This is a favourite place of mine in Nuernberg - I enjoy walking through the small rooms looking at furniture and paintings so delicate and so detailed that they could be mistaken for photographic images. It's a museum in a private house with all the paraphernalia of life around you. It's a good place to take children to give them... More

We were pleasantly suprised with the exhibited art shown. But because of school tours it was quit busy inside.

Albrecht Durer's house is a wonderful museum and an excellent example of Nurnberg architecture. Situated at the foot of the Imperial Castle, the house is surrounded by structures as Durer would have seen them. Entrance is 5 euros for adults and 3 euros for students. The house features a reconstructed printing press based on a design by Durer. The operator... More

I took the audio tour. I enjoyed the commentary but there was work being done and two rooms closed to visitors. While I found the narrative on his life interesting that was all. For original works you must go to the German National Museum.

The audio tour was a nice way to hear about Durer and the house. Not much there related to Durer but the history was a pleasant break.

Not much in here. We were handed free audio guides and made our way around the house. The gentleman on reception was an extremely helpful man who spoke fluent Russian. Unfortunately and to me despairingly, none of the art on display was original. All the paintings were well copied replicas. Then the furniture in the house itself did not date... More

The house tour was just so, so, but they had an antique litho printing press on the third floor where the visitors could actually make their own prints. We brought our print home and are thrilled.

This is a really charming little house, in classical Bayern style, and with fantastic Italian murano glass windows ;) It's important to remember that it is the place where Albrecht Durer LIVED, but not the museum of his pictures! I liked the way the audio-guide presented the story - through Durer's wife voice ;) To my mind, it's much better... More
