Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour
Nuremberg is full of history so it’s a must-see city for history fans! What is great about this tour is that you have a private guide, and you can choose between three different tour durations depending on how much time you have. It’s super flexible!
What You Can Expect
While walking, hear tales of the city’s past – from bygone days as a center of the Holy Roman Empire to its days under the dark spell of the Nazis during the Third Reich. 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.
After a break for lunch or a snack (own expense), board a public bus and travel to Nuremberg’s Nazi party rally grounds, a short journey away from the Old Town. Head inside and explore the grounds with your guide, seeing intriguing places like Luitpold Arena and the half-finished Congress Hall – a vast building that Hitler planned to use for party meetings. Gaze at the largest Third Reich buildings where Hitler inspected members of the Schutzstaffel (Nazi secret police), and then see where crowds once gathered on Great Street. You'll also visit 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 your central Nuremberg hotel with your guide.
