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

An experience, interesting and horrible. Very important to be aware what had happened. It really makes it all so real. The exhibition is interesting but if you really want to listen all the things from each section, you need to have time at least for two hours. I recommend.

Really nice courthouse. Ticket was only 5.- eur. You should start your tour from the 3rd floor, on the 2nd floor is courtroom. You will get little machines and if you put codes into it- you can hear about history in audio version. Keep it next to your ear so you do not disturbe others. Courtroom is also in use... More

We came here as part of a WWII tour. Our tour guide took us through, so we did not have much chance to look at the exhibit ourselves. We did not get to see the infamous Courthouse room as a trial was going on. I was glad to have gone.

The whole center of Neurenberg is impressive, but the Palace of Justice gets your attention for it's size and good condition of preservation.

The Memorium Nuremberg Trials is located in the Palace of Justice. It is here that the Nuremberg trials took place. It provides information about the history, the course and the repercussions of the trials. Selected exhibits, such as parts of the original dock, and historical sound and film documents make this place very informative.

This is a great add-on for other parts of history, but totally centered on the World War II Nuremberg trials. You lose out on some of the other information that you can get from other areas in Germany. But comma the information presented is amazing and well worth the visit.

Very interesting and thought provoking to be in this historic courtroom, although it's been reconfigured to the layout it had prior to the famous trials. There are interesting exhibits in adjacent rooms. The site is easily accessible from the U-Bahn.
