Frankfurt: Full-Day Nuremberg and Rothenburg Tour

Experience Nuremberg, a city rich with wonders of cultural and historical significance. For centuries it was the preferred residence of German kings, and the undeclared capital of the Holy Roman Empire. You will then visit the 12th-century Imperial Castle built on a sandstone rock, offering great views over the roofs of the city. You will then descend the hill to the old town, where you can view the half-timbered house where the famous painter Albrecht Dürer once lived, now a museum dedicated to his masterpieces.

Your next stop will be Rothenburg, an enchanting Medieval city along the famous Romantic Road, an area possessing quintessentially German scenery. You can see the sights with a local guide, and stroll the web of streets lined by colorful higgledy-piggledy houses, a truly alluring place to discover before your return to modern Frankfurt.

Everything was exactly as promised. The pickup was on time, everything went exactly as promised. The visit is a story in itself, but so worth getting a reminder of how cruel we humans can be, so history never repeats itself. Travel time from Krakow is approx. 1h 15min and it takes approx. half an hour to move between Auschwitz and Birkenau. The guide on site was very good in English and very knowledgeable. Recommend.

Począwszy od komunikacji z biurem obsługi klienta, poprzez podróż w super komfortowym autokarze skończywszy na zwiedzaniu z przewodnikiem, który swoja wiedzą imponował wszystkim uczestnikom, oceniam tą atrakcję na 5*. Jestem pod ogromnym wrażeniem.

Notified in plenty of time when there was a slight change to our pick up time.

From start to finish everything went as I expected.

Perfectly organized, great driver, amazing guide :)
