Tour description

The free tour of the city is the best introduction to Nuremberg.
The goal is to get to know the old part of the city in such a way that, at the end of the tour, you will be able to feel like a true Nuremburger.
Nuremberg is a place of unparalleled beauty that hides many facts and stories for people who walk for the first time on its cobblestone streets. That is why the company of a local guide and advisor is necessary to get to know the imperial city better, know its history, walk its streets and not get lost in the network of Straßen, Gassen, Gässchen, Toren, Türme and Plätze... And to think that It is so easy to simply say “street” or “square”. The idea of ​​the tour is to know the main things about Nuremberg to know what the city is about and not die trying, from the origins of the main market, Hauptmarkt, to knowing what they give you when you order “Drei im Weggla” in any street food stall.

A tour of the old town of Nuremberg is like traveling through 1000 years of history, from its origins in the year 1050 to the present day. In the 20th century the city had a sad role as the city chosen by Hitler himself to hold the Nazi Party Congresses. We will also tell you why this was and why the Nuremberg Trials were held here.

Tour was good but the tour guide lost two of us when he left early, leaving two of us in a crowded town square before the glockenspiel stopped playing, with little warning. Very disappointing abrupt end to tour - I had to book another tour!

Victorio was a passionate guide. Our expectations were that the Second World War and associated issues would feature in this tour and while it was touched upon it was not in detail. However a strong chronological history of Nuremberg, with particular emphasis on medieval times was provided.
