What to expect

Come on an Advent tour to Nuremberg and visit the Christkindles Market in the Bavarian toy making city, which is thought by many to be the most prestigious and atmospheric Christmas market in the world.

The Nuremberg Christkindles Market captivates with its unique and historical setting in front of the Church of Our Lady and still holds on to a lot of traditions such as the election of the Nuremberg Christmas Angel.

More than 180 merchants and crafts-people will make sure that you will not leave Nuremberg without a lovely souvenir, and of course you will also be pampered culinarily. Don't miss out on trying the original Nuremberg gingerbreads and almond biscuits along with your mulled wine on this Advent tour to Nuremberg!

By the way: We are also very willing to organize your advent season travel to Bavaria to other cities in Southern Germany, such as Munich or Augsburg. So please, feel free to ask us!

Itinerary

Detailed information for journey "Advent tour Nuremberg"

Basic package for your festive tour to Nuremberg:
5 days/4 nights

Day 1: Individual arrival to Nuremberg
OChristkindlesmarkt Nrnberg web c tourismus.nuernberg.de Uwe Niklasn the first day of your Advent tour to Nuremberg your guests will have the opportunity to explore Bavaria's second largest city on their own. Why not complete the day with a joint dinner at a traditional local restaurant? By the way: If you need a coach transfer from the airport to your hotel, we are happy to organise the coach hire for you! 

Day 2: Sightseeing tour Nuremberg

Today our tour guide will let you in on the secrets of Nuremberg's old town and castle on a city tour. Afterwards, there will be a visit to the gingerbread factory Lebkuchenbäckerei Schmidt. (You will get there either via your own bus or via an organized transfer). In the visitor hall you will be shown a 20-minute film on the production of gingerbread, followed by a look over the shoulders of a baker who is preparing gingerbread. Try some of the delicacies in an adjoining room together with a nice cup of coffee or, if requested, mulled wine.

The rest of the day is at your own disposal. So why not visit the Christmas market or one of the numerous museums of Nuremberg? We included a ticket for the Nuremberg Municipal Museums, such as the House of Albrecht Dürer, the Memorium Nuremberg Trials or the City Museum Fembohaus. 

Day 3: Individual programme or HistoryPLUS
For this day's programme of the Advemt tour to Nuremberg, you can either give your guests more free time to explore Nuremberg or plan a trip to the surrounding region. In order to get an idea about which sights in and around Nuremberg could be visited, you can have a look at our different PLUS packages. For instance, how about delving into Nuremberg's history with your group? You could do so by taking part in...

... a guided tour through the exhibition and Rally Grounds of the Documentation Centre Nazi Party
Even today, monumental structural remains of the former Nazi Party Rally Grounds in the south of Nuremberg testify to the delusions of grandeur of the Nazi regime. The permanent exhibition "Fascination and Violence", showcased on 1,300 square meters, deals with the causes, interrelations and consequences of the former Nazi tyranny.

... a guided tour around the Memorium Nuremberg Trials

The Memorium Nuremberg Trials informs visitors at the original location of the trials about their prior history, their progression and their repercussions. Selected objects such as parts of the original dock or historic sound and film documents convey a lively impression of the trials themselves. The Grand Criminal Chamber (Hall 600) remains a place of jurisdiction. On days without any hearings, the Chamber can be visited as part of a guided tour to the exhibition.

Day 4: BambergPLUS
Neue Residenz Bamberg web c AugustusToursToday, let’s enhance the programme of your Advent tour to Nuremberg with a trip for example to the city of Bamberg?

Bamberg City Tour
On an extensive walk around the city, you will experience yourself how unique Bamberg is. In the city's ensemble of historic buildings with the cathedral, churches and monasteries, with its bridges, narrow streets and squares, with its timbered houses and baroque facades, you will still be able to feel the allure of the past.

Guided tour around the New Residence, 45 minutes
The New Residence of the Prince Bishops of Bamberg was built from 1613 onwards. Visitors are able to marvel at stucco ceilings, furniture and tapestries of the 17th and 18th century in more than 40 pomp rooms. In the Imperial Hall, Melchior Steidl painted frescoes with sixteen larger than life emperor portraits. Aside from the electoral apartments and the prince bishop's apartments, the art gallery (a branch museum of the Bavarian state's art collection) with its early German and baroque paintings is especially worth seeing.

Day 5: Individual departure
After an eventful Advent tour to Nuremberg, your guests will be sent on their way home. Again, we are very happy to organize the transfer by bus to the train station or the airport of departure for your group.

This itinerary is only a suggestion for your next group tour which can be adjusted according to your desires. Whether you draw inspiration from the proposals made in this itinerary or blend them with your own ideas, the AugustusTours team looks forward to putting together your next Advent Tour.

Further information about our festive tours to Germany

Experience German Christmas magic!

The cold air fills with the scent of mulled wine and gingerbread, Christmas carols ring out across streets and squares… Advent is a wonderful time to visit Germany, especially during one of our festive tours to Germany! For a few enchanting weeks, German towns and villages show themselves from their most cosy and romantic side – offering you the opportunity to stroll through traditional Christmas markets and let yourself be charmed by their unique atmosphere.

The breaking of our bookings record for Advent, Christmas and New Year's tours seems to have become an annual event in recent years  and no trip is complete without a visit to one of Germany's oldest and most charming Christmas markets!

To whet your appetite:

  • The "Striezelmarkt" in Dresden
  • Leipzig Christmas Market
  • The "Christkindlesmarkt" in Nuremberg
  • The "Christkindlmarkt" in Munich

Our incoming service for groups to Germany

Dresden’s Striezelmarkt and Nuremberg’s Christkindlesmarkt are amongst Germany’s oldest and most celebrated Christmas markets, and make a great occasion for a club tour, company excursion or special interest holiday. Go on a festive tour to Germany with AugustusTours and experience festive cheer in Germany’s most beautiful cities!

More information about our festive tour suggestions

The smaller, alternative Christmas markets now established in many larger towns and cities are also gaining in popularity. When you're next in Germany for some festive cheer, why not try the romantic Advent market next to Dresden's famous Frauenkirche (Church of Our Lady) or the Mediaeval Christmas Market in Munich?!

It's well worth rounding off your tour with a trip out into the surrounding area. This is especially true in Dresden, where you are just a stone's throw away from the Ore Mountains a winter wonderland with a long tradition of hand-made candle holders (Schwibbögen), revolving pyramids and incense smokers (Räuchermännchen).

A visit to a gingerbread maker's in Pulsnitz or a stollen baker's in Dresden is always a tasty treat for your festive tour. If your journey takes you to Bavaria, why not enjoy its winter landscapes with an excursion to Neuschwanstein Castle or Garmisch-Partenkirchen.

Our portfolio also includes tours spread over Christmas and New Year's Eve, with many hotels offering special packages including a traditional Christmas menu or a gala dinner to see in the New Year. If you would like to take in an opera or a concert during your stay, we recommend Berlin, Dresden, Munich or a combination thereof!
