Discover Nuremberg’s medieval walled Old Town as well as the infamous former Nazi Rally Grounds on this English-language tour. Enjoy views over the city from the Imperial Castle, where Holy Roman Emperors ruled. Explore Gothic churches with inspiring works by talented German artists, and see Third Reich buildings. Enjoy the Hauptmarkt where colorful markets have been held for nearly 700 years. Take in the seasonal markets or even the cozy Christmas markets in December. Get recommendations from your guide on where you can enjoy the best traditional food and beer in the city. After experiencing the Old Town, take a break for lunch in the marketplace before boarding a bus for the former Nazi Party Rally Grounds.

We really enjoyed this tour. The flexibility worked out perfect for us since we had our 7 month old teething baby with us so days and nights are a little off right now. And since it was snowing and pretty cold the day we went, I stayed in the car with our son while my wife hopped out where she wanted and snapped pics. We enjoyed learning the history of Nuremberg and loved that it gave directions to the next destination as well. All in all it was a great tour and a good experience so we did another audio tour like this in Salzburg.

The experience was particularly good, Jason did an excellent job taking us around the Rally Grounds and Nuremberg. Although the weather didn't help us to enjoy the tour more, Jason changed the order of the visits, which turned out to be a better option.

Our walking tour guide Elisabeth was great - very knowledgable, and personable. She was equipped with a notebook full of photographs, maps, and diagrams. Very informative. And she gave us more of her time than the fours promised.

Kevin is an excellent tour guide, very informative and engaging. It’s unbelievable, but he remembered everyone’s names! He is very passionate about history and makes it interesting to learn more!

This was a very well paced tour for a walking tour. I like how it ended with a trip to the Nazi rally ground. The walk through Old Town had stops to discuss places and their history.
