Visit the must-see sights of Nuremberg on a walking tour with a private guide at your side! This comprehensive private sightseeing tour offers a flexible itinerary that’s tailored to your interests. Explore Nuremberg’s Old Town to see attractions like the Imperial Castle and St Lawrence Church, and then visit the Nuremberg Nazi part rally grounds. Learn about the city during the days of the Third Reich (Nazi Germany) and hear about the famous Nuremberg trials while seeing sites like the Documentation Center, Congress Hall and Luitpold Arena.
Meet your private guide at your Nuremberg hotel, and stroll around the city’s Old Town, admiring the pretty timber-framed houses and cobblestone streets clustered around Nuremberg Castle and the Hauptmarkt – the bustling central square. As you walk your guide will talk to you about Nuremberg and also about the things that you want to see. The itinerary is tailored to your interests, so if there’s something you want to see more or less of, simply let your guide know! While walking, hear tales of the city’s past – from bygone days as a center of the Holy Roman Empire to its days under the dark spell of the Nazis during the Third Reich. Nuremberg’s architecture beckons to its layered history, too, and many examples of the city’s different architectural styles are covered on your tour. Admire St Lawrence Church – rebuilt after World War II – and pass Schöner Brunnen, a replica of a 14th-century water feature that aptly translates as the ‘beautiful fountain.’ Walk around the medieval city walls, stop for photos outside Albrecht Dürer House and stroll through Nuremberg Castle’s Imperial courtyards. After a break for lunch or a snack (own expense), board a public bus and travel to Nuremberg’s Nazi party rally grounds, a short journey away from the Old Town. Head inside and explore the grounds with your guide, seeing intriguing places like Luitpold Arena and the half-finished Congress Hall – a vast building that Hitler planned to use for party meetings. Gaze at the largest Third Reich buildings where Hitler inspected members of the Schutzstaffel (Nazi secret police), and then see where crowds once gathered on Great Street. You'll also visit the Documentation Center (own expense), the large on-site museum that exhibits information on key wartime and post-war events like the Nuremberg Trials. If you want to spend longer at the Documentation Center, then finish your tour inside and browse the exhibitions independently. Alternatively, return to your central Nuremberg hotel with your guide.
