Experience Nuremberg

Explore the Old Town at your leisure

Nuremberg has lots of sights and museums just waiting to be discovered: the well called the ‘Beautiful Fountain’, the Church of Our Lady, with its famous moving mechanical figures, the Imperial Castle towering above the city, or the site of the Nuremberg Rallies. Many of the sights – 36 of them, to be precise – are on the number 36 bus route. Hop on and join the tour!

The Number 36 Sightseeing Line

Travel across the whole city and discover 36 of Nuremberg’s sights, great and small, along the way – on the 36 bus. On its daily route from Plärrer to the Documentation Centre, the bus passes many places that passengers – be they visitors or locals – can reach quickly and easily on foot from the many stops. You can find the complete route of the 36 line in this flyer.


Sightseeing tour of Nuremberg in a historical tram

How would you like to see Nuremberg from a different perspective? Then take a guided city tour in our more than 50-year-old tram. This tour with a difference takes you past historical and modern sights, with expert guidance provided by the Society of Nuremberg Tour Guides.

The tour takes place every Monday morning from May to September, leaving from the Hauptbahnhof tram stop at 10 o’clock. Lasting two hours, the tour first takes you to the south, past the Meistersingerhalle concert hall and the Luitpoldhain park. It ends with a walk from Tiergärtnertor to the market square, just in time to admire the daily procession of mechanical figures below the clock of the Church of Our Lady at 12 o’clock sharp.

Glühwein tour

Equally popular among locals and tourists in the pre-Christmas season, our “Glühwein” tours are themed on German-style mulled wine.

Enjoy mulled wine with “Elisenlebkuchen”, a premium gingerbread speciality typical of Nuremberg, on a special city tour in a historical tram. The tour takes you round Nuremberg’s Old Town, along past the medieval city walls and the Imperial Castle and into what was once Nuremberg’s industrial heartland in the south of the city. During the tour, a conductor will inform you about the city’s history and tell you stories about the various sights on either side of the route. Our Glühwein tours take place each day from Wednesday to Sunday during the pre-Christmas season.
