Travel back in time on this walking tour through Medieval Nuremberg. Discover the myths and legends surrounding the city as you explore its historic streets and monuments.

Medieval Nuremberg Walking Tour Itinerary

After meeting in the emblematic Hauptmarkt, or main market square, you'll begin your walking tour around historic Nuremberg. Having admired the centuries-old buildings and the dramatic 14th century Gothic Cathedral around the square, you'll delve into the streets of the old town, heading towards the west of the city to uncover the secrets hiding around each corner.

Between cobbled streets and stone buildings, you'll discover the city's most feared trade: witchcraft. Return to the 17th century to relive the legendary witch trials, the historic solution to protecting the city from the devil! Ever heard of Dorothea Flock?

During your walking tour, your English-speaking guide will reveal the myths and legends of love, death and madness that shroud some of the city's most famous fountains. And you won't leave Nuremberg without hearing the story of the Flying Horseman

Learn about the different trades of Nuremberg's locals during the Middle Ages, and discover the cruel tasks carried out by the city's executioners and torturers. What's more, you'll hear about Gregor Mendel, a scientist considered to be the founder of modern genetics. Do you know how he's related to Nuremberg?

Finally, continuing to the old city walls, you'll reach Weissgerbergasse, the oldest street in the city, where your guide will tell you about Kaspar Hauser. Nicknamed the "orphan of Europe", no one knows how this dishevelled-looking child arrived in Nuremberg... many believe he was of royal descent!
