Overview

Travel to Nuremburg by train on a full-day trip to one of Germany's most beautiful cities. Enjoy a fully-guided visit of the city, as well as an optional visit to the Documentation Center on this rail tour from Munich. Nuremberg is a beautiful, old city with a vibrant history. This was where the Third Reich strutted in all of its pomp against an epic backdrop of grandiose marching grounds. It was also where an international war crimes tribunal later held that same Nazi leadership to account amidst the rubble of the defeated city.

Highlights

  • Day trip (destination A to B)
  • Explore the local streets on a walking tour of the city
  • Informative, friendly and professional guide

Know More about this tour

The locations of the iconic scenes captured in films such as Triumph of the Will - the rally grounds where Hitler addressed his multitudes, the astonishing Congress Hall, the entire region designed as a "new Rome" by the architect Albert Speer - are still largely intact. We'll take you there and tell you the story.

You'll also see the other Nuremberg that locals are rightly proud of. The medieval fortifications of the striking old town, Gothic churches, colorful market places and hilltop castle of the old imperial city are as awe-inspiring today as ever.

Nuremberg hosted the Imperial Diet (or parliament) of the Holy Roman Empire and was nominated an Imperial Free City by the Emperor Frederick II. It was a center of cultural vitality at the center of major imperial trade routes. It played a key role in the Reformation, and in the printing and scientific revolutions that shaped the modern world. It was home to one of Germany's oldest Jewish communities.

The old rally grounds today host a major Documentation Center that maps all of this painful history in detailed clarity and represents evidence of Nuremberg's determination to come to terms with its past.

Our expert English-speaking guide will accompany you on the pleasant 1.5 hour train journey from Munich and back again, giving you a comprehensive tour through this unique city.

    I just returned from our day tour of Nuremberg. Our tour guide was Chris and he was full of information and very pleasant. The tour started on time and Chris went out of his way to show us as many of the historical places. We were not scheduled to go to the courthouse on this tour but because it was a young group and we were moving fairly quickly so we took a group vote and shorten lunch to half an hour and did it all. There is lots to see in Nuremberg so I would suggest that you would require more than a day to really see everything. It is an easy 2-hour train ride from Munich. Well worth the visit

    The tour was relaxing and a really interesting but freezing day. The long history of Nuremburg being a highlight. The guide was great, I cannot remember his name other than he was Algerian French. A really cool guy, informative and friendly, he did well in keeping an eye on quite a large group and making sure everyone was together.

    Our tour guide Akim was very well informed and a wealth of information. Although there was a lot of walking it was worth it. The additional information as incredable and the tour was well worth it.
    On word of advice make sure you have a significent breakfast before leaving the train station. You will need it . Great tour and would do ir again.

    There have been some complaints about this tour which had me concerned. But we had no reason to be, we traveled on 12/23 one of the busiest commuting days due to the Christmas market. Our guide had no issues keeping the group of 20+ together. We had a wonderful tour of Nuremberg, learning about the vast history and had the option to skip the rally grounds for more time at the market which we exercised. We had a smooth meet up at the train station and then departure back to Munich. Wonderful excursion!!

    Immediately we were told by our guide that it was going to be a rough tour. It was a Saturday and the Christmas markets were expected to be packed. We started in Munich with 21 people then once we arrived added about 20 more people to the tour. We were herded around the city like sheep being told to hurry and take photos and that we’d only have 3-4 minutes per stop. Even though I’m a fast walker it was very hard to keep up with the guide who was holding an unopened umbrella rushing through the streets, barely stopping to see if we were all still together. The worst part was that we almost missed our train back to Munich. The last part of the tour was to take a bus, then a train, then walk to the Nazi party rally grounds. It was unbearably cold and windy and our guide didn’t even explain what we were viewing. He would just stop and hold up some photos and basically lecture us about the Nazi party. We made it back to the train station with 3 minutes to spare before the train left. Overall, I wish I had just taken the train myself to Nürnberg. This was a waste of time and money. We were promised time on our own for lunch and we didn’t even get that. Our guide suggested some take away sausage sandwiches that were barely filling so we could move on to the other sites quicker. Would not recommend this tour to anyone. What a let down because the Salzburg tour I took with the same tour was incredible.

    Chris was fantastic guide. Very noligable. He did go a little fast for some people. But was very good at pausing for everyone to catch up and he did not start talking until everyone could hear him. That was great for everyone.

    We had Chris as our guide and he was AWESOME! The tour is an all day adventure with travel to Nuremberg by train. Once in Nuremberg we visited to historical part of the city, including the Nazi Party Rally Grounds. Visiting this site was quite emotional. Chris is a historical researcher so he provided a lot of information, probably more than the average guide. We had free time for both lunch and shopping. Highly recommend this tour!

    Great review of the city’s history...would have liked to linger longer at some sites but time was limited in order to cover it all. The nazi rally grounds were well presented as Chris our guide did a good job of describing events that had taken place . Again, wished we had been able to see more. A worthwhile overview. Definitely saw more than if we had tried to cover Nuremberg ourselves in one day.

  • 14-Oct-2019

    The tour guide was very informative and had lots of energy which was needed for this walking tour. Not a tour for those out of shape but well worth it if you are in shape. The Nazi Party Rally grounds were especially interesting helping to bring some reality to the images of the past. A very sobering experience.

    Mat was an AWESOME tour guide....very easy to understand and had a great thorough explanation of everything we were seeing and the history of the area
    My only complaint was there wasn't enough "alone to wander" time in Nuremburg. Lunch/wander time was only about 30 minutes.
    I would definitely recommend going on this tour to see the sights and hear about the history.
