Overview

Starting in 1509, Germany’s most famous painter Albrecht Durer (1471–1528) lived in this impressive half-timbered house in the picturesque old town of Nuremberg for nearly 20 years. Durer's home is one of the few surviving merchant houses from Nuremberg’s Golden Age. Special attractions of Germany’s first artist museum, founded in 1828, include the guided tours, led by an actress playing Durer’s wife, Agnes. The workshop features demonstrations of historic printing techniques. Rare copies of Durer’s paintings are presented in the Durer Hall.

The Albrecht Duerer House was our first excursion in Nuremberg and was an absolute delight. Having studied 16th century Germany and the history of printing for many years, I was especially interested in the Duerer House, the printing displays, and all the paintings on display....More

A quintessential German building where the famous author once lived just off the main center square.

I loved being able to tour the inside of a home where the genius Durer lived--could very easily imagine him at work in the studio, and also just interesting to see how these old houses functioned, with the kitchens, etc.

We did the audio tour of the house. A great peek into period life and art of an artist actually popular in his own time, and a working printing press so you can imagine how it happened.

The audiotape is essential. It is exceedingly thorough. Durer was an important figure in painting and graphic arts.

Interesting place to visit not only because we knew little about the man, Albrecht Durer, but also because you find out so much about the period in which he lived. Yes, the interior is all reconstructed with reference to history rather than with anything belonging...More

This is the original house owned by Durer. It has been restored and furnished to give an impression of what it might have looked like. It's incredible that it survived the war, when all buildings around it were reduced to rubble. The audio guide was...More
