THE TOWN: Nuremberg is a city on the river Pegnitz and on the Rhine–Main–Danube Canal in the German state of Bavaria about 170 kilometres (110 mi) north of Munich. It is the second-largest city in Bavaria (after Munich).

For Lonely Planet this town is “an energetic place where the nightlife is intense and the beer is as dark as coffee. As one of Bavaria’s biggest draws it is alive with visitors year-round, but especially during the spectacular Christmas market.

For centuries, Nuremberg was the undeclared capital of the Holy Roman Empire and the preferred residence of most German kings, who kept their crown jewels here. Rich and stuffed with architectural wonders, it was also a magnet for famous artists, though the most famous of all, Albrecht Dürer, was actually born here. ‘Nuremberg shines throughout Germany like a sun among the moon and stars,’ gushed Martin Luther. By the 19th century, the city had become a powerhouse in Germany’s industrial revolution.

The Nazis saw a perfect stage for their activities in working class Nuremberg. It was here that the fanatical party rallies were held, the boycott of Jewish businesses began and the infamous Nuremberg Laws outlawing German citizenship for Jewish people were enacted. On 2 January 1945, Allied bombers reduced the city to landfill, killing 6000 people in the process.

After WWII the city was chosen as the site of the war crimes tribunal, now known as the Nuremberg Trials. Later, the painstaking reconstruction – using the original stone – of almost all the city’s main buildings, including the castle and old churches in the Altstadt, returned the city to some of its former glory.

Stuttgart – Who will win the Porsche 911 Carrera this year in Germany?

THE TOURNAMENT: WTA PREMIER Porsche Tennis Grand Prix

From 04/24 to 04/30

Prize money: $ 710,900

Surface: Clay indoor

Tournament location: Porsche Arena – Mercedesstrasse 69, 70372 Stuttgart, Germany

How to get: By public transport you can use S1, S2 or S3 SBahn or respectively the R1, R2, R3 or R8 trains to the Bad Cannstatt station. Then Bus 56 (Wagenburgstraße). Driving distance from Stuttgart Mitte is 12 minutes (5,7 km). Stuttgart Airport is far 18 km and 22 minutes driving from venue.

Defending champion and Nr.1 of the seeding Angelique Kerber

THE TOWN: Stuttgart is the capital and largest city of the German state of Baden-Württemberg and it is located on the Neckar river in a fertile valley locally known as the “Stuttgart Cauldron”. Stuttgart’s urban area has a population of 623,738, making it the sixth largest city in Germany. It is unusual in the scheme of German cities because it is spread across a variety of hills, valleys and parks. This is often a source of surprise to visitors who associate the city with its reputation as the ‘Cradle of the Automobile‘. The city’s tourism slogan is “Stuttgart offers more“.

For Lonely Planet: “The real Stuttgart is less superficial than legend. True, some good-living locals like their cars fast and their restaurants fancy, but most are just as happy getting their boots dirty in the surrounding vine-clad hills and hanging out with friends in the rustic confines of a Weinstube (wine tavern). In the capital of Baden-Württemberg, city slickers and down-to-earth country kids walk hand in hand.”
