Why Travelers Choose This Tour

In just two hours, this express group tour covers both the history and sights of Nuremberg Old Town.
After greeting your guide at a central location, you’ll embark on a relaxed stroll of Nuremberg’s old town. On this scenic amble, you’ll admire timber-framed houses, cobbled streets and the picturesque River Pegnitz.

Delve into Nuremburg’s history as you stroll around Nuremburg Castle (Kaiserburg): hear tales of emperors, saints and sinners and admire the elaborate, half-timbered façade of the Albrecht Dürer House. Additionally, you’ll learn of Nuremberg’s association with the Third Reich and the city’s Nazi history.  

Marvel at the spire of St Lawrence Church, a building that was almost demolished during World War II, and then capture photographs outside of Schöner Brunnen — a replica of a 14th-century water feature.

After strolling through Nuremburg Castle’s (Kaiserburg) imperial courtyards, immerse yourself in the bustling ambience of Hauptmarket — Nuremberg’s bustling central square — to learn about the world-famous Christmas market held there.

Here, bid your guide a fond farewell and continue exploring independently.

Josh did a wonderful job explaining the city's history and handling our large tour group. He maintained good pace and waited for any stragglers to catchup before speaking and was very cautious and friendly interacting with everyone. He had displays to illustrate his explanations.

this guide was very fun, but he was walking very fast. We barely managed to catch up with him. He did not wait to get together to start telling, but he only spoke to those who walked fast to him. The excursion is very good, but it is very tiring

The guide was pleasant but the lack of depth in history was apparent. His explanation of the Holy Roman Empire was "it's complicated". I abandoned early.
