Albrecht Dürer's House, which has recently been restored, presents in a new concept the living and working quarters of one ofthe most famous painters and graphicartists in art history, namely Albrecht Dürer (1471-1528).
The massive half-timbered house - built in 1420 - was lived in by Dürer from 1509 to 1528. This undestroyed burgher's residence from Nuremberg's golden age is at the same time one of the few surviving 16th century artist's houses in Europe. It contains reconstructed living areas and kitchens as well as a large workshop with functioning printing equipment. The rooms today conveyan authentic atmosphere and reflect the history of the house as the first northern European artist's museum since 1828.
The Dürer Hall
Valuable copies of Dürer paintings will be presented in the newly created Dürer Hall from the summer of 2012. In the Cabinet of Prints and Drawings special exhibitions will display treasures from the large number of holdings in the graphics collection of the museen der stadt nürnberg. And finally, Agnes Dürer, his wife, takes you through the master's house, via an audioguide in several languages and even personally in special tours - of course, in guise of an actress.
