Great, friendly female tour guide. We were a group of english speaking friends, so we were given audio guides, because the activity was held in german language, but we didn’t feel left out. The excursion lasted a bit more than an hour. Warm clothing is not a joke, really, dress properly so you wouldn’t freeze. Overall, it’s a nice activity, if you are visiting Nuremberg for the first time.

Sehr interessante Führung mit einprägsamen Infos (auch über Nürnberg). Der Herr, der Führung machte (Ralf Arnold) war sympathisch, hat gut auf Fragen geantwortet und sehr angenehm gesprochen. Wie fast überall, fällt die Ermäßigung für Studierende zu gering aus (nur 1,50€ weniger als der volle Preis. Um auch Studierende zu locken, sollte der ermäßigte Preis eventuell geringer ausfallen). Sonst alles super!
