    About Nürnberger (Nuremberg)

    Nuremberg is a city on the river Pegnitz and the Rhine–Main–Danube Canal in the German state of Bavaria, in the administrative region of Middle Franconia, about 170 kilometres north of Munich. It is the second-largest city in Bavaria (after Munich) and the population of 517,498 makes it Germany's fourteenth-largest city.

    Nuremberg is often referred to as having been the 'unofficial capital' of the Holy Roman Empire, particularly because Imperial Diet (Reichstag) and courts met at Nuremberg Castle. The Diets of Nuremberg were an important part of the administrative structure of the empire. It was also the venue for the Nazi war crime trials following World War 2.

    It also is an important center for arts and culture, as evidenced by the popular National Germanic Museum.

    Bertens makes her second WTA final. Complete headcase, but she has a good game. Did well in the Fed cup too. Hope she wins.
