Your day begins by meeting your guide at a central location. You’ll head to Nuremberg’s Old Town, admiring historic timber-framed houses, cobbled streets, and the scenic River Pegnitz along the way. Your guide enriches your experience by providing historical and cultural context about each sight. Next stop is Nuremberg Castle (Kaiserburg), where you’ll hear about its history and see the excellently preserved medieval architecture. You’ll also learn about the home of famous artist Albrecht Dürer, and gain an understanding of Nuremberg’s association with the Third Reich. Take a moment to admire the impressive spire of St. Lawrence Church, before heading to Schoner Brunnen (a replica of a historic water feature). The tour ends at Hauptbahnhof—Nuremberg’s central train station—where you can continue to explore on your own.
