a translator in the Nürnberg war crime trials. I had been in Nürnberg once before for work, but we only saw night clubs in the evening I was 23 ! And was there also for translations ! But not the same it was for the toy fair !

...Sallie, you surely found some beautiful treasures in Nuremberg, thanks for taking me along. I hope that you are enjoying your week.

Veronica Lee

I really enjoyed this interesting tour of Nuremberg. Love the photos.

Linda Walcroft

There is much to be learned from the history of Nuremberg. Some people see unaware of the trials after the war, and how you can be punished for taking advantage of power in a cruel and inhumane way.

Sandra Nachlinger

This looks like a fascinating tour. I enjoy walking while on vacation, whenever possible, because by slowing down we see so much more. Thank you for sharing your adventure.

Penelope Notes

I am often struck by how much more painstakingly artistic, elegant and thoughtfully structured the historic buildings seem to be. It was interesting about a significant focus on WW2 since many seem to be forgetting the importance and vital nature of the post war European Union.

Lorrie

I enjoyed this photo tour of Nuremburg. The history and dark events of WWII are so close to us, and we have to remember that there is much much history behind those years. Taking a long look back is helpful and oh, so interesting. I especially enjoyed the medieval city walls.

Nuremberg - wow, in my childhood it was almost weekly in the news because of all the trials of world war II going on there. You saw several sides of this city, and whee it was known for, in Germany. I didn't know about the toys. But again in my early years of marriage, I love the German wooden toys and bought them for my children. Many thanks Sallie for an honest presentation of this city for All Seasons. Have a beautiful week:)

Taken For Granted

What a sad and brutal history this place has. May it find peace and happiness in the future.

Debbie

i'm not sure how i would feel visiting nuremberg, with it's dark and disturbing history. i have read so much about world war II, i am not sure i would see the "beautiful" city that you saw, but i'm glad you did.

i remember eating a cookie like that in epcot, i remember it being delicious!!

i have enjoyed your trip, your pictures are so beautiful!!

Lady Fi

Fascinating and beautiful all at the same time!

A beautiful place with an extensive history. Hopefully people won't forget the history and its lessons.
Thanks for sharing, Sallie.

Alan Bates

It looks like a great place to visit. What gets me is that in my mind all the horrors of the Nazi regime were not that long ago.

Heidrun

Happy MosaicMonday... welcome in Nürnberg, a well known town for me.

Greetings, Heidrun

I am afraid that Nuremberg will forever be associated with Naziism and that dark and awful era in human history, culminating in the Nuremberg trials held after the war. I fear that in many respects, however, we have failed to learn from this recent past, and with the rise of nationalist movements in Europe and elsewhere it could all happen again. In your own country, Sallie, under a despicable president (duly elected mind you) thugs feel emboldened to march publicly chanting "Jews will not replace us" and other vile slogans straight out of pre World War II Germany. My blood runs cold,

Angie

Sallie - we can only hope and pray that the human race has learned its lessons from the many armed conflicts down through the centuries. It is hard to imagine them now with your sunny pictures! Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday!

Pat

This was so interesting. The name Nuremberg definitely conjures up sad and disturbing events, but it is also a beautiful city full of better history.
I will have to catch up again on your posts, Sallie. We spent much of August trying to make up for July where we stayed close to home while my husband received radiation. We took our grandkids places in August and enjoyed a lot of local attractions. Hard to believe summe ris almost over!

Jennifer Jilks

I love traveling this way. I'm not a good traveler!!!

Carol

A place with a dark history but beautiful none the less.

Sondra

...the old and new look pretty good! It is a horrible legacy they still trying to live down and I think they are doing a great job of it.

Cathy Keller

Amen, that peace and justice will prevail! A wonderfully informative post! Thank you!
