Dürer's house is the only artist’s house in Northern Europe that still survives in largely original form from the Renaissance. This is where Albrecht Dürer (1471-1528), one of the greatest figures in European art history, lived and worked from 1509 to 1528. It also offers a unique sense of the lifestyle of the city's burghers during Nuremberg's golden age.
The tour of the four-story house reveals the famed artist through many different aspects of his life and work. A special attraction is the large painting and printing workshop, where artistic techniques from Dürer's time are demonstrated.
