Trip Planner: Europe / Germany / Bavaria / Franconia / Middle Franconia / Nuremberg / Germanisches Nationalmuseum
Germanisches Nationalmuseum-- Germany's largest museum of cultural history--houses an enormous collection of German cultural and art objects from prehistoric times to present day. Some highlights include the Cloth of St. Gereon, the oldest European tapestry still existing, plus portraits and paintings by Albrecht Dürer and Ernst Ludwig Kirchner. Most displays contain text only in German, and the layout can be a little confusing. Regardless, the quantity and quality of the collection makes this worth a stop.

This was my second visit to this amazing museum. Instead of exploring new areas I'd missed before, I decided to return to the religious art/artifacts sections. These made the strongest impressions...

Loved it! So much to see but just enough in every subject/time period to keep it interesting. Some exhibits were closed but still plenty to fill our afternoon. Very creative how the museum wraps around and through the church and old abbey structures. The old world globes were the highlight for us! A must visit when in Nuremberg!
Excellent museum, fantastic historical collections from all ages and for different interests. A couple of days needed to appreciate all with calm and comprehension. Just a few hours if you want to take a quick round of the principal attractions.
