If you have time you can go and have a look at this XX Century building complex, but there are more beautiful and interesting things in Nuremberg.

Definitely worth a short trip on the U-Bahn out of the centre, only took about 7 or 8 minutes from Hauptbahnhof. If you go on the weekend, it's possible to go into the courtroom that was used during the Nuremberg trials, but during the week this may be closed to the public. Really interesting history and look into how the... More

The Nuremberg Trials helped us to begin to close the curtains on one of the world's most difficult times. The court room is still actively used so we were not able to go in, however our city tour guide was outstanding in explain the trial. I was fortunate to have known one of the judges who presided over the trials.... More

We had a fantastic guided tour in English. Learnt a lot . It's best to go on the week end as courts are operational, and you might not get to see the room no. 600. The display of the information is very good.

Made our way out here on the Underground, but walked 5 minutes in the wrong direction before turning back and finding the 'Palace'. Unfortunately wasn't open on a Tuesday so couldn't gain access. Little information provided so never got to see inside other than a garden area.

Individually or with a tour group, this is a must see. The building is known for the famous nurnberg trials, the justice center for Bavarian rule in nurnberg. Behind the palace of justice is the prison where a few of the third Reich party were condemned or executed!

Interesting and excellent exhibition on the Nuremberg Trials. You can see and go in the Court Room when not in use. Check its opening hours before you visit. Exhibition was great and spent hours there.

I used to love history in school but this is for serious history buff. If people coming here hoping for an attraction, it's not the place for it as you pretty much would be looking at an empty courthouse. However, even for me, it was a moving experience and a worthwhile visit. It provoked so much thoughts and I wanted... More

Visited with a friend who is a WW2 enthusiast. Very interesting and educational and is one of the top Nuremberg tourist attractions Bargain €5 entrance fee makes it well worth a visit. An eye opener for those like me who are not well educated in the history.

Glad we did this site. It is always moving to actually visit sites that have a pivotal place in history. We spent close to 2 hours here on a Sunday morning. The audio guide was good but a little long winded. We watch the 2000 film Nuremberg with Alec Baldwin when we returned to our hotel I the evening. If... More
