Nuremberg – Spend a day extra

Sightseeing in Nuremberg
The Imperial Castle and the artist Albrecht Dürer are names that are inseparably linked to Nuremberg, but beyond these, there are many other attractive sights to discover and explore: The picturesque Old Town with its ensemble of historical buildings, imposing churches and romantic winding lanes; the rock-cut cellars buried deep within the castle hill and – outside the Old Town – sights like the famous St. John’s cemetery or attractions like the Nuremberg Zoo. You’ll find some of the most interesting things to see and do here.

Meet friends, do business

First of all, PADDLEexpo is a small show and hard to compare with huge multi-sport exhibitions. However, the international paddle sports industry is doing really well and PADDLEexpo is an important part of it:
■ # 15 edition this year
■ More buyers than ever before at the previous show (2016)
■ More brands than ever before at PADDLEexpo 2017
■ More exhibitors’ stands than ever before at PADDLEexpo 2017

In other words: More reasons for attending PADDLEexpo than ever before!
