The city's most important business factors include market research as well as print, communications technology, energy and power electronics, logistics and traffic. The international toy trade fair is the highlight of the Nuremberg trade fair year.

The Franconian metropolis of Nuremberg is a historic city in Bavaria. The city is a tourist focus for guests from around the world. It is famous for the great number of shops, its many sights, its architecture (half-timbered houses) and culinary meeting sites.

The Kaiserburg, the city's trademark, its intact walls of 5 km length spanning today's old town and the famous Main Market on which the world-renowned "Christkindlesmarkt" takes place around Christmas, forms the centre. The Franconian bratwurst and the Nuremberg gingerbread are legendary and tasty not only to us Franconians but also to our multicultural guests from around the world.
