This is one of the few places in old Nurnberg that was not destroyed by the bombing. In fact, it was the only house left standing. It is very interesting to see how wealthy people in Nurnberg. The audio tour is quite interesting, taking you back several generations. It is definitely worth a visit when you are in.Nurnberg/

This one starts on the top floor with a model of the city and description of the changes through the years. We heard it in German, but they probably can do it in English for you. Each of the lower floors follows one in habitant of the house and the history of the time. Very well done. There was a... More

This was our favorite tour. It starts in the attic of the home with a video that corresponds to a wooden model of the city. As each place is featured, it lights up on the model. Take the elevator to the 4th floor and then work your way down through the rooms. The story of the family is very interesting... More

located near the Hauptmarkt, this place is definitely worth a visit if you are in Nuremberg.It is value for money. It has a cool concept. It has a model of Nuremberg and it shows the history of the city when the light focuses on that part of the model. It projects the videos on the wall and you have the... More

Go there if you want to know the history of this town. Very detailed material and an unbelievable presentation of a model of the city in the last floor.

This is the city museum of Nuremberg and it is very well presented through the audio guide. The museum is housed in an old house that survived the bombing of WWII and the audio guide is narrated by the various historical figures who used to live in the house. Each person describes the rooms of the house and how they... More

This museum presents the history of the city, across ages. For us, it was a great starting point to understand better the rest of the sights, and place them in a real context. This sight can provide audio-guides in English with no additional fee required. The admission fee is 5 EUR but, being a municipal museum, for an extra 2.5... More

If you visit the museum you should definitely do the audio tour. It is very informative and makes the exhibits even more interesting. The story of the city and the house itself is told very well.

This museum provides the opportunity to both learn about the city and see inside the only original merchant's house that was left standing after WW2. Very good audio guide available in English. The photographic exhibition of the city both pre and post war was a real eye opener. The introductory film to explain the key buildings on the lovely hand... More
