Part 2 of my five part series looking back at my photographic journey through 2019 features favorite images from my hometown Nuremberg, the city that gives this blog its name.
Spending less time on travel for the job that pays the bills resulted in being more at home in 2019. That gave me more time to venture out and explore my own city. This was also the year I connected with the Nuremberg Instagram community. And so I had the opportunity to join Instawalks to location where normally photography is not permitted. Like visiting Nuremberg’s Albrecht Dürer Airport, the NürnbergMesse Convention Center and the subway system (links to my blog posts about the Instawalks at the end of this post). Not only was I able to photograph fascinating places, but the real fun was connecting to some great likeminded photographers.
February brought some snow, creating a beautiful winter atmosphere in the Old Town. I ran around town for a full evening (with an aluminium tripod- that I since changed into a carbon version) and I nearly froze to death. But I bagged myself some beautiful images of historic Nuremberg below the Imperial Castle.
Another first was to finally head out to Rechenberg Park. From here, twice a year, you can photograph the sun setting directly behind the Imperial castle. Definitely one of Nuremberg’s most spectacular views.
What is always nice is a photo walk through the Old Town along the Pegnitz River. You can crisscross the seven bridges that connect the Lorenzer- and Sebalder districts of historic Nuremberg.
And in December I finally climbed the North tower of St. Lorenz Church for spectacular night views across Nuremberg Old Town. The photo below shows the view towards St. Sebald Church and the Imperial Castle. It was taken from the gallery around the left tower, just below the green-roofed tower tops.
I hope you enjoyed this little visual tour around the 2019 Nuremberg, a glimpse into the variety our city has to offer to its visitors. Have I mentioned that Nuremberg is applying to be Europe’s Cultural Capital in 2025 ?
Stay tuned for more of my photographic journey through 2019. Tomorrow I will post my favorite images from shooting people and events, like my first stint as official wedding photographer.
