Nuremberg is the second-largest city in the German state of Bavaria. Traditionally famous for its Christmas Market, which is said to be one of the oldest in the world, this German city has started to gain prominence in a number of important spheres in the recent past. Led by mayor Marcus König, the Bavarian city is committed to the issues of climate protection, urban development, sustainability, human rights, and equality, among others. König was born in Nuremberg in 1980 and has served as a mayor of his home city since May 2020. Mayor König shows great determination to tackle all of the most important issues Nuremberg residents are faced with. Like many other cities in Germany, Nuremberg is growing rapidly. That requires smart urban development policies which can ensure that all residents of the city have access and adequate and affordable housing. This is one of the main goals the mayor of Nuremberg is continuously working on. At the same time, mayor König is equally committed to the issues of social justice, equality and human rights. Providing equal opportunities to Nuremberg residents of all ages remains one of the most important tasks of mayor König. Furthermore, he is also working on strengthening the image of Nuremberg as a city of diversity where everyone is welcome. In August 2021, he became the first mayor of Nuremberg to participate in Christopher Street Day, an annual European LGBTQ+ celebration and demonstration. This way, mayor of Nuremberg made a significant contribution to the climate of openness and tolerance, which are growing to be Nuremberg’s trademarks. Nuremberg and mayor König also have climate and environment in focus. Among German cities, which have generally positioned themselves as leaders against climate change, Nuremberg has also achieved a high level of respect. Cycling is regularly promoted and significant investments are made to the cycling infrastructure. The number of cycling lanes is rapidly increasing. The city is actively working on bringing as much greenery as possible into the city. Planting trees, investing in green spaces contribute to a healthier and more pleasant living environment for all Nuremberg’s residents, which is why the Bavarian city prioritizes environmentally beneficial practices and policies. Climate change, alternative energy sources, and energy conservation are all issues that the city has been actively addressing for quite some time. Thanks to the excellent leadership by mayor König, Nuremberg is guaranteed to remain an attractive city where residents of all ages can enjoy a high quality of life. (photo credit: wikipedia)
