How to Spend 1 Day in Nuremberg

How to Spend 1 Day in Nuremberg

From its medieval Old Town to its bustling outdoor markets, Nuremberg attracts visitors for more than its history. Learn about the famous Nuremberg trials, but also explore the city’s contemporary side during a beer tour or a cooking class. Here are a few ways to spend 24 hours in Nuremberg. 

Morning: Get Your Bearings

Begin a visit to Nuremberg with an introduction to the city’s history. Join a walking tour that explores the medieval Old Town and learn about Nuremberg during the Third Reich. You’ll visit the Nazi Party Rally Grounds and see the Nuremberg Trial Courthouse, where the famous post–World War II trials were held. Hear stories about several other aspects of local history as well, from the city’s Roman roots to highlights of the German Renaissance, as you visit popular landmarks including Nuremberg Castle and St. Lawrence Church. Finally, go for a stroll along the River Pegnitz, and wander through an outdoor market. 

Afternoon: Taste Culinary Traditions

Devote your second day to Nuremberg’s culinary heritage with a food-themed tour. Join a local guide for a walking tour that features classic flavors from gingerbread to bratwurst. Opt for a tasting tour that visits restaurants and markets, or attend a cooking class and learn how to prepare traditional dishes yourself. Alternatively—especially if you’re traveling with kids—spend the afternoon exploring the Nuremberg Zoo. See penguins at play, watch polar bears being fed, get up close to a giraffe, and visit goats and sheep in the petting zoo. 

Night: Explore an Outdoor Market

Germany is world famous for its beer, so as the sun sets, turn your attention to various kinds of local brew during a drinks-focused tour. Some itineraries include classic pubs, while others also bring in World War II history to the guided stroll. Nuremberg is also known for its traditional Christmas market (Christkindlesmarkt). Travelers visiting during the holidays may want to join a tour that includes the market and a tasting of seasonal flavors such as mulled wine. Private tours are also available that can be customized to your interests.
