Still find it hard to believe that 'remnants' of World War 2 still haunt us today. At least this place stands as a reminder that Justice will be served no matter how long it takes.

This is a bit of a walk from the centre of Nuremberg but completely worth it and an absolute must visit whilst in the city. The information boards are mainly in German so the audio guide is a necessity but, as at the 'Dokumentationszentrum Reichsparteitagsgelaende', they are fantastically done. There is so much information here that you will be here... More

Situated some distance from the centre of Nuremberg but easily accesssible by the metro, the Palace of Justice is a thought provoking and interesting place to visit. We went on a Saturday and were able to go into Courtroom 600 ( where the trials took place). As the courtroom is still used this may not always be possible. The audio... More

Well worth a visit but be prepared to stay longer than you expected and be aware this is not a "feel good" attraction but everyone should visit!

The courtroom 600 is on the second floor of the Palace building. It can be visited when no hearing is held there. Once in it one can't avoid having a mixed feeling of horror, owing to the abominable criminal offences committed by the Nazi indicted officers who were tried there, and relief, if the fact that justice was, in principle,...

On the floor above Courtroom 600 is an incredible exhibit and documentation from the trial itself. They have the actual bench on which the defendants sat and explain the charges and punishment given to each of the defendants. Also a lot of information on the American prosecutor, Mr. Jackson, about whom I knew little. Very informative and well displayed.

We had a visit of the courtroom with a guide who explained how the room was during the time of the trials. Not much has changed. There is also a display with photos of the room during the trial. It is worthwhile to go to the documentation center also.

The museum was fascinating - both interesting and informative. Not expensive and audio-guide is provided in English (and other languages). We were able to go into the Courtroom (often closed as still in use) - could sit in there and imagine the war crimes trials taking place. Easy to get to on the tram if you don't have your own...

Try to get a guided tour. The historical perspective and Historical significance is amazing. Current court room is smaller than during the Nuremberg trials since they removed a few walls then to accommodate the volume of people.
