General information about the Dürer House

Albrecht Dürer's House on Tiergärtnertorplatz.

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.
