See the magic of medieval times on a Nuremberg trip with The River Cruise Line. This excursion is a great addition to a Rhine cruise in Germany and an ideal way to ensure you don’t miss any of the highlights. After the second world war, the old town of Nuremberg was painstakingly rebuilt using the original stone of almost all the city’s main buildings. Today, it is very much a 21st century city with a unique medieval flair that attracts people from around the world who come to explore the treasures within the ancient city walls.
