The Dürer House, a corner building next to Tiergärtner Gate, lies in a part of Nuremberg, in which the architectural atmosphere of the old Nuremberg is still evident. Albrecht Dürer bought the timber-frame building in 1509 and lived here until his death in 1528.
The following rooms can be visited inside: the late Gothic hall on the ground floor, which was originally used for storage purposes, a richly equipped kitchen and the "Traveller's Rooms" as reconstructions of typical Dürer period living quarters. The two lower floors present life and living in the Renaissance. A special attraction is the painting and drawing workshop in which Dürer period art techniques are demonstrated. There is a printing workshop next door. The refurbished gallery rooms in the attic present Dürer's graphic oeuvre in temporary exhibitions. The multi-vision show "Albertus Durer Noricus" in the modern annex takes visitors on a virtual journey through Albrecht Dürer's life and work. At certain times an actress, dressed as Dürer's wife Agnes, guides visitors through the house. Otherwise visitors can tour the house with an audio guide.
