Overview

Albrecht Dürer (1471–1528), Germany's most famous painter, lived in this impressive half-timbered house for nearly 20 years, starting in 1509. Not only is it one of the few surviving merchant houses from Nuremberg's Golden Age, but it is also the only 15th century artist's home remaining in Northern Europe. Today, its interior conveys an authentic atmosphere while reflecting the house's history as Germany's first artist museum, founded in 1828. Special attractions include the guided tours, led by an actress playing Dürer's wife, Agnes. The workshop features demonstrations of historic printing techniques. Changing exhibitions in the Graphic Art Cabinet showcase the treasures of the municipal Art Collection. Rare copies of Dürer's paintings are presented in the Dürer Hall.

The house was spared damage in WWII. The House features artwork reproductions and furnishings of the period of Durer's life. Comprehensive audio guide complete with interesting details such as the illegal toilet that lent a bit of humor to the audio tour.

Great museum. The museum is well thought out and is in keeping with the original style of the house - it doesn’t try to be modern in an old building like some museums I’ve visited. Very informative experience providing information not only on Dürer’s paintings...More

Despite the place itself doesn't contain but copies of the original Dürer's paintings, I found this museum quite interesting and pleasant to visit. The location is also quite good, being just next to the castle. Worth a visit.
