Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour
Perfect for those who plan a longer stay in Munich and want to get to know the second biggest Bavarian city! Also, Nuremberg is steeped in history - so an absolute must for history fans!
What You Can Expect
On arrival, walk to the city’s Old Town and admire the pretty timber-framed houses and cobblestone streets clustered around Nuremberg Castle. Amble through the Hauptmarkt, the city’s bustling central square, and learn about Nuremberg’s past – from bygone days as a center of the Holy Roman Empire to its Third Reich days under the spell of the Nazis.
The city’s architecture beckons to its layered history, too, and many examples of Nuremberg’s different architectural styles are covered on your tour. Admire St Lawrence Church and pass Schöner Brunnen, a replica of a 14th-century water feature that 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 (own expense), continue your tour to Nuremberg Old Town by public transport, and then head inside the Nazi party rally grounds. See intriguing sites like Luitpold Arena, the half-finished Congress Hall and large Third Reich buildings where Hitler inspected members of the Schutzstaffel (Nazi secret police). Stop at Great Street to see where crowds once gathered, and then explore the Documentation Center (own expense) – an on-site museum that exhibits information on key wartime and post-war events like the Nuremberg Trials.
Return to Nuremberg station by public transport with your guide, and then hop aboard your train. Your day trip finishes at Munich Central Station or back at your hotel.
This was amazing - our guide Jason met us at our hotel and we went over what we would be interested in seeing and letting the expert also give us some ideas - this was well worth it.
Jason was extremely knowledgeable on the history of Nuremberg and we travelled at our own pace as it was just myself, my husband and Jason.
Would definitely recommend for lone travellers or small max 4 people groups so that the personal attention of the guide can be appreciated.
Excellent tour; we got exactly what we requested on our private tour. Guide very knowledgeable and accommodating to our informational and disability needs.
