Even if you're not a big fan of the artist Albrecht Durer, it's worth going to his home to see the lifestyle of the hometown hero in the late 1400's and early 1500's. You'll see his art and the architecture of that era. Very much...More

A gem of a museum with a great collection of very well interpreted art. Audio guides work well and are very informative. Well worth the time! Tip: We purchased the "combined ticket" and went to the Toy Museum after lunch.

I'm not sure how great the museum is, but the area is very picturesque with lots of bridges. It's worth taking a walk over them. Photos and more info at etbtravelphotography.

After visiting the imperial palace this was just down the hill and easy access. We spent 90 minutes going through the self guided tour with the headsets that are included in the price of the admission.

Kind of bordered on the spiritual ... being in the house where this leader of the Northern Renaissance lived and worked. Wow! The amazing stories about the building and Durer's live were fascinating (eg. petty bureaucrats and 'facilities'). When we were there, there was an...More

This was a lovely museum that captured Durer's life and artistry. He is one of my favorite artists so going here was a much while we were in Nuremberg. I'm so glad we did as it was well worth it.
