Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

What You Can Expect

Private Tour: Nuremberg Nazi Party Rally Grounds and Old Town Tour

Admire St Lawrence Church in Nuremberg's Old Town!

This private tour begins with a hotel pickup in Nuremberg. Meet the guide for a 2-, 3- or 5-hour tour and then 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. 
After a lunch break (own expense and depending on length of tour chosen), head out 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.
This private tour is a customized experience, so be sure to include any specific requests and desired attractions to the guide at any time.
The tour concludes with a hotel drop-off in central Nuremberg.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2018

This was an amazing tour! Our tour guide was Achim and he was incredibly knowledgeable about Nuremberg's history. Achim told our group about the history of the city, funny anecdotes, and provided pictures of historical figures and Nuremburg at different points in history. He was very well prepared and could answer any question our group asked. The place Achim recommended for lunch was fantastic and we learned more about Nuremberg culture. He knew the ins and outs of the city's transportation system - busses, trolleys, and subways. Achim's tour of Nuremberg was my family's favorite part of our trip to Germany - highly recommend this tour for anyone visiting the city. Even history buffs will learn new things about Nuremberg's fascinating history.

My family really enjoyed the afternoon with Jason. He asked and listened to what we were most interested in doing. He was super knowledgeable and friendly. We saw the Courthouse and were able to go in the rally grounds and the documentation center. We only spent a brief amount of time in the Old Town, but that was our choice. Highly recommend the tour and Jason as the guide.

The tour was very interesting but didn't meet my requirement. I asked for an emphasis on the Nazi era with the old town being secondary. the tour started with the old town and did not leave enough time for the Nazi part.

I was unaware this was a 5 hr waling tour, so one member of our group had to sit out. 3 of us enjoyed everything we saw and the knowledge of our guide. If you like to walk this is a great tour!

Jason gave us a great private tour. He talked us through the history of Nuremberg, showed us the Nazi Rally grounds and then the Old Town with all the different churches and buildings. He accepted all questions and really catered the trip to our needs. We had 2 younger people and 2 senior people in our group, and everyone totally enjoyed the experience! I would definitely recommend this tour (and Jason) to others.

We enjoyed our tour of Nuremberg very much and thought our guide was good as well. It gave us a good overview of this city.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better August 2016

The guide was late to our tour due to the trains, which i can understand, but he then cut the tour to accommodate his train schedule without consulting with us. He seemed to know about the old town which was fine, but our main interest was in the nazi party rally grounds. He seemed to have limited knowledge about the rally grounds and when we asked a question he just repeated the same information with different context. Overall i was disappointed with the putcome of this tour and with the guide overall.
