I've got a flexible itinerary planned for traveling from Paris to Berlin by train over about two weeks in April. I'd like to stop for a night in Nuremberg, mostly to see the Nazi sites and the Nuremberg Trials Courtroom. But it looks like there's a convention or something in town that week, and hotel rooms are pretty booked and remaining rooms are very expensive or far out of town. I'll probably be in Rothenburg ob der Tauber the night before, and after Nuremberg I'm going on to Dresden.
I'm considering skipping a night in Nuremberg at all and stopping for a few hours, maybe half a day, instead, before heading on to Dresden the same day. I see there are lockers at the train station in Nuremberg. I know the train travel times to and from - I know it will be a long day and I'll probably get into Dresden late. I think that might be OK.
Does this sound like a feasible plan? I know the Nazi sites in Nuremberg are not in the center of town and it will take some time to get to/from them. I would like to spend at least a bit of time exploring the old town, too. (Unfortunately, I might be in town on a Tuesday and it looks like the courtroom is not open that day.)
Alternately, I could spend a night say in Würzburg or another town (?) instead before going to Dresden the next day, to allow a less hurried day visit to Nuremberg. I don't want to go back to Rothenburg ob der Tauber the same day because it appears to be a long series of trains to Dresden from there.
Thanks for your suggestions!
