  • This is a bit of a distance from Nuremberg centre so you'll probably need to get here with the tram or bus - I took Bus #36 which drops you at the entrance to the visitor center. The exhibition inside...  more »
  • Powerful museum. So concerned about what is going on in US I really wanted to understand how the rise of Nazism happened. Powerful and enlightening.  more »
  • A piece of German history, you have to see. The Third Reich represented graphically. It is particularly impressive that you can then immediately see the historical sites.

  • This is a very interesting museum and worth the visit. I learned so much about how influential Hitler was to the young people. His speeches and rally had lots of energy. The audio tour is filled of rich and detailed history starting with the rise of Hitler and to the end of the war. If you listen to everything it has to say you'll be in the museum all day!
  • A fantastic museum only €5 to get in including an audio guide in your language, which makes the museum that much more informative. On top of the museum itself there is a route around all the other parts of the rally ground, which you will have learned about in the museum. All in all a very complete package that will take up a whole day.
  • The building is full of History and it has impact. However, the exhibition area didn't have a single written translation in English (we had audio but the picture's subtitles were in German only). The videos were the best explanatory part.
  • Crazy to walk through. To see what the area would have looked like is insane. Audio guide included, lockers for bags for a pfand/deposit. No toilets once you've gone into the museum, so go before! The audio guide can be quite long but the details are fascinating.
  • Everyone needs to visit. The museum exhibits themselves are par for the course but the actual size and ambition of the building once you emerge onto the outdoor viewing platform is incredible.
