Hauptmarkt , Hauptmarkt, 90403 Nürnberg, Germany
After greeting your guide at a central location, you’ll embark on a relaxed stroll of Nuremberg’s old town. On this scenic amble, you’ll admire timber-framed houses, cobbled streets and the picturesque River Pegnitz.

Delve into Nuremburg’s history as you stroll around Nuremburg Castle (Kaiserburg): hear tales of emperors, saints and sinners and admire the elaborate, half-timbered façade of the Albrecht Dürer House. Additionally, you’ll learn of Nuremberg’s association with the Third Reich and the city’s Nazi history.  

Marvel at the spire of St Lawrence Church, a building that was almost demolished during World War II, and then capture photographs outside of Schöner Brunnen — a replica of a 14th-century water feature.

After strolling through Nuremburg Castle’s (Kaiserburg) imperial courtyards, immerse yourself in the bustling ambience of Hauptmarket — Nuremberg’s bustling central square — to learn about the world-famous Christmas market held there.

Here, bid your guide a fond farewell and continue exploring independently.

This tour was great, it was led by a man with a PhD in history so he really knew what he was talking about and he was able to answer all questions. When touring the old town he gave recommendations for food/wine/Lebkuchen and I had an excellent lunch at the restaurant he recommended. Then we went to Zeppelin field after the lunch break and we were given an in depth history of the Nazi rallies that took place there. It was very interesting and informative and I would recommend it to anyone.

We really enjoyed our walking tour of Old Town Nuremberg. Jason is a very knowledgeable and friendly guide. He made sure we had breaks if needed and that everyone was comfortable. We got a late start due to the train system, but Jason was careful to communicate with us very quickly about the delay. His German pronunciations and knowledge of the area inspire confidence. We would definitely book with this tour group again.

Josh did a wonderful job explaining the city's history and handling our large tour group. He maintained good pace and waited for any stragglers to catchup before speaking and was very cautious and friendly interacting with everyone. He had displays to illustrate his explanations.

this guide was very fun, but he was walking very fast. We barely managed to catch up with him. He did not wait to get together to start telling, but he only spoke to those who walked fast to him. The excursion is very good, but it is very tiring

Our tour guide was simply great. He told us where the entrances were to the churches and that a donation was requested so I was able to go back on my own to all three churches and enjoy them. I liked his lunch recommendation so much that I ended up eating there three days in a row! He gave me lots of information that made the rest of my stay in Nuremberg more enjoyable like showing me on the map where some of the other things to do were located and recommending spots for dinner. The tour was small too, only three of us plus our guide so it was very personal. Highlights of the tour for me were the castle and the clock on the square at noon. I decided to extend my trip and do the Rally grounds as well and was able to pay the difference in cash. This was a great walking tour. I would absolutely recommend it.
