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.

The weather was chilly, but Jason did a great job reviewing the history of the city and answering questions. He skillfully handled even trickier history questions.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2016

First of all, the booking choice and process of 4 consecutive day-trips via Viator was easy and convenient. Having read the previous reviews, all the guides seemed to have a very good knowledge of the history and professional in conducting the tour, so was ours. Excellent guide Jason, very informative and makes the visit a great tour experience and also great value for the cost on a beautiful sunny December day.

Sabri is an excellent guide. He provided so much information about the city, the people, the culture and the economy effortlessly! He tried to accommodate everyone's interests into the trip and provided clear details about meeting places, landmarks, history of the city, and the transportation we were taking. I loved this trip because of his guidance...

It was easily the best part of my trip in Germany! Our guide was terrific. As someone mostly interested in WWII history, I thoroughly enjoyed it.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2015

The train round-trips between Munich and Nuremberg were comfortable. The guide was well-informed and made our visit interesting. The walking tour around the old city, and then on past the cathedral and market, and up the hill to the castle-fortress, was very good. I even enjoyed the Nuremberrg-style grilled bratwurst with mustard, in a bread roll, for lunch!
