The location is great, near the castle and other interesting spots. The house is well preserved and looks very idyllic. However, if you're going there to enjoy in Durer's work, maybe you will be a little disappointed. In the house there is only one room with several paintings. Although some of the paintings are very famous, the small room is... More

It's an amazing old building and to know that Albrecht Dürer walked those very rooms gives me goosebumps! The price is ok 5.- and you get an audio guide (which we didn't use). There's also lockers where you can drop your stuff whilst walking through the house. There is lots to see and it is lovingly laid out and you... More

We were excited to visit the house and keenly donned on our headset and started walking around. Within ten minutes it became clear that the house is full of copies of Durer's work, and not even good ones. Very disappointing.

I could imagine how Dürer worked and lived in this superb house, plenty of light, so necessary for a painter and printer. The house has also old printer and studio templates to make a great visit.

If you have studied a little bit before your visit you feel much more inside. Not suitable for babby strollers. Dont forget to visit the shop facing the house .

Although there are no original Dürer works (there basically are none at all left in Nuremberg), for 5 euros it gives a great overview of the man and his life. There are several full-size, officially commissioned copies, and seeing his the interior of his 15th-century house is worth it in itself. Plenty of interactive displays giving good overviews of his... More

Very interesting insight into one of Nurembergs most famous residents. If you are interested in middle age art and history this is just the thing. We spent a pleasant hour in the house.
