The comfortable way to Nuremberg in a day trip starting in Munich
Nuremberg is one of Germany's most beautiful and important cities, with the Imperial Castle on a sandstone hill, an intact medieval fortification, and a lovely, picturesque old town. As it is only a 1. 5-hour drive from Munich, this makes it the perfect day trip, with plenty of time to enjoy the city's flair, discover the highlights and focus on things you find of particular interest.
Besides several medieval emperors, Germany's most famous painter, Albrecht Dürer, also lived here and you can visit his home and workshop.
Before World War II, the Nazis held their annual party rallies in Nuremberg's outskirts. The grounds they designed for that are an optional stop on a private day tour, as well as the "Memorium Nuremberg Trials" where the Nazi-leaders were sentenced after the war.
Today Nuremberg is a lively modern city with a historic ambience, and with many things to do and see. I have put together an itinerary for a beautiful and informative day tour. . .
I pick you up at your hotel or wherever you want to start the tour in Munich (or at the MUC-airport)
After a 1. 5-hour drive, passing by the Hallertau hop growing area, Ingolstadt (Audi-City), and crossing the Danube River, we arrive in Nuremberg
Short stop to see the Nazi Party Rally Grounds
We park the car in the city center and start a guided walking tour (approx. 1 h) through Nuremberg's historic town, then up the little hill. . .
To the Imperial Palace with a great view over the city
It's time for a lunch break in a restaurant or at a bratwurst stall - as you prefer.
If you want, we can visit the Imperial Museum or Albrecht Dürer's House beneath the Castle
After another short walk through the old town, you will have time for shopping, another museum or a coffee break
At about 5pm we take off to Munich, so you will be back just in time for dinner.
Optional museums (please pick one or maximum two): Albrecht Dürer's House, Medieval Dungeons, Memorium Nuremberg Trials, Toy Museum, . . .

Thomas was at our hotel 10 minutes before the specified time. He was very courteous and easy to talk to. Our travel to Nuremberg was delightful and he took care to include my daughter in all aspects of the trip, sharing stories and knowledge of the areas we passed through. We had a wonderful tour of the underground beer storage facility used for shelters during WWII, a very nice lunch at a quaint restaurant, a nice jaunt through Nuremberg, a touching tour of Courtroom 600 and former Nazi rally grounds.
