I went on the Agnes Dürer Tour of the house. It was about an hour long, the guide spoke very clear English, and the hostess used a lot of dramatic art to role-play her part. It´s definitely a fun way to change up the routine...More

The house itself is well preserved which is amazing but the audio guide (included in entrance) gives so many interesting facts about him and his life. No paintings as they are in galleries round the world so you have to make do with copies/reproductions but...More

This is so cute with the red/white iconic look. Not really something I would go out of my way to see, but definitely along a path you will probably walk down anyhow. We did not go in here.

Not a large 'museum' and in some ways, not really authentic, since there have been so many changes to the house over the centuries, but still very interesting. The audio guide, included in the entrance fee, is very informative and helps you get a feel...More

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

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.
