What You Can Expect

Nuremberg Old Town Walking Tour

Stroll through the Old Town of Nuremberg!

Meet your guide in front of the Nuremberg Station, and then set off on your stroll around the city’s Old Town. The walled city straddles the River Pegnitz and its pretty streetscape – with tall, timber-framed houses and cobblestone streets – makes for a scenic amble.

While walking around Nuremberg Castle hear about the city’s past, learning about key events that took place on its streets. See sites where emperors were crowned and saints were buried, and then see where awe-inspiring works were painted at Albert Dürer House. Learn of the city’s dark Nazi legacy and hear tales of the chilling rallies that the city hosted during the days of the Third Reich.

Nuremberg’s architecture beckons to its layered history, too, and many examples of the city’s different architectural styles are covered on your tour. Admire St Lawrence Church – rebuilt after World War II – and then stop for photos in front of Schöner Brunnen, a replica of a 14th-century water feature that that aptly translates as the ‘beautiful fountain.’ Walk around the medieval city walls and stroll through Nuremberg Castle’s Imperial courtyards.

Your tour finishes in Hauptmarkt, the bustling central square that’s home to the annual Christkindlesmarkt. Hear of the world-famous Christmas market, which is held during the month of December, and then say your goodbyes to your guide.
