  • This museum handles about the big events that Hitler made in Nuremberg and the effects it had for Germany as well as for the rest of Europe. Very original location into the former ( unfinished ) Conge...  more »
  • Probably not appropriate for children as young as ours, which we shielded from some areas of the museum, but it is a very well put together museum with a lot of information. Would recommend for adults...  more »
  • We visited here in February. A very interesting place to visit. For someone who is not very historically minded this was an eye opening place and it put a lot of things into perspective. Easily access...  more »

  • Wish they gave a more extensive outside tour or had more information posted in the rally ground about the history. It looked abandoned for the most part, used for storage or loading docks for current companies... didn't feel like a historical monument. But it was still an amazing feeling to be there.
  • This was a really informative experience. Got the audio guide. Well worth it. We found it very interesting and moving.
  • Boring audio visual museum. Not many objects to look at. Could use the building and grounds to better effect. The audio device they provide is quite heavy to be holding up to your ear for over an hour. Museum in Nuremberg center is much better.
  • Good narration, professionally prepared exhibition, but... all what you get is a story told by audioguide and pictures. Not much of artefacts, not much use of the place itself. Honestly it could be just offered as online service (website) and it would give you the same experience. Of course modern exhibition use a lot of audiovisuals, but there must be still something more than just couple of films, pictures and a lot of talking
  • Interesting and well preserved site. Mind blowing fascist architecture. Interesting museum. A must visit.

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.
