small private tours are always the best way too go. There ended up being just the two of us, plus our fantastic guide, Sandra. We had a very memorable tour around one of the most fascinating cities I have visited. great history, fairy tale medieval old town with so much history. also let's not forget the Beer, wine and food! being a small group we were able to stop and look at things of interest or a pit stop for a beer and some local cuisine. Highly recommended and thanks to our wonderful Sandra who was full of knowledge and great fun to hang out with for a few hours. we have used these private tours in several different cities around the world and honestly one of the best things you can do on day 1.
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.
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.
The tour with Heinz was fantastic. A great overview and historical background of the Old City. He was very knowledgable and was happy to answer any questions. It was a fabulous introduction to Nurnberg!
