A summer home for the city's nobility: The Tucher Mansion

A view of the Tucher Mansion from the Renaissance garden.

Reserving group tour

The collection from the holdings of the aristocratic Tucher family includes valuable items of furniture, tapestries, paintings and fine craftwork. The picturesque Renaissance garden offers an impressive view of the Hirsvogel Hall – home to one of Germany's finest Renaissance interiors, with splendid paneling attributed to Peter Flötner, a famed ceiling painting by Dürer's student Georg Pencz, and plaster busts of twelve Roman emperors. The Tucher Mansion, which is decorated as a residential space, offers a first-hand contact with that period in Nuremberg's history.
