Nuremberg Old Town and Nazi Party Rally Grounds Walking Tour

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    This tour begins in front of Nuremberg Central Station. Meet the guide and the rest of the tour group and roam through the city’s Old Town, admiring the beautiful timber-framed houses and cobblestone streets. Marvel at the massive City Walls of Old Town Nuremberg, which still run for approximately four kilometers. 

    Behind the walls, walk past the Craftsmen's Courtyard, where glass cutters, leather workers, gold and silversmiths, stained-glass painters and other artisans offer their wares for sale. See the gothic St. Lawrence Church, which was rebuilt after World War II; Nürnberger Christkindlesmarkt, Germany’s most famous Christmas market; plus Town Hall, German Renaissance artist Albrecht Dürer's house and the Imperial Castle courtyards, to name just some of the attractions.

    Along the way, learn about the history of this beautiful and prosperous city — as the center of the Holy Roman Empire, to the days of the German Renaissance, the Temple City of the Third Reich, and the home to both the Nazi rallies and Nuremberg Trials.

    See where German Emperors were crowned and where saints are buried. Find where the most famous and talented German artisans in history created their awe-inspiring works and where the colorful and lively markets have taken place for almost 700 years. 

    Then hop on the city’s public transportation (bus or train) to see the Nazi party rally grounds. Discover the Great Street, designed by architect Albert Speer to be the central axis of the rally grounds, and the half-finished Congress Hall of the Nazi Party, a building Hitler planned to use for party meetings. There’s also the largest Third Reich buildings, where Hitler inspected members of the SS, and the Documentation Center, a museum with exhibits on vital wartime and post-war events, like the Nuremberg Trials.

    Feel free to stay at the Documentation Center for a longer visit, or return to central Nuremberg to conclude the tour.

    It’s a lot of walking and standing but doable for almost anyone unless you really have mobility issues (I have chronic pain / fibromyalgia and it was painful but manageable). Tour guide (I believe his name was Kevin) was friendly and knowledgeable. I couldn’t really...More

    Be in a good shape for this one, as it requires walking over steep terrain. Although the second half also uses public transportation (tickets included). Our guide, Natasha, while not native (she’s from Scotland, but was easy to understand ;) was very informative.

    Because the first half of the tour is walking the old city and the castle, you probably wont make it to the rally grounds until about 14h 30.

    No, I believe you have to buy a ticket to see the inside of the castle.
