4.6/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web
The post-World War II Nuremburg Trials were held right here at Palace of Justice. You can take a guided tour or explore on your own with an audio guide. You'll learn about the background, progression, and repercussions of these significant trials. Relics from the hearings, including parts of the original dock, audiotapes, and films, are on display. The courtroom where the trials took place is still in use today. You may not be able to enter it if court is in session. However, you can still view the courtroom through a skylight. Put Palace of Justice and other Nuremberg attractions into our Nuremberg trip generator, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • The Memorium is an impressive and accessible modern prepared exhibition to the Nuremberg trials, that is as well suited for young and old. You can set the pace yourself because everyone receives an audio guide and can decide at any point of the exhibition if you hear the text or continues. Even my teenagers were thrilled...

  • This is a great add-on for other parts of history, but totally centered on the World War II Nuremberg trials. You lose out on some of the other information that you can get from other areas in Germany...  read more »
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Worth a visit!
