About our home

Nuremberg's sights, museums and restaurants are open. We are vaccinated.

Our middle of the row house with a small garden is located in a quiet and green residential area in Nürnberg near the zoo, with super easy and quick access with public transport to the old town centre and famous historic sights. Our home was built in 1969 and is partly renovated. It has an eclectic style with some original features but also lots of modern and quirky details. We have a terrace and a small garden both with shady and sunny areas.

The house has 3 levels plus a cellar the full length of the house with storage area, wash kitchen etc. There is an an open plan living area with a spacious sofa on the ground floor, a guest room/ study with a double sofa bed and our son's spacious room (big enough for two small children) with balcony on the 1st floor and a smallish master bedroom with double bed on the 2nd.
We have 3 toilets ,a separate walk in shower and a freshly redone family bathroom. Parking is free and easy in the streets around the house. There are 3-4 big supermarkets and bakeries a short drive or 10- 15 WALK away- for basics and bread we always walk .
There is cleaning fee of 50 EUR ( points swaps).
