The locations of iconic scenes captured in films such as Triumph of the Will – the rally grounds where Hitler addresses the crowds, the astonishing Congress Palace, the entire area designed as a “new Rome” by the architect Albert Speer – are still largely intact. We will take you there and tell you the story.

You will also see the other side of Nuremberg, of which the inhabitants are rightly proud. The ancient city's stunning medieval fortifications, Gothic churches, colorful market squares and hilltop castle of the former imperial city are now grander than ever.

Nuremberg hosted the Imperial Diet (or Parliament) of the Holy Roman Empire and was named a Free Imperial City by Emperor Frederick II. It was a center of cultural vitality at the center of the great imperial trade routes. He played a key role in the Reformation, and in the printing and scientific revolutions that shaped the modern world. It is home to one of Germany's oldest Jewish communities.


The old motifs now have an important center of documentation that encompasses this painful history in clear detail and constitutes proof of Nuremberg's determination to come to terms with its past.
