Nuremberg Old Town Walking Tour

This is the ideal way to learn about Nuremberg’s history, and see its Old Town highlights. Having a guide means you will learn local secrets, historical information, and go to places that can only be accessed on foot. You’ll save time navigating and make the most of your trip—seeing Nuremberg Castle, St. Lawrence Church, Schöner Brunnen, and many other city attractions.

What to Expect

Your day begins by meeting your guide at a central location, and walking into Nuremberg’s Old Town. Along the way, you’ll see historic timber-framed houses, cobbled streets, and the scenic River Pegnitz. Your guide will enrich your experience by giving historical and cultural context to the things you see around you.

Next stop is Nuremberg Castle (Kaiserburg), where you’ll see the excellently preserved medieval architecture, and hear about the history of the Castle. After this, you’ll learn about the home of famous artist Albrecht Dürer, and also hear about Nuremberg’s association with the Third Reich.

Take a moment to admire the impressive spire of St Lawrence Church, before heading to Schöner Brunnen (a replica of a historic water feature).
The tour ends at Hauptmarkt—Nuremberg’s main market square (and the setting of the Christmas market), so you can continue to explore this area alone.

Fall Walking Tour Was Crowded

The walking tour included too many people and the site was filled with school groups. I did not learn or see as much as I thought I would. I enjoyed the sites but the tour per se was less than expected.

Great tour

Our guide avoided references to WWII. She answered questions, but did not dwell on that period of history. The focus was on the pre and post war Nuremberg. If you want WWII history take a different tour.

An excelente program

An excellent collection, the castle tells the story of the Germans and their fascination for the Romans, as well as telling the history of German science. Climbing the tower is also a great challenge. When we get there, we can see the whole city. Wonderful!
