Tour 1: Combination Nuremburg & Bamberg
Explore Nuremburg
Nuremburg is the second-largest city of the German federal state of Bavaria after its capital Munich. Some of you may have heard of the famous Christmas Market called ‘Christkindls Markt’; but there is so much more to Nuremburg aside from the Christmas Market.
Nuremburg is famous for its historical landmarks like the imperial castle and the walled Old Town. The location of the city made it an important commercial hub from the Middle Ages onwards, and this rich heritage can still be seen and felt today.

Local culinary specialties: sausage (Nuernberger Rostbratwurst) red beer (Rotbier) and gingerbread (Lebkuchen).

Visit UNESCO world heritage site Bamberg
Located over seven hills like another famous city, this Bavarian town is nicknamed the "Franconian Rome". Picture perfect around every corner, Bamberg has one of Europe’s largest intact medieval town centers which is an UNESCO World Heritage Site. Its winding narrow streets and half-timbered architecture are the holy grail of fairy tale Germany.
One of the highlights is the old town hall, which is precariously perched above the river Regnitz on its own island and connected to the rest of Bamberg by two bridges. Its unusual location is due to a dispute with the bishop where the townspeople were not allowed to build on the mainland, so they created a safe haven from which to rule their city.

Local culinary specialties: smoke beer
The city is known for its independent brewery scene and unique rauchbier (smoke beer). This is due to the unusual malting process where grains are smoked over a beechwood fire. Sample the beer at all nine of the traditional breweries to get a sense of Bamberg's distinct flavor. If that beer's strong smell and taste isn't your ding (thing), Bamberg breweries serve over 50 other types of beer.
