Goldener Hirsch Review
Celebrities from Picasso to Pavarotti have favored the "Golden Stag" for its legendary Gemütlichkeit, patrician pampering, and adorable decor. It's near the most popular sites, but double-paned windows ensure you won't hear a thing once you enter this special, private world. Inside it's delightfully rustic, with hand-carved wood, peasant-luxe furniture, and some of the lowest ceilings in town; the stag motif is even on lamp shades, which were hand-painted by an Austrian countess. As it's a historic treasure, expect some rooms to have snug, yet cozy, dimensions (some readers have written in alarm about some far-flung rooms tucked under the eave). There are two restaurants: the regal dining room and a smaller bistro. The latter is set on the pretty Sigmundsplatz, and locals love its cozy, timbered look and the house specialty, Nürnberger Bratwürstl (half a dozen little roasted Nürnberg sausages served with sauerkraut and served on pewter heart-shaped plates).
