I'm Dorian, a 27 year old German born in Nuremberg. I lived in the city's region for almost all of my life. However, also I travelled a lot and that was when I realized how beautiful actually my home is. I started guiding Tours because I want to share my love for this town with people from all over the world. I found the "Nuremberg Free Walking Tours" in 2016. Today me and my colleague guides offer professional and passionate old-town tours in English, Spanish and German in the cities Nuremberg and Bamberg! We do what we do, because we love it and therefore are happy to being your Gurus in Nuremberg and in Bamberg!

Tour description

From 1933 to 1945 Adolf Hitler's Party ruled over Germany. In line with the earlier two "German" empires, the Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation and the German Empire, he wanted to build a third one, bigger, more successful, and more German than anything that was there before. He called it: The Third Empire, „das Dritte Reich". His dictatorship leads to Holocaust, World War II, and, after its end, to a whole new world order. 

Nuremberg played a major role in this tragedy as it was the Nazis’ ideological capital.

On our tour, we'll take you to the National Party Rally Grounds, „Das Reichsparteitagsgelände“, an enormous Propaganda-City that was planned and built to hold annual, week-long celebrations of the Party, Germany, and Nazi Ideology. In the sight of the remains of the Congress Hall and Zeppelin-Field, where hundreds of thousands were marching and hailing the dictator, you’ll understand, how and why Hitler’s Propaganda worked. 

We'll start in the old town, where you’ll learn about how the jewish community was deported to concentration camps, how our grandparents were hiding the bombs of ’45 in bunkers, and how they built Nuremberg up again after the War while the Nazi Leaders were convicted during the Nuremberg Trials. 

You’ll recognize us on the meeting point by our white and green umbrellas.

Die Tour war absolut hervorragend. Wir haben viel über Nürnberg im Dritten Reich erfahren und sind die wichtigsten Monumente auf dem ehemaligen Reichsparteitagsgelände abgelaufen. Neben den Bauwerken erfuhren wir über den Ablauf der Reichsparteitage, die Organisation, die Ideologie und den Krieg in Nürnberg. Auch die Nürnberger Prozesse wurden kurz erwähnt. Sehr spannende Führung.

Our guides name was Andres and he did an awesome job! We learnt so much during our trip and he was very friendly.

Excellent tour which covered the relevance of Nuremburg to the uprising of the Nazi regime in Germany, and an appropriate level of history and explanation around the significance of this to the events that unfolded. You also get to see a lot of the original structures that were put in place for the Nazi regime, although many of these have now been rightfully repurposed. Excellent tour by Andreas, but be prepared for a lot of walking!

Really great tour exploring the nazi rally grounds of Nuremberg. We took the tram as a group to go explore the sites and then returned as well. Lots of great information, anecdotes, and a very professional tour! Would definitely recommend!
