  • Not the bratwurst, the gingerbread, or the Christmas market are the first association with Nuremberg, but the Nuremberg trials in the wide world. Still a rumor must be eliminated. Due to the importance of the city in the Third Reich she was not elected, but simple and poignant as a place for the processes against the major war criminals because there was a little destroyed Court building with good infrastructure. The exhibition in the floor above the famous Hall of 600 is very informative. There will be less on exhibits (essentially a part of the bench of the accused) placed on imparting knowledge. Here again is a very differentiated on the preparation and implementation of the process both the protagonists and the verdict. The end of the exhibition deals with the processes of succession and the development of international law. At least as important as the Dokuzentrum at the Dutzendteich. If you would like to enter in Nuremberg on the NAZI-era Palace of Justice in my opinion is mandatory!

  • What the story called nearer to the reflection. It is what it feels like at every step in this beautiful country. But perhaps there are landmarks, emblematic cities. This is one.

  • This place is a must see...I would have been happy to just stand in the courtroom. The interactive Muesum is a fantastic bonus. Give yourself plenty of time, there is a lot to watch and listen to. With only a 5 euro entrance fee you will get great value for money. Even if you only spend 30 minutes looking around.
  • Quite good exhibition
  • Wow! This is a first class site. A must see if you are in Nurnberg. It is one of the most informative museums I have been to. Make sure you block out at least 3 hours for this interactive experience. A must for "Judgment at Nuremberg" movie fans. Five euro gets you into the trial room and a self-guided tour with an English speaking radio device. Very informative- not only covers the trials but the crimes committed under the Nazi regime and the importance on the world stage of bringing future war criminals to answer to the world for their actions.
  • If you are going to do the rest of the Nazi sites (documentation centre, Zeppelin Field, etc) then this is a must-do bookend to end your tour.
  • Amazing museum.
