Nürnberg was a major European center of finance and art. With its 8 museums, 2 art collections and 2 historical sights, Nürnberg is one of Germany’s most important touristic place: with over 500.000 visitors per year. One of the most interesting things to see is for sure Albrecht Dürer’s house, the only 16th’s century artist’s home in Northern Europe.
See more about his house here. Another museum to visit is the Toy Museum containing 1400 square meters of space: dolls, shops, tin toys, wooden toys and a large train set: Nürnberg has been the city of toys since Middle Ages. If you want to see something unusual but for grown-ups, there are the
Medieval Dungeons in the cellar vaults of the Nürnberg Town Hall. Twelve small cells and a torture chamber provide a clear impression of the justice in the 14th century.
