How safe is Nuremberg?

According to the state police, it has the lowest crime rate of the cities with more than 400 000 inhabitants. I think thats about as safe as you can get in a Western Europe city. (WT-en) Miknon 09:18, 27 Dec 2005 (EST)

Cruise ships[edit]

Cruise ships stop at Nuremberg? Have you looked at the map? Clearly someone's playing a prank... —The preceding comment was added by 219.106.45.144 (talkcontribs)

Wikipedia article for Nuremberg confirms that Nuremberg, despite being an inland city, indeed lies on an important canal and is an important port. While I don't know if Nuremberg really receives 500 cruise ships annually as is currently told by the "by ship" section of the article, I don't think it can be automatically ruled out solely based on geographical facts, either. – (WT-en) Vidimian 11:02, 15 January 2012 (EST)

My edit of 2017 clarifies that these are cruise ships - and there's plenty - but they're on 7 to 14 day tours, not point-to-point ferries. Grahamsands (talk) 13:40, 10 December 2017 (UTC)

Crap[edit]

Sorry some parts of this (especially nightlife and food) is just crap. As a local I tried to edit 1-2 of this, but months later it's still there. Taking this into account, I'd never ever check this site for a vacation.

Did someone reverse your edits? The article looks pretty healthy to me. (I have never edited this article) --Andrewssi2 (talk) 13:21, 19 September 2013 (UTC)

Alternative banner for this article?[edit]

Existing banner
New suggestion

In the Hebrew Wikivoyage we are currently using this banner instead of the one which is currently used here. Do you think too that this banner would would better than the existing one? ויקיג'אנקי (talk) 15:36, 4 November 2013 (UTC)

Here I vote for leaving the current one. There's too much roofing in this one. Jjtkk (talk) 17:22, 4 November 2013 (UTC)
I mildly prefer the new one, because the existing one has too much shadow in the right side. --Danapit (talk) 10:10, 5 November 2013 (UTC)
I think I agree with Dana on this one. I could imagine an even better banner than either of them, but like Dana, I mildly prefer the new banner, though I'm sympathetic to Jjtkk's objection to it. Ikan Kekek (talk) 11:29, 5 November 2013 (UTC)
You have a point with the shadow on the right. Let's change it. Jjtkk (talk) 13:39, 5 November 2013 (UTC)

Listings lacking area code[edit]

Some listings seem to lack the local area code for Nuremberg (0)911 in their phone numbers. Hobbitschuster (talk) 17:39, 6 September 2015 (UTC)

Importing from German WV[edit]

A text box suggests this. Mission accepted, but it won't be straight translation, I'll pluck out relevant info yet hopefully make it more concise. Grahamsands (talk) 21:12, 6 December 2017 (UTC)

Of course. In many cases a direct translation from de-WV would actually be somewhat harmful. But much of the information there is still valuable and fits here. Hobbitschuster (talk) 22:14, 6 December 2017 (UTC)

Ja, so. What it also needs is more orientation, before we plow into the listings. I think the museum entries will work better in their home district, with a round-up of what's in the combi ticket. Grahamsands (talk) 13:37, 10 December 2017 (UTC)

Non-standard "by road" section[edit]

I find it rather baffling that the "get in" section now contains a non-standard "by road" section. It really should be a "by car", "by bus", "by bike" and so on section as the needs may dictate. The current layout is not particularly helpful to someone who might consider a bus but wouldn't consider driving or vice versa. Hobbitschuster (talk) 23:00, 10 December 2017 (UTC)

I'm surprised, as TTCF, is the traveller not looking for transport options rather than a particular modality? So thru condensing subsections that only contain a line or two, the reader lands upon a more compact navigable page.

Sidewise to that, apols that I'm not including umlauts & other diacriticals in first edit savings. I'd reckoned to sprinkle them on later, like a waiter flourishing a peppermill. But my internet access is patchy, TTCF, so Urlaub trumps Umlaut. Grahamsands (talk) 23:27, 10 December 2017 (UTC)

Well you might argue the point that the section should be "by road" instead of "by car" and "by bus" in the pub or at the appropriate policy page, but yes, we do indeed focus on the mode and not the infrastructure. Hobbitschuster (talk) 00:10, 11 December 2017 (UTC)

Okay, I've reverted. Can anyone comment on the remark that the alley by Spittlertor should be avoided as it's the red light district? Is the issue safety, or sleazy shop windows? I don't recall seeing anything untoward or offensive there, but it was a sleepy afternoon. Grahamsands (talk) 10:23, 12 December 2017 (UTC)

Further, in "Do" I propose deleting the big box about the Max Morloch stadium (which has indeed now adopted that name). I'll just leave a comment and link to the Wikipedia article, which covers this grand saga. It's of scant interest to most visitors. Views? Grahamsands (talk) 21:26, 13 December 2017 (UTC)

Please go ahead. Ikan Kekek (talk) 23:38, 13 December 2017 (UTC)
I would oppose removing it. Stories like this give background on some issues (like the one on W. Walker in the Granada or the Nicaragua article or the one on "Emperor Norton" in the San Francisco article) and those that don't wish to read it can just skip it. Dead tress guides also have boxes like that. And he is called Max Morlock, not "Morloch". Hobbitschuster (talk) 23:54, 13 December 2017 (UTC)
Both Walker Granada and Emperor Norton are great stories, well-told, and add to my appreciation of the place - thanks for pointing them out. Whereas I'm sceptical of the Morlock box on all three counts. Eg it doesn't bring out why Max M is such an evocative name in German soccer, so it just seems an unedifying squabble. Grahamsands (talk) 13:23, 14 December 2017 (UTC)
He was German champion twice (1948 & 1961) and one of very few players to play throughout the Oberliga era and into the Bundesliga era. He was also world champion in 1954 and scored the crucial first goal for Germany in the final against Hungary. And I find the story of how the locals and fans - including the local public transit company - stubbornly refused to use sponsorship names and seem to have "won" for now interesting all by itself. I think there is a similar note in the Chicago article about locals not using sponsored names Hobbitschuster (talk) 09:55, 15 December 2017 (UTC)
