About us

 

The Association of Nuremberg City Guides "Die Stadtführer e. V." has 121 members, who offer tours in 23 different languages: Walking tours of the Old Town, special themed tours, city coach tours, combination city tours by bus and on foot and excursions to the outskirts and the environs of Nuremberg.

In addition to their studies as historians, art historians, teachers, interpreters, etc., all of our members have completed a ca. two-year training program as certified city guides in Nuremberg.

Up to now 70 of our guides have taken part in the Certification Program of the German National Tourist Guide Association (BVGD) concluded by a final examination. They are entitled to wear the badge with the BVGD logo.

Since its founding in May 1996 the Nuremberg association has been a member of the BVGD. This umbrella Organization, founded in 1994, represents more than 200 cities and regions with about 6,000 guides. Membership in the BVGD also means membership in the European Federation of Tourist Guide Associations (FEG) and in the World Federation of Tourist Guide Associations (WFTGA).
