What You Can Expect

Nuremberg Third Reich and Roman Empire Historical Day Trip

Nuremberg Third Reich and Roman Empire Historical Day Trip

Board a first-class, luxury coach in Munich and drive 106 miles (approx. 169 km) north along the Rhine and Danube Rivers for an unforgettable day trip to Nuremberg. Listen as your knowledgeable guide reveals stories of Bavaria's second largest city, which now ranks among the world's safest towns.

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.
