Nuremberg, the second largest city in northern Bavaria after Munich, is an important center for arts and culture. The city has also long been associated with advances in science and technology, particularly in printing - it was home to Europe's first printing press - and astronomy (Nicolaus Copernicus's most famous work was published here in 1543).
Why exhibit there
Nuremberg benefits from its central location in the European economic region. Transport, logistics, technology and research are among Nuremberg’s key industries. Each year more than 1.3 million visitors attend 75 major trade fairs and conferences, including the world’s largest toy event.
Once you touch down in Nuremberg's airport you can be in the Altstadt (old town), at the end of U-Bahn line 2, within 13 minutes.
Restrictions on what you can bring into the country
There are the usual restrictions plus a few extras: no instruments of torture, no dangerous dogs, you’re not allowed to move stolen works of art nor are you allowed conflict or blood diamonds.

Where to eat
- Albrecht Dürer Stube - this restaurant offers a succulent menu of traditional Nuremberg fare, including sausages, steaks, fish and seasonal vegetables.
- Heilig Geist Spital - The menu here is seasonal.
- Bratwursthäusle - There’s nothing pretentious about this crowded joint, and it really is a carnivore’s heaven with all meat sourced from sustainable sources.
- Local currency is the Euro.
- Language is German, although most people also speak English.
- Visa - if you’re from within the EU you don’t need one, outwith the EU you’ll have to check the list.
- Plug sockets are the two prong European type.
- There are no real cultural sensitivities so to speak, but advice for conducting business meetings:
- When meeting Germans for the first time in a business context, short and firm handshakes are the norm.
- Make sure you maintain eye contact throughout.
- Titles and qualifications are held in high regard, so if someone does have a doctorate or a degree, make sure you refer to them as doctor or whatever their title may be.
- The more letters you can put after your name on your business card, the more impressed your German colleagues will be.
