Places of interest

Germany's most famous artist, Albrecht Dürer (1471-1528) was born in Nuremberg. Today the Albrecht Dürer-Haus where this world-renowned artistic genius lived and worked is the main attraction of the "Historical Mile". With the "Germanisches Nationalmuseum", Nuremberg has the largest museum of German art and culture, and with Hirsvogel Hall, it is the home of the most important Renaissance interior north of the Alps.
