    More than the Museum documents I found most interesting the outside where you see the inside of the Congress Center remained unfinished and the area where Nazi party rallies were held. You can still feel the atmosphere of the Zeppelin strasse and Platz with the mega Stadium. .. despite trying to reuse the area as perhaps it should be for the local population. Certainly a far walk from the Museum and board a tram into the monumental part. They have restored what they could but important is that they have demolished all decades ago to relearn to young people what happened to not make that happen more.

    I was given that it was a bit strong, however there are only two images of concentration camp deaths that have impressed me.

  • 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.
