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.
The tour begins at the Frauentorturm (across from the Grand Hotel) and will take us up to the castle via the 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 in front of the New City Hall.

Customer Feedback & Reviews
My wife and I enjoyed spending an afternoon being led by Kevin through old town Nuremberg on his Nuremberg Old Town Walking Tour that proved to be a delightful learning experience as well as a scenic excursion. Kevin -- who originally came to the area while serving in the U.S. military, then subsequently married a local girl and settled nearby -- is not only a repository of knowledge about the history of Bavaria and Franconia, but has a storyteller's talent for recounting the historical highlights with a dash of humor that makes some of the otherwise dry facts more memorable. We especially appreciated his ability to tailor the presentation and to answer our questions in a manner that was readily comprehensible to a couple of retired American tourists. We highly recommend Kevin as a guide to anyone desiring a fun and informative tour of Nuremberg.

Kevin picked us up at the train station and showed us all the historic, cultural and fun sights. He also showed us a wonderful restaurant in the old town which offered the authentic Nuremberg sausages. Great meal! This Nuremberg Old Town Walking Tour was well worth the time and at a reasonable cost.

Kevin was an amazing guide! It was the perfect tour for our group of six as we were able to go at our own pace. Kevin REALLY knows his stuff and you can tell he is passionate about the history. We thoroughly enjoyed our Nuremberg Old Town Walking Tour. I enjoyed him so much that I booked him again when my family and I visit in December.
