What To Expect

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.

Traveller Tips


This tour is meant to give you a taste of Nuremberg, but not to spend too much time in one place.
My only complaint is that it was difficult to hear the guide at times, and I believe headphones would have been a nice addition so that you could always hear and follow along at your own pace.
If he just did the Nazi Rally Grounds tour he could perhaps go a bit slower and not have everyone racing to catch him up.

Nuremberg walking tour.
Brad_J, Aug 2022
Mat, was a great guide and had a lot of neat facts and information for our tour. He was also very personable and made our day enjoyable even with the extremely hot conditions. I would recommend this tour to learn more about Nuremberg.
Worth it!
Kalie_B, July 2022
Natasha was fantastic! She was clear and easy to hear, and provided fantastic information that really made the tour more engaging. The information was really interesting and overall great value for the money spent.
interesting but be prepared to do a lot of walking
EDMUND_T, July 2022
tour guide was very knowledgeable about the history of Nuremberg and the Nazi party. This tour could actually be a 2 day event.
Wonderful
Caryn_S, May 2022
Fantastic tour guide- already love learning about the history of places we visit and our guy made it even more fun. Had a break for lunch and got great recommendations on places to eat. Easy to meet and get around. Definitely bring your walking shoes/water if touring on a warmer day.
Good tour to take to learn about the history of Nuremberg
Irene_M, Dec 2021
The tour was very informative. We had an excellent guide who knew his history in fact he has a masters in history. A good tour of the Old Town Nuremberg with a break for lunch and then off to the Nazi Party Grounds. We received a lot of information and were glad we took the tour and would recommend it. Our guide also recommended a place to buy good local wine, lebkuchen, and a really good place to get Nuremberg sausages.
Jason is a great tour...
James_W, Nov 2021
Jason is a great tour guide. He is knowledgeable, friendly, takes and answers questions, and even tries to include everyone in the group. We had fifteen people, covered many, many stops and never felt like we annoyed him. He is an American living in Germany so he has an unbiased view of the local history. He could share multiple versions of the stories and let us decide which one to choose. We would highly recommend his tours.
One day in Nuremberg
Bonita_F, Sept 2021
What a great way to view the city. Jason was our tour guide and he gave us a good account of the city’s history while walking us at a pace that all could keep up with.

Knew about history, less about people
Jeremy A, Nov 2019
Chris knew his stuff when it came to history but lacked the rather simple nuances that comes with guiding a group.
Great tour
jam47, Oct 2019
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.
Good intro walking tour of Nuremberg
Joshua S, Oct 2019
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.

Book it. Now.
Patrick L, Oct 2019
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.
Fantastic Trip
Xiao C, Aug 2019
Kevin is fantastic and very knowledgeable about Nuremberg and the historic facts. We enjoyed his humor and the trip very much.
A great insight into the history of the Germany
Vacationer104027, Aug 2019
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.
Great history lesson!
Ron_P, July 2019
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.
