Tour description provided by Viator

Discover Nuremberg, a city as aesthetically pleasing as it is historically interesting! On your full-day trip from Frankfurt, you'll visit Nuremberg's Old Town before exploring top Nuremberg attractions, like Nuremberg Castle or the Germanic National Museum, at leisure.

While traveling by luxury coach from Frankfurt, your expert guide will give you an insight into the city of Nuremberg in Bavaria, Germany. Hear about the city's complex history, from the burden of its Nazi legacies and the Nuremburg Trials to its fame throughout the ages as a European trade and commerce center.

On arrival into Nuremberg, you'll be greeted by the sight of a vibrant city that's as colorful as its past, with distinctive red-roofed buildings stretching around the Imperial Nuremberg Castle (Kaiserburg). You'll enjoy a walking tour around Nuremberg's Old Town to see the original city walls and the Castle Quarter with its unique, timber-framed houses.

The remaining itinerary on your Nuremberg day trip will be determined by your guide on the day, depending on the group's overall preferences. However, sights you may visit include the popular Germanic National Museum or Nuremberg Castle, either of which you'll explore independently at leisure.

Should you be lucky enough to be on Nuremberg day trip between November 25 and December 24, you will also visit the Nuremberg Christmas Markets (Christkindlesmarkt). The Christmas Markets in Nuremberg feature nearly 200 beautiful wooden stalls, decked out in red and white cloth, bearing handmade gifts and baked goods. You'll have time to shop at leisure and sample the famous Nuremberg sausages before returning to Frankfurt.
