This was my number two destination in Nurnberg... the first being where the Nazi rallies were held.
The court house is not in central Nurnberg but if you go to the tourist information point across the road from the hauptbahnhof, train station then they will happily provide you with a free map, sell you an underground ticket and tell you how to get there.
I was disappointed that there was an entry charge for this museum as they say that the world should learn from the events that were judged at this court? so surely it should be free of charge??
there are audio guides which are included in the costs but most of the exhibits also have information written in english and german.
we couldn´t visit the court room at first as it is still in use for trials. luckily before we left, the lady at the desk informed us that it had just been opened and we could go and see it after all. it was quite creepy and weird to be in a place that you recognise straight away as you have seen it so many times on the television.
be careful how you enter. there is a prison next door and for some strange reason we ended up at the wrong door and were behind a family with visitor passes LOL - I wondered why we were getting strange looks from the guard at the door (funny story for the future though I suppose).
Be prepared to spend a few hours there - and grab one of the chairs that are available if you want to sit and read the exhibition and watch the films.
