From Munich: Nuremberg Day Trip by Train

1. From Munich: Nuremberg Day Trip by Train

In Nuremberg the Third Reich strutted in all of its pomp in the city’s grandiose marching grounds, and years later an international war crimes tribunal held that same Nazi leadership accountable for its actions. There is much more to see here, however. This is an old and beautiful city with a rich and vibrant history. You’ll see the massive medieval fortifications of the striking old town, magnificent gothic churches, colorful marketplaces, and the hilltop castle of the old imperial city. Your expert guide will accompany you on the 90-minute train journey from and to Munich, and provide a comprehensive tour through Nuremburg. The city’s history is fascinating. It was the unofficial capital of the First Reich, or the first Germanic Empire, which dominated central Europe for a thousand years. It was here that the Imperial Diet of the Holy Roman Empire was hosted. It was a center of cultural and intellectual vitality at the crossroads of major imperial trade routes. Nuremburg also played a key role in the Reformation, and in the printing and scientific revolutions that shaped the modern world.

This tour had just the right balance between the city of Nurnberg and it’s history and then in the afternoon learning about things associated with Hitler and the third Reich. Our guide Achim was absolutely amazing with a PhD in history! We would highly recommend this tour and thoroughly enjoyed it but with a disclaimer that it is quite a bit of walking. We rode the train, a city bus and a shuttle and it was all very well planned.

The tour was very informative. Bernd guided us safely through the Nuremberg highlights. You get a great impression of the city by bike. Bernd adapted perfectly to our pace. He knew the answers to all the questions we asked him. We highly recommend The Tour
