Know More about this tour

Board a first-class, luxury coach in Munich and drive 106 miles (approx. 169 km) north along the Rhine and Danube Rivers for an unforgettable day trip to Nuremberg. Listen as your knowledgeable guide reveals stories of Bavaria's second largest city, which now ranks among the world's safest towns.

But it hasnt always been so safe -- initially a beautiful medieval town and one of Germany's oldest Jewish communities, Nuremberg has been a center of politics for centuries. Learn about the citys history of empires from your expert guide: often referred to as the unofficial birthplace and capital of the Holy Roman Empire, Nuremberg was also the preferred residence of German Emperors in the Middle Ages.

When Adolf Hitler came to power, Nuremberg became the heart of Nazi rule, home to the Nazi leaders and center of anti-Semitic propaganda. As you tour the city, discover how at the end of WWII the city became famous for the Nuremberg trials of Nazi officials for war crimes and against humanity.

Although bombed in WWII, the medieval city centers buildings have been reconstructed and restored, replicating many medieval buildings using the original stones.

Visit the old town and grab lunch at any of the many restaurants (own expense) before seeing the main sights of Nuremberg with your guide, such as St Lorenz church, the romantic half-timbered houses in the castle quarter, the majestic Nuremberg Castle and the impressive 3-mile (5-km) historic city wall from the 15th century.

Should you visit Nuremberg between November 25th and December 24th, you may also visit the Nuremberg Christmas Markets (Christkindlesmarkt)! The Christmas Markets in Nuremberg feature nearly 200 beautiful wooden stalls decorated in red and white cloth and bearing handmade gifts and baked goods. Shop at leisure and sample the famous Nuremberg sausages before returning to Munich.

    It was a long but nice day as we took a bus to Nuremberg, walked around the old city (short guided tour to get our bearings and recommendations given, then time on our own exploring), followed by a trip to Palace of Justice to the place where the war crimes against Nazis were held (top floor is an exhibit, the actual courtroom wasn't available that day due to a court case, which they said was common on Thursdays) and then we drove to where Hitler held his Nazi rallies in Zeppelin park.

    Really enjoyed our tour hosted by Monika. The information on history and the region was spectacular. The true history of the 3rd Reich was stunning in a scary way. I do appreciate the history is kept alive so hopefully the mistakes of this enormity are not repeated. The food and culture is worth experiencing.

    Good host and guide. The walking tour was a little much so would recommend telling the tour goers where you will meet if you don't want to take the hike up the hill. Glad we did it, but did need to rest up after.

    I enjoyed this trip, it was interesting to see Nuremberg where some of Hitler's rallies took place. The Historical Day trip was very good, walking around Nuremberg and finding out about its history. The fortress is well worth a visit, you can see the miles away from it.

    Excellent and friendly guide - interesting and varied tour. Nuremberg is a beautiful place to visit - highly recommended.

    This was a great tour - a long day but worth it. Our guide Franziska was very informative. We visited the place where Hitler rallied his faithful followers and then on to the Documentation Centre which was very interesting, but there was not really enough time to see it all. The bus then took us to the Nuremburgs Old town where we stopped for a quick bite then went on a big walking tour right round the town, seeing some amazing old architecture, bridges and finally up the hill to Nuremberg Castle for an amazing view of the town below. I really enjoyed this tour, the only negative being we did not get any free time for a bit of shopping/exploring.
