Nuremberg Self-Guided Audio Tour

Summary

Your tour begins on the banks of the River Pegnitz at the Fleisch Bridge, a Late Renaissance stone bridge offering captivating city views. From here you will embark on a discovery of Nuremberg that offers a fascinating insight into the city’s treasure trove of stories and, sometimes dark, secrets. The tour is expertly written and designed by our team of historians and archaeologists and superbly narrated by recording artist Noah Kershishnik of Audible fame. Highlight One: Discover the Church of Our Lady, a sublime example of Gothic brick architecture. Many of its impressive array of sculptures have been significantly restored after the church was almost destroyed in the Second World War. Highlight Two: The need to rebuild was a fate shared by many of Nuremberg’s buildings including Altes Rathaus, or Old Town Hall where you will encounter an awe-inspiring rebuild of the hall’s spire as well as the monumental painted frescoes. Highlight Three: Explore the delightful Nuremberg Toy Museum, home to toys and miniatures from the middle ages to today. Highlight Four: Learn about the rich history of Nuremberg’s crowning glory that towers above the city: the colossal Nuremberg Castle.
