The audio guide does a good job explaining the life of Duer. They aren’t sure what many of the rooms were used for, as the house had many owners after Duer. It severely damaged in WWII, so you see is a rebuild of course. It...More

Museum has copies of his paintings made in the 19th century. The originals are in the art museum. The house was still interesting.

Not really what to make of this. It's a well preserved but significantly altered 15th century house that Durer lived in. Well done presentation on him but something left us flat.

If you’re there on a Sat at 14:00, take the tour with Albrecht’s “wife”. She gives an hour long tour in English that is cute and brings the whole house to life in front of you.

The family home for over 20 years in the early 16th Century and lucky to avoid damage in the WW2 bombing, when 90% of Nuremberg suffered. Not to be missed if you are an art lover and Dürer fan. I was only familiar with his...More

This is one of the few old houses to survive the bombing in WW2, so it gives you an idea of what the city used to be like. The interpretation of the house is really neat, and its fun to explore.

Modern presentation of Durer's life - worth the visit to explore his house and to observe his printing methods.

Albrecht was very sick when he was old, and even though usually people had the toilets outside the house, because he was a well respected men they let him had his toilet in the house. I don't remember exactly why was it... More
