Nuremberg was first mentioned in a deed in 1050 a.d. In 1219 Nuremberg became a Free Imperial City. In 1806 Nuremberg lost its independence and was integrated into the new state of Bavaria (to which it still belongs).
The old town of Nuremberg is situated below the hill of Nuremberg castle and is divided in half by the river Pegnitz.
The part of the old town south of the river is called the Lorenzer Altstadt while the northern part is called Sebalder Altstadt. The names are derived from the largest churches in each of the sections.
