Highlights
  • Admire Nuremberg’s Old Town and see the Town Hall and Imperial Castle courtyards
  • Visit the bustling marketplace where world-famous Christmas markets are held in December
  • Step back in time at the former Nazi Party Rally Grounds
  • Learn about the dark history of the Third Reich and how the city deals with its past today
Full description
On this 4-hour tour an expert English-speaking guide will take you to see Nuremberg’s Imperial Castle, where German Emperors ruled. See Gothic churches with awe-inspiring works by the most talented German artists in history, and the area where colorful markets have been held for nearly 700 years. Take a break for lunch in the marketplace before boarding the bus for the former Nazi Party Rally Grounds. The largest Third Reich buildings left in the world still silently testify to the megalomania of a madman. You'll see where stormtroopers paraded, and where Adolf Hitler personally inspected columns of SS men and performed pseudo-religious cult rituals before the saluting masses. Learn how Nuremberg deals with this dark part of its past today. After the war, at the Nuremberg trials, many of these same men would finally face justice and the gallows before the eyes of the world. The tour ends in front of the Third Reich Documentation Center Museum, which you might like to visit (entrance fee not included).
Includes
  • English-speaking tour guide
  • Bus transportation to the former rally grounds
  • Lunch
  • Admission to the Documentation Center after the tour

Having spent three years in Germany and done similar tours of Munich & Berlin this was the perfect ending for our interest in WWII. Seeing the plans put in place at the Rally Grounds we felt the remaining structures gave you an idea of grandeur of the time. we also think the open space is the best use of the area now so that visitors and residents can enjoy the nature beauty within the city especially for events and concerts. Having seen the horrors of Dachau it was a fitting finale seeing how some of those involved met their demise.

We really enjoyed our tour of Nuremberg with our guide Natasha. The route took us from the main train station through the old town. We then caught a bus to the rally grounds. Natasha provided us with lots of interesting information as we went. The tour was quite fast paced and you have to be able to walk briskly to keep up, but we thought this was great. We were given a short break to get a snack and a few opportunities to use the bathroom.

Totally last minute choice for us but it couldn’t have been better. When they say “walking” you better be prepared but it was worth every mile. Achim was our tour guide. A great wealth of knowledge. Any question, he had an answer. Not some BS answer either. He is a well educated (masters in humanities/history) person. If I were to plan a group trip in the future, I’d try to get him solo. It was crazy how much he knew. If you’re booking solo and there is a restroom break offered... take it because there is a slight time crunch and there’s so much to see in a short time. It’s not fair to everyone else if you want to hold the group so you can use the restroom.
