Hmm...we can’t seem to find this place. Please check the spelling, or choose another location.

Tour can begin at hotel, train station or other central location.
This private tour begins with a hotel pickup in Nuremberg. Meet the guide for you 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 the 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.

Learn Nuremberg with Natasha

4 hour tour was perfect for first timers in Nuremberg. We stayed in Old Stadt so it was very convenient to everything. Natasha was full of energy, knowledgeable and passionate on the topics. I I recommend this to all who love history.

Make Nuremberg come to life through its deep history

First I have to say that Jason was extremely patient and kind because we were late arriving in Nuremberg from Regensburg - so he was waiting at our Hotel as we got situated and began our tour. My son is studying Theology and Jason is an historian so they hit it off swell and had interesting conversations. He was very knowledgeable and incredibly personable - his relaxed demeanor made the walking tour intimate, relaxed and enjoyable- he even slipped in info about Regensburg that brought to light what we had seen the day before. He even pointed us to the BEST sausage sandwich I’ve had in two weeks traveling!! 🥰 Regensburg sausage! The Nazi grounds were so fascinating and the sensitive subject was perfectly presented with honor. Then we wind up back at the center of town and received tips for dinner and drinks after. Truly enjoyable and mind blowing day!

Natasha is a great guide, and we felt very comfortable with her. We took a 3-hour tour because of time constraints, but I strongly recommend taking 4 hours. There is so much to learn.

My 25 year old daughter and I did the Nuremberg 4 hour private tour with Natasha. As we were staying in Rothenburg ob der Tauber, we took the train to Nuremberg and met our guide at the station. Natasha was wonderful, and Nurnberg is a lovely town! She took our time with us, showed us the old town first, then we had a leisurely lunch (entirely up to you - quick take away lunch, but I prefer a sit down with Nurnberger sausage and beer), before heading to the Nazi Rally Grounds. Those are something to see - you can just picture Hitler standing there on the podium and it's quite eerie. We definitely went over the four hours, but Natasha was quite happy to take her time with us. After we got back to the train station, she helped us book our tickets back to Rothenburg, which took a bit of time. She felt more like a friend than a tour guide and we really appreciated her! I'll probably be doing private tours from now on!

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.

Tiana_P

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.

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.
