11-Day Normandy to Nuremberg Tour

BBOB_Nuremberg_D11

Introduction

Our Normandy to Nuremberg Tour takes you from the landing beaches of D-Day through embattled Bastogne all the way to the propaganda nest of Nazi Germany: Nuremberg. We visit major locations of the Normandy Invasion; journey east to Belgium to learn about the Battle of the Bulge, Hitler’s last major counteroffensive in the west; then head into Germany itself. We explore Munich, the birthplace of the Nazi party; Dachau, where the Third Reich built the first concentration camp; finishing in Nuremberg, which was first the backdrop to massive party rallies then the grave of the National Socialist regime as the site of the war crime trials following World War II.
