Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour
This is a must-do tour for all history fans – especially those interested in the Third Reich – as it includes sights of the largest Third Reich buildings in the world.
What You Can Expect
Nuremberg’s architecture beckons to its layered history, too, and many examples of the city’s different architectural styles are covered on your tour. Admire St Lawrence Church – rebuilt after World War II – and pass Schöner Brunnen, a replica of a 14th-century water feature that aptly translates as the ‘beautiful fountain.’ Walk around the medieval city walls, stop for photos outside Albrecht Dürer House and stroll through Nuremberg Castle’s Imperial courtyards.
The next part of your tour involves a trip by the town’s efficient public transport – either by bus or train. Your ticket is included in your tour so simply hop aboard with your guide, and then disembark at the Nuremberg’s Nazi party rally grounds.
Head inside and explore the grounds with your guide, seeing intriguing places like the half-finished Congress Hall – a gigantic building that Hitler planned to use for party meetings – and the Great Street that was designed purely for parades. Gaze at the largest Third Reich buildings where Hitler inspected members of the Schutzstaffel (the SS, the Nazi secret police). Your visit also includes entry to the Documentation Center (own expense), the large on-site museum that exhibits information on key wartime and post-war events like the Nuremberg Trials.
If you want to spend longer at the Documentation Center, then finish your tour inside and browse the exhibitions independently. Alternatively, return to central Nuremberg by public transport with your guide, finishing your tour by the start point.
It was a great tour with a great guide, Achim. He was very knowledgable about the history of the city and answered all questions in great detail. the tour is not for the whole day so you get a great overview in a reasonable amount of time.
Lovely tour guide although we have forgotten his name. Extremely helpful and informative. Fantastic tour.
