Reserving group tour

How did Nuremberg's "high society" live in the Renaissance? What was the fashionable thing for upper-class ladies to wear? Who did city nobles invite to their parties?

The tour of the Tucher Mansion Museum and Hirsvogel Hall takes visitors deep into the world of the city's rich and powerful aristocracy in the 16th century. You can get a clear idea of how the city's upper class accumulated their wealth through their extensive trade connections. Visitors can experience the luxury of the great merchants of Old Nuremberg, what was served at their table, and how the aristocracy celebrated festive occasions. And of course there's gossip about the various misfortunes and scandals among the Nuremberg upper crust.
