  • Located on the outskirts of the city on the edge of the beautiful city park and close to the Lakes. The exaggerated size of the complex give an idea of how megalomaniac project, especially considering that much of it was destroyed during the Allied bombing. Disturbing the Congress Hall, which was expected to exceed in size the Coliseum. Here there were parades, gatherings and events, also there were filmed the famous black and white footage of Nazi party supporters who hail ecstatic Hitler, unaware that everything was part of the party's propaganda campaign. It's not nice to see, but you get the idea of the folly of those years.

  • The exhibition is well implemented and provides much insight into the eerie story of the NAZI time. You have the possibility to go free audio guide through the exhibition. Everything is very well explained and easy to understand even for young people. The journey can be done well with public transport but also with the car. The admission price is ok.

  • Certainly one of the best museums of Nuremberg with the Toy Museum. We go in for €1 50 as a student. It takes good 2,5 hours to get through it. We get an audioguide for free t in most languages. We enjoyed a lot the way so the Museum explains how Hitler was able to impose the cult of his person, in general, but also through the city of Nuremberg. I again did it 3 times.

  • Great museum! Learned lots. Takes you from the formation of the party through up to the trials. Everything is in German so get the English audio book on the way in, free with entry. We took our time and it took 3 hours listening to everything. Most people flew by us. Recommend doing the walk around the party grounds after your done inside.
  • Extremely good museum. Takes you step by step through the history in great detail provided by audioguide in English and other languages. The museum is engaging and well laid out. The content is moving and interesting. Allow plenty of time for the museum so you are not rushed. The surrounding parkland is also interesting to walk around.
  • I thought this was great museum. Very interesting information, with a wonderful layout. The architecture and design really made it special, a unique way of adding on a modern museum while still preserving the historical authenticity of the building. A great blend of text, audio, video, photographs, personal stories, models and architectural plans.
  • This place has an amazing story to tell. It’s outside of the city center but it’s super accessible via bus 36 or tram 8 if you are coming from the city center. It’s a must visit when in Nuremberg because it tells a very important story about a specific time of the city.
  • Must to see in Nürnberg. The hall is huge and it is a part of the history. There is some posters, but it could be more interesting with more pictures. I think the most.side of this hall is a kind of storage or logistic center. This side is kind of ruined, it would better if they rebuild the stage, or make it more interactive somehow. The park next to it is nice in the good weather, but pay attention to the lot of doggy stuff in the footway. In.nutshell it is a really interesting building, but for the hall 20 minutes is more than enough.

Where to stay in Nuremberg

The Altstadt and the Egidienviertel districts, the city's historical sections, provide an array of guesthouses and hotels. An alternative is the Gostenhof area, a suburban region with a selection of tourist sites. If you stay in Gostenhof, however, you need to take public transportation to the city center. For local flair, consider staying in the Knoblauchsland district near the Hauptmarkt. Avoid the Südstadt district near the train station, which is mainly residential and doesn't offer many entertainment options or access to sites.
