The area infront of this house is very nice with restaurants close by. Visiting this house is a very nice experience as one could go back in Albrecht Durer's time and his works

My daughter (age 8) was fascinated by this house and really enjoyed looking round it and the art work. It also kept my 5 year old occupied. Pleasant staff.

Very close to the castle, this is the place where one of the greatest artists of the last millennium lived and worked. This alone makes it a must-see on your list of Nurnberg sights. The area around the Durer House is also quite picturesque, and invites for a little stroll.

Albrecht Dürer is one of the most famous German painters, and a visit to this house-museum gives a good overview of how and why, in fact, Dürer has become a truly cult personality. Though the paintings you see now in the house are copies of original Dürer's works, there are several interactive screens that allow you to know more about... More

Albrecht Dürer is one of Nuremberg's most famous inhabitants, and this house is where he lived for the last twenty years of his life. It houses an exhibition devoted to the great artist, although as far as I could tell it displays nothing actually produced by him. Even the building itself is a reconstruction. It includes an interesting room dealing... More

As something to see this was fine, wasn't overly expensive and some interesting sections. The building was interesting to see the old interior architecture, maybe more could have been done to show reproductions of his work and methods. Wasn't disappointing but wasn't enthralling either.

I walked around the city and I saw this place near by The kaiserburg. It is so great architecture and Japanese can't see such as it as usual. I hear the museum is included but I didn't visit. You can also see the statue of Albrecht Durer on near.

After the bombings of the second world war only 10% of Nuremberg remained undamaged, the Durer House is part of that 10%. You can only visit some of the rooms but they give a very good idea of life of a fairly well-to-do family in the 16th century. You also learn about Dürer as an artist and his era and... More

Albrecht Dürer genius influenced many Renaissane era painters who's works great European museums like the Louvre, Uffizi and London's Natl Gallery...600 year old half-timbered house is an excellent example of technology, nice museum and gift shop.

Albrecht Dürer = Renaissance. He influenced many great painters in Italy. Original works are displayed in Uffizi, Florence; National Gallery, London; Musée du Louvre, Paris etc. Here just copies, but it more than enough to see his genius. Family price were just 10 Euros. Also, it is nice to see house from XV century. Now, the best thing. They have... More
