Joachim's Nuremberg - A pre-Christmas treat

10 December 2020

6 days from £1,995pp

Travel to the heart of Germany and discover the fairytale architecture of Nuremberg. Wrap up warm and fill yourself with festive cheer as you experience a private organ recital at St Sebaldus, visit the Germanisches Nationalmuseum and explore charming countryside towns.
  • Experience the festive atmosphere in Nuremberg with a special organ recital at St Sebaldus
  • Enjoy visits to lesser known, yet splendid sights in the Franconian countryside such as Ansbach and Heilsbronn
  • Immerse yourself in the most comprehensive collection of German history at the Germanisches Nationalmuseum
  • Enjoy a private view of prints by Albrecht Dürer and contemporaries
For centuries Nuremberg was one of the greatest cities of the German Empire, situated at the crossroads between Hamburg and Venice, Paris and Prague, famous for its arts and crafts, and birthplace of Albrecht Dürer, Germany’s most famous artist. Luther claimed that “Nuremberg shines throughout Germany, like a sun among the moon and stars”. Sadly, the city’s WWII history – Nazi rallies and the trials of 1945-49 – has overshadowed much of its glorious past; indeed, it was the Nazi exploitation of Nuremberg’s patriotic significance which led to its destruction by Allied bombers. Notwithstanding great losses, Nuremberg features a wonderfully restored medieval old town overlooked by a grand castle, two magnificent parish churches brimming with late mediaeval and Renaissance works of art, and the Germanisches Nationalmuseum, an unparalleled collection of German art and culture. Moreover, the city’s 400 year old Christmas Market continues to retain its charm and traditional atmosphere with the air filled with aromas from scrumptious gingerbread, bratwurst and mulled wine.
