If you want to visit a good museum full of history in an mythic location, this one is the one. Good audit guide, good illustration, the real experience to understand why Nuremberg is Nuremberg.

Still an active courtroom today, the tour showcases the drama behind the most famous trials in world history: the divisions between the Allied Judges; the discoveries of the Holocaust's extent; and the swiftness of justice imposed against history's most infamous war criminals. Upstairs is a museum detailing the events. Note that some photos may be disturbing, so be prepared.

A must see if you are in Bavaria. The courthouse is also a museum which traces the history of the trials with photos, film and artifacts. There is parking around the museum but you have to look around. The courtroom is still in use and has been returned to its original state after it was modified for the trials. Standing... More

This was one of the most humbling and insightful routs that we have ever taken. More than well worth your time. A must to help us understand what happened in the past and what we can do now. I would go again.

Best accessed by train and then a four minute walk. The original court room cannot be accessed on week days as it is a working court still. Aim for Friday after lunch or weekends. Compare WW2 photos with the current day. The prison at the rear is visible from the upper floors and you can see where the old block... More

Court Room 600 is an historic place and should be visited when in this Bavarian city. Listen to your guide or read all the material about the trials yourself but save some time just to sit and take in the atmosphere. The courtroom is fairly small (actually smaller it was in 1947-48 because the press area has been removed) and... More

I have visited numerous places of historical significance in relation to WW1 and WW2 but I have to say this one is very surreal. To stand in the room and next to the dock where all that evil came together to stand trial was very strange. The court room has changed almost completely since the trials but the dock remains...

It's very surreal standing in courtroom 600 and know what happened there. It is well documented, by audio, both in the courtroom and on the third floor with various authentic pictures and true life films. You can spend a lot of time in this place if you follow the audio throughout the floors. Btw, if you bought a ticket at... More

The trial is recreated with great details by the exhibit in third floor. It is rather long that we spent totally almost three hrs, including the courtroom visit and the audio tour of the exhibit, but it is all worthy. the exhibit also includes outline of the Tokyo Trail which I have never seen anywhere else. In addition to facts... More

Surreal feeling to be in this Courtroom 600 knowing who was trialed here some 71 years ago. The audio guide us excellent and well worth the investment. Take time to just sit and ponder history and justice being concluded here. There is a break out museum area on level 3 which depicts the 21 individuals who were trialled. A tip... More
