Nuremberg Walking Tour is best at your own pace
My Nuremberg walking tour of the Old Town will introduce you to a place that was once the center of a powerful medieval imperial city. This prosperous city provided the ideal foundation for cultural and intellectual life and was a center of economic activity. Even today numerous buildings and monuments reflect its former place within the Holy Roman Empire of German Nation.
Why is Sigena important in Nuremberg's history? What is the significance of the seven little red clad men who appear on the front of the clock of Our Lady's Church at noon? How did obscure Nuremberg become the third largest city in the German empire? These questions, and many more, will be answered during this walking tour which offers a journey through Nuremberg's rise to greatness, providing historical background and insights in a fun and informative format. I'll also introduce you to Nuremberg's world famous lebkuchen and bratwurst.
Beginning at the Frauentorturm (across from the Grand Hotel), this Nuremberg walking tour will take us up to the castle via the former site of St. Klara monestary, Mauthalle, St. Lawrence Church, Nassauerhaus, Heilig-Geist-Spital, Chapel of Our Lady, Main Market Square, Beautiful Fountain, Fleischbrücke, Unschlitthaus, Weinstadel, Kettensteg, Tanners' Alley, Church of St. Sebald, and finally Tiergärtnertorplatz (Albrecht Dürer Haus) before going up to the castle. My Nuremberg Old Town tour ends outside of the Fembohaus which is Nuremberg's only remaining large late Renaissance merchant's house. Please visit Adventurous Miriam's blog for some great pictures of the sites you'll see on my tour.
This leisurely walking tour lasts 3 hours and is a leisurely, kid friendly, walking tour where YOU set the pace. Please don't forget to wear comfortable walking shoes.
