Toy-Making to Nazi Rallies -- We toured one of Germany’s most renowned and intriguing cities on this excursion. We met our guide at our ship, then were driven by coach to the Old Town where we learned about Nuremberg’s complex past. This medieval city is still surrounded by 13th-century walls, with many gates and watchtowers still fully intact. It grew into a toy-making capital of Europe where craftsmen also shaped metal into inspiring sculpture and carved wood and other materials into decorative crafts. Afterward, we saw the Zepplin Field which were the grounds where Nazi rallies were staged for 100,000 cheering students. Later, we drove passed the Palace of Justice, and admired the Imperial Palace, one of Europe’s most formidable fortresses. Then we strolled down the castle hill past half-timbered houses and browsed the stalls at the Market Square. One of Europe’s most celebrated, it is famous for its gingerbread and its Gothic Schoner Brunnen, or Beautiful Fountain. Afterward, there was plenty of time to explore on our own here. We found a nice out of the way coffee house and relaxed.
