Nürnberg, Germany

The major city of northern Bavaria, Nürnberg and surroundings are second in size only to Munich. It has a long history in Christianity, Islam and Judaism, as well as most other religions (even atheism); there are many religious buildings and monuments throughout the city. On the other hand, Nürnberg was used by the Nazis as ‘City of the Party Rallies’. It was almost totally destroyed by Allied bombing in WWII; after the war it was the site of the ‘Nuremberg trials’ of war criminals.

Thousands of photos taken on two trips down the Danube (first trip starting at Calais, France and the second trip from Vlissingen, Netherlands, both all the way to the Black Sea) have been used to create the EuroCanals PhotoNav Guides for the Danube. They include the photos shown on this website.

In full-page format they display the details of landmarks along the route, in a km-by-km sequence. The photos are identified by kilometer post; they include ports, bridges, locks as well as sites worth noting. Examples are described on this page:
