Its hard to believe when you enter the courtroom that this is the place of the Nazi trials. So very interesting and thought provoking what went on to bring them to trial. We were part of a tour group on a river cruise so had no prob getting in, but do book ahead as you really have to see it.

We went to the Justizpalast on one of these gloomy rainy autumn days. The museum isn't very big, but it is amazing. Room 600, where some of the cruelest Nazi leaders were put to trial, is just so interesting; I thought, it was amazing that it is still used today. To sit there, listen to the audio guide explaining the... More

I would advise anyone who is in Nuremberg to make time to see this. I went on a Sunday and because courtroom 600 was not in use was able to sit in the room where the Nuremberg trials took place. The courtroom is on the second floor with the exhibition on the third floor. All the exhibits have German text... More

where you need to call ahead. Evidently the courtroom is still being used, so there is no use in showing up only to be told you can't see it. There is stuff to see without going to that room, but since that is the point I guess... And forget about asking if maybe since you showed up anyway can you... More

This was a very interesting stop for us in Nuremburg. English tours run daily at 2:00 pm and because it was the weekend, we were permitted entry to courtroom 600. Our guide John provided an extremely thought provoking one hour tour and it was more than a little chilling to be in the same room where so many top Nazis... More

For those who are interested in WWII history and especially the aftermath, this is a must see attraction. If you can arrive at around 2 pm then even better as there are normally guided tours around this time. You will get the opportunity to visit the room where the Nuremberg Trials took place and see where the Nazi war criminals... More

Part of our Viking River tour and an interesting stop although the documentation center was closed the day we visited. For anyone interested in history this is a lot like stepping back in time. Nuremberg itself in a very lovely typical German city.

From here not only can you know more about the Nuremburg trial but also the second world war from the Germans’ view (you won’t expect the Japanese to do the same). Could easily spend a whole day here, nice that they have seats for you while listening to the audio guide.

Went for a guided tour of WW2 in Nuremberg. As usual the guided tour was excellent. This started at the palace of justice where court room 600 is located. Then we went to the parade grounds and to the documentation centre located in the colosseum built during WW2. This building is massive as the display only took up a very... More
