Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

What You Can Expect

Nuremberg Nazi Party Rally Grounds and Old Town Tour

Visit the Nazi party rally grounds on a tour!

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.

My family and I went on this tour in September 2017 and had a great time. We really enjoyed this method of getting to see both the old town of Nuremberg and the Nazi Party Rally Grounds/ Zeppelinfeld while also learning about the history of everything - which we wouldn't have been able to had we just walked around ourselves. Our tour guide, Achim, was very knowledgeable and willing to answer everyone's questions.

The tour doesn't leave you at the Documentation Center at the end - they bring you back to the city. So if you're wanting to go to the Documentation Center instead, just be aware that you'll have to pay for your own train tickets back downtown unless the tour guide can give you the passes they have I think ours were 3 EUR a person!.

Amazing tour with Archim who was incredibly knowledgeable and personable. I love going on city ours because I learn so much more than I would on my own, and Archim was exceptional. The tour starts at the main station and takes you through Old Town and up to the castle, then you break for lunch definitely get the Nuremburg bratwurst! before heading to the Nazi party rally grounds. Highly recommend this tour!
