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.
