“Unless you have an interest in Albrecht avoid”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2013

Unless you have an interest in Albrecht Durer, it might be worthwhile avoiding unless you have plenty of time to kill. Audio guide is essential however you might begin wishing you hadn't bothered , as the audio is an imitation of Albrecht Durer's wife which is rather unexciting and rather monotone.

“History comes to life”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

The audio guide (free with entry) brought the house to life. Loved watching the artists working in his original studio. If you like art, this is a must see.

“Perfect place for an art history fan!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

I loved going to the Durer house. The audio guide was one of the most interesting audio guides I've used because it was narrated from the perspective of Durer's wife. They also had demonstrations of different art techniques. Just the house itself with its old kitchen and small rooms was interesting to see. The only thing that I felt was lacking was a larger store because I definitely would have bought more Durer stuff!

“Durer House - just beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013

The audio guide in English is great! it seemed to be a bit better than the Italian audio guide. Both allow the visitor to easily imagine Durer's life there. The views from the windows are just wonderful. The guide explains lots of interesting details from the days of Durer. I recommend a visit.

“A visit to family home of a famous artist”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013

Visit to the house was interesting - guided by his "wife" in person and on a audio guide. See where he lived and worked but not paintings.
