Nuremberg Private Walking Tour With A Professional Guide
If you are a history buff, you've come to the right place! Nuremberg, the second largest city of Bavaria, is so much more than Third Reich history, Nazi Trials and WWII memorabilia: from the undeclared capital of the Holy Roman Empire and the preferred residence of most German kings, to a magnet for famous artists like Albrecht Dürer and to a powerhouse in Germany’s industrial revolution in the 19th century, Nuremberg had them all. Even Martin Luther wrote about the city: ”shines throughout Germany like a sun among the moon and stars.” Join our walking tour to understand exactly why and how Nuremberg got this well deserved fame.Itinerary
