Courtroom has changed greatly since the trial. Very difficult to find as not sign posted well (i suspect a sign had been covered up with a "go home Nazis" banner). Glad i went as i am a history buff but enjoyed other things more in Nuremberg.

The Justizpalast provides an excellent history of the Nuremberg trials. Sitting in the actual courtroom where Goering and the other Nazi war criminals were tried and convicted was surreal. I highly recommend visiting stopping here if you are in Nuremberg - it was a very memorable place to visit. This added even further dimension to our tour of the Dachau... More

To learn first hand the history of how the court of international military justice was set up, the hundreds of legal and other professionals needed to. Run such a complicated legal system. A must visit

My husband and I read a book about the trials before we visited; we also had a friend with us who knew very little about them. We were able to visit the courtroom before the exhibition. The exhibition was amazing - it had enough to keep those who had just read a lot about the trial interested, and was very... More

Courtroom 600 is not always open so be prepared for that. Price stays the same. The exhibition is an audio tour. You walk up to pictures/ screens and type the number in and listen to the audio. You can chose what you listen to. Very interesting parts- especially the details of those convicted and the excerpts from the nazi meetings.... More

Plenty to read here to tell this important story and with a good audio guide in various languages but surprisingly very few artefacts to view. The view down into the courtroom was stunning.

Went at Christmas market time. Museum has later hours, which is nice. Parking is a bit confusing. The courthouse still functions in law, so it's not that exciting, but the museum is good. Would recommend the tour

This courthouse is not to be missed if you are intrigued by historic sites related to WWII and The Holocaust. The actual Courtroom 600, where the Nuremberg Trials took place, is open most days to tour. Your guide or hotel concierge can call ahead to ensure you have access to this particular room. There are film clips with English translations... More

The pictures and recordings made us feel that we were back in 1945. This is a don't miss if you are in Nuremberg.
