Nice way to pass an hour or so on a rainy day

This is an interesting stop. Get the earphones that describe the place. There is a lot of interesting history given. There is also a video shown.

We visited the Albrecht Durer House on our short stay in Nuremberg. What a beautiful half timber house right next to the city wall in the well preserved historical section of town which was not destroyed during the World War II bombing of the city. It's a shame that so much of the city was destroyed but a lot of... More

This is a good place to visit when it is wet. It is part old and part modern.The new part shows paintings and their history.The old part is interesting but is only furnished with things from that time,as nothing was left in the house.

If you don’t know the name, you’ll know at least one of his paintings. The pen and ink drawing of praying hands is probably his most famous piece, followed by the watercolour of a young hare. It was prints from his woodcuts that made him particular famous in his time, as it meant there were many copies produced. He was... More

The house is near the castle and is worth spending an hour in to get an insight into the life of a famous Nuremberg resident. A free audio guide explains each room and its significance as well as insight into the life of Albert Durech. Worth a visit

With all due respect, I wouldn't recommend this as an important site. The museum makes it clear that they had little to go on because Durer left no furnishings in the house. There was also no record of what rooms were used for what purpose. Still, the museum makes little effort to bring this house to life. There is little... More

right next to the Kaiserburg. The House was almost closed when we arrived so we took a very quick look. The House was not big. We received a small souvenir voucher from the front desk and got a postcard from the souvenir shop across the street.

An escape from city to another planet. Entrance fee is 5 euro and audio guide is free. You may also see copies of most famous paintings of durer in the hause.

Nurnberg has one rather-unknown artist and they brag about him as if it were Jesus... the museum is small and dissapointing. there are no original objects or decoration, so not much history either.
