Classic Nuremberg Private Walking Tour
Tour Participation Requirements
Nuremberg has played a central role in Germany's history for centuries. From the soaring heights of the Holy Roman Empire to the darkest days of World War II, Nuremberg has persevered and emerged as a top cultural destination. Join this GoBe walking tour for an intimate exploration of Old Town Nuremberg and its historical treasures.
The city's religious history is especially rich, as you'll see during visits to the town's most important churches. St. Sebald Church is easily recognizable from its high twin steeples. Originally built in the 13th century, it has been a Lutheran church since the Protestant Reformation of the 1500s. St. Lorenz Church was likewise one of the first churches in Germany to become Lutheran. The Frauenkirche, Church of Our Lady, is famous for its delightful mechanical clock.
Dominating the skyline of Nuremberg is the massive castle, once an important seat of the Holy Roman Empire. Like much of the city destroyed by bombing during World War II, much of the castle has been historically reconstructed. Close by, the Old City Hall reflects Nuremberg's place as one of the key cities of the German Renaissance.
As you wind your way through the ancient streets, don't hesitate to ask questions, stop to look at interesting things, and even get a little lost with your guide. This is your chance to experience Nuremberg and make memories special to you that will last long after the tour concludes.
Devil in the details
One of Nuremberg's many claims to fame is the artist Albrecht Durer, born in the city in 1471. Perhaps his most enduring and perplexing image is an engraving of a knight in shining armor riding along stoically ignoring his unwelcome companions: Death, on his familiar pale horse, and a particularly gruesome Devil with the head of a goat. While this scene has been interpreted in many ways since its publication in 1513, the question remains: what inspired Durer's dark vision? Maybe his own struggles manifested themselves in Knight, Death, and the Devil.
