What You Can Expect
But it hasn’t always been so safe -- initially a beautiful medieval town and one of Germany's oldest Jewish communities, Nuremberg has been a center of politics for centuries. Learn about the city’s history of empires from your expert guide: often referred to as the unofficial birthplace and capital of the Holy Roman Empire, Nuremberg was also the preferred residence of German Emperors in the Middle Ages.
When Adolf Hitler came to power, Nuremberg became the heart of Nazi rule, home to the Nazi leaders and center of anti-Semitic propaganda. As you tour the city, discover how at the end of WWII the city became famous for the Nuremberg trials of Nazi officials for war crimes and against humanity.
Although bombed in WWII, the medieval city center’s buildings have been reconstructed and restored, replicating many medieval buildings using the original stones.
Visit the old town and grab lunch at any of the many restaurants (own expense) before seeing the main sights of Nuremberg with your guide, such as St Lorenz church, the romantic half-timbered houses in the castle quarter, the majestic Nuremberg Castle and the impressive 3-mile (5-km) historic city wall from the 15th century.
Should you visit Nuremberg between November 25th and December 24th, you may also visit the Nuremberg Christmas Markets (Christkindlesmarkt)! The Christmas Markets in Nuremberg feature nearly 200 beautiful wooden stalls decorated in red and white cloth and bearing handmade gifts and baked goods. Shop at leisure and sample the famous Nuremberg sausages before returning to Munich.
Ursula was a great guide and this day trip through Bavaria into Nuremberg was voth beautiful and thought-provoking. One must be prepared for the combination of quaint medieval town and a historical site/museum informing citizens on details surroinding the rise of the third reich. Unforgettable in both respects.
Amazing day in Nuremberg! Our guide was superb. She gave us historical information along the way. When we arrived, we were given a wonderful walking tour around the Old Town. We had free time to have lunch, see the churches and explore the shops. Then we traveled out to the stadium and visited the wonderful Documentation Center. I wish we had more time there. Overall, I would recommend this trip!
