Nuremberg Day Trip from Munich

Travel to Nuremburg by train on a full-day trip to one of Germany's most beautiful cities. Enjoy a fully-guided visit of the city, as well as an optional visit to the Documentation Center on this rail tour from Munich. Nuremberg is a beautiful, old city with a vibrant history. This was where the Third Reich strutted in all of its pomp against an epic backdrop of grandiose marching grounds. It was also where an international war crimes tribunal later held that same Nazi leadership to account amidst the rubble of the defeated city.

Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

This is a comprehensive tour of a city with a rich and somber history. I highly recommend the optional visit to the Nazi Documentation Center to learn more about what led to the ascent of the Nazi Party and the devastating aftermath.

What You Can Expect

Nuremberg Day Trip from Munich

Charming architecture, Nuremberg

The locations of the iconic scenes captured in films such as Triumph of the Will - the rally grounds where Hitler addressed his multitudes, the astonishing Congress Hall, the entire region designed as a "new Rome" by the architect Albert Speer - are still largely intact. We'll take you there and tell you the story.

You'll also see the other Nuremberg that locals are rightly proud of. The medieval fortifications of the striking old town, Gothic churches, colorful market places and hilltop castle of the old imperial city are as awe-inspiring today as ever.

Nuremberg hosted the Imperial Diet (or parliament) of the Holy Roman Empire and was nominated an Imperial Free City by the Emperor Frederick II. It was a center of cultural vitality at the center of major imperial trade routes. It played a key role in the Reformation, and in the printing and scientific revolutions that shaped the modern world. It was home to one of Germany's oldest Jewish communities.

The old rally grounds today host a major Documentation Center that maps all of this painful history in detailed clarity and represents evidence of Nuremberg's determination to come to terms with its past.

Our expert English-speaking guide will accompany you on the pleasant 1.5 hour train journey from Munich and back again, giving you a comprehensive tour through this unique city.

Great tour. We wanted to go to Nuremberg and not miss anything. And we didn't! Our amazing tour guide was very thorough. He took his time showing us all that we went to see. He pointed out little extras along the way, including a wonderful little place to buy a very inexpensive, very delicious lunch! The city itself was wonderful! I feel like we really got the full experience!

Excellent tour. Our guide Sabri was top notch. Very informative and fun tour guide. Very cool old town area, and the third Reich history was extremely interesting. I would recommend this tour.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

We would recommend this tour and is worth the price. We traveled from Munich to Nuremberg by train and then spent the day in Nuremberg seeing the sites, including lunch at a local cafe and returning to Munich in the early evening. Our tour guide, Sabri, was very professional and knowledgeable about the historical significance of the sites in Nuremberg. Unfortunately, there was a large event at the former Nazi marching grounds, so we were not able to see that. But this tour was very good and one we would recommend.
