“Tour with an actress as Agnes Dürer: Recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2014

Dürer lived in a big house, he made money from his art, and did not lose them, partly due to his wife. This tour with an extremely vivid actress, who looked at us, speaking to us as Agnes Dürer. The house itself is ok, but with her it is memorable.

“A bit of history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2014

We loved it! Even if you are not familiar with the amazing work of Albrecht Dürer, you will not go wrong visiting this place. The house is small, but lets you explore both the artist's life and medieval life in general. Located, of course, in the historic center of the city and was allegedly not heavily damaged during WWII. Helpful and nice staff at the entrance.

“Great setting of local resident”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2014

The home is situated at the North entrance of the Old Town and lends to help the visitor image what life was like around 1500 AD. Such a gifted painter and skilled with publication techniques. I found the audio guide narrated by his "wife" to be a bit annoying, too much chatter.

“Tourism and art; can´t get better”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

We were walking around Nuremberg and surprisingly, got into Durer house. Durer house is a great documentation of a great artist. The house is beautifull just as most of the Nuremberg architecture. I loved the place as well as the city. I will be back to Nuremberg and Durer house.

“Very interesting place of history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2014

My wife and I visited this museum together and enjoyed it very much. We liked that we could proceed through the house at our own pace. We were also thankful that there was an English translation of the audio guide. It was very interesting to see the tools of the trade from that time period, as well as the areas were the art was created and some of the art itself.
