How to Spend 2 Days in Nuremberg

How to Spend 2 Days in Nuremberg

Beyond its history as the site of famous World War II trials, Nuremberg has plenty to offer visitors. With two days in the Bavarian city, you’ll have time to join a local guide for a cooking class, explore the interiors of the medieval Imperial Palace, and try some German beer. Here are a few ways to spend 48 hours in Nuremberg. 

Day 1: Nuremberg History and Cuisine

**Morning:**Start your trip with an introduction to the history of Nuremberg during a walking tour. Join a guide for a stroll through the medieval Old Town, learning about the city’s Roman roots as you go. While hearing about the Third Reich and the trials held in Nuremberg after World War II, you’ll see infamous landmarks such as the Nazi Party Rally Grounds. 

**Afternoon:**When your appetite kicks in, it’s time for a food-themed tour. Choose between a culinary walking tour that visits several restaurants across the city and a cooking class that includes tips on how to prepare traditional German foods such as bratwurst. Be sure to taste local favorites such as gingerbread and red beer. 

**Night:**Discover Nuremberg after dark with a customized private tour. Your local guide will show you the city through their lens and take you to spots that are off most visitors’ radar. Share your interests and let your guide design a personalized tour that goes off the beaten path. 

Day 2: City Culture and Beer Culture

**Morning:**Take a cultural survey this morning, visiting the museums and landmarks that interest you most with the Nuremberg Card, which includes entry to all local attractions, including Albrecht Dürer´s House and the Imperial Palace. The pass also offers access to a range of transportation options, from buses and trams to the subway.

**Afternoon:**Continue your cultural explorations this afternoon, perhaps visiting the Nuremberg Transport Museum (DB Museum), Toy Museum (Spielzeugmuseum), or the National Germanic Arts and Culture Museum (Germanisches Nationalmuseum). Alternatively, especially if you have children in tow, explore the many landscapes of the Nuremberg Zoo.

**Night:**Spend your final evening in Nuremberg sipping traditional German beers during a tasting tour. Some itineraries combine World War II history with a walking tour that includes several classic pubs. If you’re visiting Nuremberg during the holiday season, be sure to stop by the city’s famous Christmas market and try the mulled wine.

Instead of taking a traditional tour of Nuremberg, pair up with a local guide for a private walking tour. It’s a new travel concept that’s more like exploring the city with a friend; before your private walking tour of Nuremberg, you’ll connect with the Lokafyer guide to chat about your interests. That means an experience that’s tailored to you, not a one-size-fits-all tour.
