Courtroom 600 is still a working courtroom. When we visited, there was a trial in progress, so the courtroom was closed to visitors. The exhibition itself is OK, but if you already have an understanding of the history, it's not worth your time. There are hardly any artifacts in the exhibition, just boards explaining the history of the trials. (in... More

It has great exposition. Of you went tothe documentation center then you must go to this one too. Is an after the second world war explanation. Says what happened to the Nazis and other events. You get audio guide with the 5 euros of entrance that you paid. It is very interesting and very detailed.

Our tour was just to view the outside where the Nuremberg trials were held after WWII. When we got home, we got the movie Judgement at Nuremberg to getmore information. Interesting that almost all of the people convicted were out of prison in less than 10 years even though their sentences were up to life.

If you are interested in Hitler's Germany this is a must see, like so many other areas in Nuremberg (e.g. Zeppelin field). This is the court room where they tried the Nazis e.g. Goering after the war.

We loved that you could listen to the description of the courthouse as you were sitting on the benches! Our family loved taking this historic trip.

We specifically arrived on a Saturday to enjoy the guided tour in English (only one a week?). It was just superb - the lady had a great feel for the group and knowledge and background that was as good as we have experienced - a truly wonderful tour. The museum itself is good , albeit small by comparison to many.... More

The site of the Nuremberg Trials after WW2, now a functioning courthouse with a museum, is an absolute must-see for anyone with even the slightest interest in history. The museum, which has discounted tickets for students, takes you through those tumultuous years in Europe (and also has a newer annex on the war in the Far East). If you come... More

The building, which still serves as a lawcourt today, is located outside the city centre, but easily reached by tram and bus. In room 600 the Nuremberg trials were held, with the venue previously having been enlarged to accomodate witness stands, press desks, interpreters and guards. Today it is back to its original size and appearance. But the importance of... More

We came to Nuremberg to learn more about the period of the rise of the Nazi Reich and what becoame of the people who were in charge during that period. The information supplied by the young gentleman who was our guide at the centre (in English) during the tour led by the exceptionally well informed young man who guided us,... More
