Nuremberg draw after being behind
Hamburg forward Son Heung-min wasted two late chances to secure a victory.
Tomas Pekhart used a perfect low cross from Timo Gebhart to volley the equalizer in the 75th minute and give Nuremberg's new coaching duo of Michael Wiesinger and Armin Reutershahn a relatively successful debut after the departure of Dieter Hecking for Wolfsburg.
Striker Artjoms Rudnevs had put Hamburg ahead five minutes earlier, heading in a cross from Dennis Aogo.
Earlier, Nuremberg's Javier Pinola hit the post while trying to clear.
Son's header from five meters out produced a one-handed save from Raphael Schaefer in the 77th and the South Korean struck the post in injury time.
