Albrecht Dürer is one of my favorite artists and visiting the house in which he lived and worked was a treat for me. Audio sets are available with the price of admission and a docent dressed as the artist's wife is a nice touch. This is a wonderful little museum devoted to a great artist.

I seem to be rather fond of Albrecht Dürer who was famous for his etching and print making. This is the house where he lived in the North-west of the old town of Nuremberg. With the entry price you are given an audio set with a commentary on six rooms in the house, the commentary purportedly given by Dürer's wife.... More

You don't have to be knowledgeable about Renaissance art to appreciate this museum. The house itself is a star. Built in1420 and lived in by Durer from 1509 until his death in 1528, the scale of this house indicates a wealthy family resided here. It's one of the few surviving artists' houses from that era that remain in their original... More

Awesome to get into Dürers life by visiting his house! (However if you are not a fan or admirer of his work you might not like it...)

The Albrecht Durer House, seems like one of those places in Nuremberg that you stumble upon. It is in the square near the castle. I knew very little about Albrecht Durer except a few of his paintings. I decided to kill some time and pay for a tour. It is not a huge house and the tour does not take... More

It is just an old building owed previously by Durer. Audio guide is fun- kind of a story told by Durer/s wife. It is interesting story about how the life looked like those times. The house is rather empty, no furniture from the epoque and rebuilt few times so looks now a little different in comparison with the past. I... More

This was a highlight during our visit to old Nurnberg. Of course, we know Durer's paintings, etchings, etc. But we did not know much about his life and the audio tour is really quite interesting. This is a must visit on your tour of the old town.

I knew who Albrecht Durer was from seeing drawings in various museums, but never knew about his popularity until I visited his museum. So many artists don't become famous or popular during their life time, but Durer, with the help of a wife who knew how to market him, was truly a 15th century rock star, A really interesting story...
