One of Nuremberg’s most famous residents was Albrecht Dürer, the greatest artist of the Northern Renaissance. His timber-framed house in Nuremberg's Old Town, set underneath the Imperial Castle, is now a museum dedicated to the artist's life and work. On display are Dürer’s original etchings, woodcuts and paintings, and you can also tour the artist’s painting and printing workshop, where Dürer's working techniques are demonstrated.
Every Saturday at 2 p.m., there is a guided tour in English.
