Discover the picturesque old town of Nuremberg, visit the house of the famous painter Albrecht Dürer and dare a deep insight into the era of German post-war history.
The historical old town with its mighty castle and old city walls, as well as churches, monuments and half-timber houses still portray the splendour of the former imperial city. Amble along paths previously trodden by emperors and streets where medieval Diets were held.
But that's not all: Nuremberg is also home to Germany's arguably most famous painter, Albrecht Dürer. The artist worked and lived in Nuremberg for almost twenty years. Follow in his footsteps and visit his house, the only artist's house dating back to the 16th century which is still intact in Northern Europe.
The darkest chapter in German history also cast a shadow over Nuremberg: Adolf Hitler turned Nuremberg into the city of the Nazi Party Rally and constructed monumental buildings here, driven by delusions of grandeur. After the end of the Second World War, the city found itself back in the limelight: major war criminals had to face an international military tribunal here in the Nuremberg Trials. On this day tour you will also visit the "NS Dokumentationszentrum" and the exhibition "Memorium Nürnberger Prozesse".
