Nuremberg Day Trip
After meeting in Munich, you'll set off on your comfortable express train journey, which takes less than two hours to reach Nuremberg. Here you'll start your guided tour of the city's historic centre, where you'll hear all about the city's past: not only important in Nazi Germany, Nuremberg was a cultural centre under the German Empire and has many more stories to tell.
Wander through the charming Altstadt, or Old Town, which is divided in two by the Pegnitz River. Amongst its historical architecture, you'll get to admire the Imperial Castle from which German Emperors ruled, the spectacular Gothic churches home to important German works of art, and the lively markets which have taken place for almost 700 years. You'll have free time in Nuremberg to explore its picturesque sights at your own pace and have lunch (not included), and if you happen to visit during December, you'll see the city's famous Christmas market!
The tour will also take you to see the many reminders of the Nazi era, making a visit to the Nazi Party Rally Grounds, the largest Third Reich building left in the world, where your guide will reveal the details of the 20th century's most famous judicial proceedings, known as the Nuremberg Trials, most notable for their prosecution of those responsible for the Nazi crimes of World War II.
Having finished your tour, you'll head back to Munich, where you'll arrive back after approximately ten hours.
