Tour the extraordinary medieval walled city of Nuremburg on a guided walk. This was once the center of the Holy Roman Empire, cradle of the German Renaissance, temple city of the Third Reich, and home to the Nuremberg Nazi rallies and Nuremberg trials.
What to Expect
On this 4-hour tour an expert guide will take you to see Nuremberg’s Imperial Castle, where German Emperors ruled. See Gothic churches with awe-inspiring works by the most talented German artists in history, and the area where colorful markets have been held for nearly 700 years.
Take a break for lunch in the marketplace before boarding the bus for the former Nazi Party Rally Grounds. The largest Third Reich buildings left in the world still silently testify to the megalomania of a madman.
You'll see where stormtroopers paraded, and where Adolf Hitler personally inspected columns of SS men and performed pseudo-religious cult rituals before the saluting masses.
Learn how Nuremberg deals with this dark part of its past today. After the war, at the Nuremberg trials, many of these same men would finally face justice and the gallows before the eyes of the world.
The tour ends in front of the Third Reich Documentation Center Museum, which you might like to visit (entrance fee not included).
