Cruises to Nuremberg

About Nuremberg

Nuremberg, located 110 miles north of Munich, is the second-largest city in Bavaria, boasting a population of 500,000. Save for its significance during World War II, it doesn't always get the spotlight it deserves. Yet, once you set foot in the walled medieval Old Town, you'll realize what a treasure the city is, especially if you can snag one of its famous Lebkuchen, Christmas gingerbread cookies dating to the 13th century. Even better: If you're there during the holidays, you can visit Christkindlemarkt, the city's world-famous Christmas market.

Why go to Nuremberg?

Pros:

Visit the famous Christkindlemarkt Christmas market during the holiday season

Cons:

You'll have to take a bus from the port to get into town

Bottom Line:

Storybook sites abound in Nuremberg, home to a walled medieval Old Town

Getting Around?

Although the city lies on the Danube, your ship will dock in an area that's not conducive to walking into Old Town. Instead, you'll be bussed into Nuremberg, where you might walk around the Imperial Castle, an important palace of the Old Holy Roman Empire. The castle towers above the city, allowing panoramic views.

We loved Nuremberg. The tour was interesting and gave a quick overview of the history, including the 1930's Nazi and WWII connections to the area. The city has several universities and has great energy. Read More

Big city to wander around in. It's hard to find an excursion that was not related to WWII and the nazis. The free tour, Nuremberg through history does a good job focusing on the medieval side of the town.Read More
