Facinating, to see all the old pictures and then actually stand there where it took place. They also have a audio tour of the courtroom and then a exhibition upstairs. Real enjoyed the Courthouse, lots of History.

Kudos to Germany for presenting this historical and thought provoking experience. I found the detail that has gone into this exhibition very confronting, emotional and educational. Highly recommend any tourist passing through Nuremberg to visit this place and spend hours there walking around and listening to the audio.

The exhibition is perfectly designed and very emotional and rational at the same time. It's difficult to arrange a visit since the court house is not always open (the court room is still in use), we first tried and was closed, the next day it was open. After the exhibition we enter the court room.

We visited the Palace of Justice in Nuremberg on a Sunday afternoon and were able to enter Courtroom 600. While we missed the English-guided tour which takes place on Saturday afternoons, just being in the actual room where the Nuremberg trials were held was both moving and strangely fulfilling from a learning standpoint. Our three teens, each with their own... More

View the interior courtroom where the Nuremberg War Crimes trial took place. Guided tour is recommended.

In the Trial Courthouse you can enter into room 600 where the Nuremberg trials were held, which for any historian or lawyer is a dream come true. The exhibition on the third floor is extremely rich, the audioguides that are provided at no additional cost, provide even more information. We spent around hour and a half and we skipped some...

This is one of the must sees when you come to Germany especially if you are in the Nuremberg area. The main court house is quick to spot and the court used for the Nazi trials is just next door. If you can, get a person to explain the actual court room and how it all went. We came in... More

This important historical building is a must-see for anyone interested in WWII Germany. There is a permanent exhibition as well as the opportunity to go inside courtroom 600. The exhibition is in German, but you can get an English audio-guide or take the English tour which is at 2pm on Saturday. The information is concise and accessible - even if... More

The visit to Courtroom 600 with an audio guide for information, was a satisfying experience. It was informative, but satisfying because it felt good to know that the a just trial law tied the noose round the necks of few of the most horrible criminals in the history of humanity. The permanent exhibition on the floor above is also terrific.... More

I was lucky that Courtroom 600 was not being used at the time of my visit. Even though the layout is much changed, some of the decoration is exactly as it was in 1945. It is quite moving to play the audio visual display where the events actually took place.
