Returns to original departure point
This tour begins in front of Nuremberg Central Station. Meet the guide and the rest of the tour group and roam through the city’s Old Town, admiring the beautiful timber-framed houses and cobblestone streets. Marvel at the massive City Walls of Old Town Nuremberg, which still run for approximately four kilometers. 

Behind the walls, walk past the Craftsmen's Courtyard, where glass cutters, leather workers, gold and silversmiths, stained-glass painters and other artisans offer their wares for sale. See the gothic St. Lawrence Church, which was rebuilt after World War II; Nürnberger Christkindlesmarkt, Germany’s most famous Christmas market; plus Town Hall, German Renaissance artist Albrecht Dürer's house and the Imperial Castle courtyards, to name just some of the attractions.

Along the way, learn about the history of this beautiful and prosperous city — as the center of the Holy Roman Empire, to the days of the German Renaissance, the Temple City of the Third Reich, and the home to both the Nazi rallies and Nuremberg Trials.

See where German Emperors were crowned and where saints are buried. Find where the most famous and talented German artisans in history created their awe-inspiring works and where the colorful and lively markets have taken place for almost 700 years. 

Then hop on the city’s public transportation (bus or train) to see the Nazi party rally grounds. Discover the Great Street, designed by architect Albert Speer to be the central axis of the rally grounds, and the half-finished Congress Hall of the Nazi Party, a building Hitler planned to use for party meetings. There’s also the largest Third Reich buildings, where Hitler inspected members of the SS, and the Documentation Center, a museum with exhibits on vital wartime and post-war events, like the Nuremberg Trials.

Feel free to stay at the Documentation Center for a longer visit, or return to central Nuremberg to conclude the tour.

We had a great tour with our knowledgeable and funny guide, Kevin from Ireland. He was so good at explaining the history of Nuremberg and the Holy Roman Empire and relating it forward to Hitler and the Nazis. He was also full of facts about Germany and Bavaria. The tour has lots of walking but we had a lunch break where we chose a cafe to sit inside. Others chose to get sausage on a bun from the outdoor market. Highly recommend this tour.

This tour is meant to give you a taste of Nuremberg, but not to spend too much time in one place. The pace felt a bit rushed, however if your intent is to get the lay of the land and not worry about any sightseeing at any of the places you are walking by, then this is for you.

If you are at all interested in medieval history, military history in general, or WW2, this tour is for you. While no four hour tour could ever be said to be ALL encompassing, I think this is the most information you could ever fit in a half day. The guide Natasha presented it in a clear, and at appropriate times, funny or somber manner. I feel her knowledge of that city’s history pays respect to the terrible—and wonderful— things that happened there. She truly made it come alive. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, but above all, you’ll be thankful, I think. Thankful that the arc of human history bends towards justice. Thankful that she was able to open up one of earths great cities to you. As a practical matter, she was also very accommodating and kept the tour going at a good pace. Seriously. Don’t skip this one.

Nuremberg Old Town is a fascinating historic location. The tour guide provided interesting information about the town, the buildings and their significance. The Nazi Party Rally Grounds was a site that I have wanted to visit for many years after seeing a number of documentaries on its purpose and the rallies that were conducted there, under Hiltler. There is very little left of the actual total structure and grounds, but you can still imagine what it was like in its day. You need to jump on the internet and look at some of the images that were captured during the rallies and the almost unimaginable crowds of citizens and soldiers that attended the rallies. The tour guide again provided some very interesting information regarded its design and structure. After being bombed and almost totally destroyed (including destruction that we were told was done by Germans), Germany has left it as it is. It still sent a shiver down my spine, when I imagined the horrrific events that followed those rallies.

Thoroughly enjoyed this tour of Nuremberg. Our guide, Chris was great. Extremely knowledgeable. It was an easy walk, even uphill as we stopped in the shade for more info. I highly recommend this tour - for all ages.
