Nuremberg Nazi Party Rally Grounds and Old Town Tour
From US$25.49
Visit the magnificent, medieval city of Nuremberg, Germany — featuring a trip to the Nazi party rally grounds — on this guided, 4-hour sightseeing tour. Learn about the history of the city, from the days of the Holy Roman Empire to the German Renaissance, Third Reich, Nazi rallies and Nuremberg Trials. See German Renaissance artist Albrecht Dürer's house, the Imperial Castle courtyards, plus Town Hall, gothic St. Lawrence Church, bustling Craftsmen’s Courtyard and much more. Public transportation to and from the Nazi party rally grounds is included.
What to Expect
This tour begins in front of Nuremberg Central Station. Meet the guide and the rest of the tour group and 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. 

Then hop on the city’s public transportation (bus or train) 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.

Feel free to stay at the Documentation Center for a longer visit, or return to central Nuremberg to conclude the tour.

Fantastic Lesson in History

A must see if you are in the area. A very valuable history lesson. Many people just do not realize just how powerful Hitler was in WW II. Seeing the Rally’s ground was a site to remember especially the place where Hitler stood and spoke....More

Old 7 interesting

The old town tour was very interesting & informative but the when I was at the Hilter's rally point where he gave his speech in 1939 & felt ill at ease. Knowing the horrors he perpetrated on the Jews made me feel really uncomfortable.

Our group was around 20 so if you book 2 smaller groups (6 + 6 ) it should be ok. I know our guide (Chris ) has now moved to Scotland.

Don't believe there is an afternoon tour. Our tour group actually started in Munich to Nuremberg so it was just the one offered every few days
