Definitely worth a visit for WWII buffs...
Jun 2021 • Couples
Visited in Sept. '19. Courtroom 600 where the trials were held and The Palace of Justice are still in use today. Try to schedule a visit on a day court is unlikely to be in session so you can visit the actual courtroom and sit and listen to the audio guide for a bit.

There is a large exhibition upstairs on the Nuremburg trials and the controversy and international law aspects of the trials/precedent they set both then and now. Both WWII buffs and legal scholars should not miss this if in Nuremburg for a day or two.

Well worth a visit
Sep 2020
I had heard about the Nuremburg trials but to actually visit the courtroom and see all of the history and information behind the trials was really eye opening.
I'm one of those people who gets bored quickly in museums but I was totally enthralled here. The audio guides where brilliant and even included in the entrance fee. We were able to visit the actual courtroom, which is still in use today so some days you may not be able to visit it.

Memorium Nuremberg Trials
Aug 2020
This is the court building, where the trials following the Second World War took place in 1945 to 1949. It is located in the western part of the city and there is a U-Bahn stop (Bärenschanze) within a short walk.

The exhibits are extensive and describe the background and progress of the trials in a very good and thoroughly way. Several interesting details if you are interested in these historic trials. Also, it is possible to visit Courtroom 600.

The trials later influenced international law on war crimes, and this is also described.

Interesting place to visit. You are able to seat in the room where the trials took place. They have a documentation area throughout with displays.

Really informative visit. Learnt how important the Nuremberg Trials were in holding those responsible for genocide to account. Was lucky enough to see the courtroom itself aswell, as it isn't always open.

Impressive piece of history after WW2. Interesting to see how the Trials were run with all the translators and representatives from many countries.

Significant WWII History
May 2019
If you're into WWII History and the trials that followed, it would be worth coming here for a tour. My husband took a black and white picture of me standing in front of the court room and compared it to the original black and white photo of the courthouse, it was pretty neat for a WWII history buff like me!

Historical Significance
Dec 2019
We stopped by because my brother in law has interests in these things. I wasn't sure what to expect as I wasn't that into it but it is quite a nice place for some historical information about the trials.
We came by train and got tickets there without pre-booking. We opted for an audio guide. There are also elevators to get to the displays on the two floors above the entrance.
The first stop was the courtroom and I was quite blown away by it. This was the room where the actual trials were held, although it was modified a bit since the trial. It was quite solemn. The carving above the door was very interesting and that was where they brought in the people undergoing the trials.
That took one floor and the second floor was a museum for the trails. It was a bit hard going through with all the people also looking around, trying not to get in their way. There were a few missing numbers and it was a bit hard to figure out the ordering of the displays.
It was very information-heavy. The displays themselves weren't always in English but the audio guide was helpful in that respect. It had a lot of information about the trials and the displays were laid out in a fairly logical order. They also had portable chairs for those who needed it, it is slightly hidden though, hanging close to the first display.
It was quite an interesting stop, particularly with its historical significance.
