Full description
Enjoy an English-speaking 2-hour guided walk in a beautiful and prosperous medieval walled city. Nuremberg has been a center of the Holy Roman Empire, cradle of the German Renaissance, temple city of the Third Reich, and home to both the Nuremberg Nazi rallies and Nuremberg trials. Your guide will show you where German Emperors were crowned, where saints are buried, where the most famous and talented German artisans in history created awe-inspiring works, and where colorful and lively markets have taken place for nearly 7 centuries. Explore the enchanting Old Town that features fantastic regional food and drink and the greatest Christmas Market in Germany. Although the Christmas Market is held in December, Christmas shopping is available throughout the year. Nuremberg is the perfect city for a walking tour. Most of the Old Town is a pedestrian zone, and the tour is conducted at an easy pace.

    This is a well-paced walking tour.

    Well informed guide from Australia. Just enough time at each historical site. No steps but a steep climb to the castle. If you want to tour the castle, skip the last 15 minutes of the tour or you’ll be making the steep climb to the castle twice as the tour ends down the hill in the town. Great tour, good info and well-priced.
