Guided tour:

TUNNELS AND SECRET PASSAGES

The castle’s hidden defences

Deep within Nuremberg’s bastions, secret winding passages were built to defend the city. A labyrinth of metre-high casemates, the embrasures of which were used to fire at all angles across the moat. Fortifications that were never breached by the enemy and earned Nuremberg the reputation of being the best-protected city in the German Empire.
