  • Well worth a visit if your in the city of nurenberg , to walk around this place you get that feeling of the past and the way of living for some people it's well preserved and easy to get around 
  • This is a good place to visit when it is wet. It is part old and part modern.The new part shows paintings and their history.The old part is interesting but is only furnished with things from that time...  read more »
  • If you don’t know the name, you’ll know at least one of his paintings. The pen and ink drawing of praying hands is probably his most famous piece, followed by the watercolour of a young hare. It was p...  read more »
  • A well put together museum that has a good mix of information about the house and the man. The audio guide in English is great and very cleverly put together. It is not a particularly large house and you don't need to spend any longer here than the audio guide takes.
  • Nice house-museum with changing exhibitions. The spring/summer 2016 exhibition of Durer prints from the Diehl collection is outstanding.
  • The house did not suffer during the war! But the exposition and especially audio guide are very strange. I think it's stupid to tell the visitors some details of everyday life of Durer from his wife's point of view (whom the Master even did not like at all as some books tell us). But the woman who creates authentic pictures from copper lists is absolutely fantastic and made her job well! She explained everything about the process and showed it step by step! Thank you, Frau!!!
  • Didn't know who Albrecht Durer was until coming here. He's the one who drew the praying hands which has become a tattoo favourite! The only thing is, very limited original works of his is actually inside the house...
  • Interesting museum.
