The Nuremberg Palace of Justice (German: Justizpalast) is a building complex in Nuremberg, Bavaria, Germany. It was constructed from 1909 to 1916 and houses the appellate court (Oberlandesgericht), the regional court (Landgericht), the local court (Amtsgericht) and the public prosecutor's office (Staatsanwaltschaft). The Nuremberg Trials Memorial (Memorium Nürnberger Prozesse) is located on the top floor of the courthouse.
The building was chosen as the location of the Nuremberg trials (1945–1949) for the main surviving German war criminals of World War II because it was almost undamaged, was large enough, and included a large prison complex. The choice of the city of Nuremberg was symbolic as the Nazi Party had held its large Nuremberg rallies in the city.

Great museum, great experience all round well maintained and updated. In great detail. I mean the facts and people, places were really thorough and pinpointed - German style 😉 "Downsides" there aren't any, if you speak Deutsche. There were hardly any English lines, let alone some other languages... You get the "mobile phone" kinda thing, and then you press the number on a picture, thing as you proceed through the complex, just to find out it's about something you necessarily don't have an interest in... I mean I got over it eventually, but I admit it was frustrating at some points. To finish of in positive light, it was great. You get a strange feeling sitting in there on the same chair Goering sat and the atmosphere in the room is a experience of it's own. Price is also good 6€ for adults and 1,5€ for EU students. I Recommend it!

Arguably one of the most significant places in 20th century history. Just make sure the courtroom is open the day you come because it is still used for trials sometimes, so phone ahead! The third floor has an exhibition of photos and items related to the Nuremberg Trials. 6 euros for adults. Most of the written info is in German, but audio guides are available in English and other languages.

An amazing exhibition of photographs covering the trial of the Nazi war criminals. A large collection of photographs with documentary evidence both written and auditory in many different languages. However some auditory links are unavailable in English. The climax of the exhibition is the courtroom where the trials took place. The door where the Nazi’s entered the dock is clearly visible. A must to see for all.

Not one person who visits Nuremburg should miss this. The exhibit gives a detailed unbiased account of the atrocities that had occurred and led to the capture and trial of the high ranking Nazis who orchestrated these crimes on humanity. The actual courtroom where the trials take place is open to view when not in session, it is still a functioning courtroom - go early or you might not get in.. The exhibit shows how the courtroom had to be redesigned to accommodate the trials. We must never forget what the Nazis did and that other countries with delusional would be dictators are capable of going down this sane path.

Take the time to follow all the exhibit în order. The audioguide is excelent and free or really cheap.

With no disrespect to the history they are representing, the highlight of this visit for me was the 30-min walk by the river from the Altstadt (historical old town) to this museum. The Courtroom 600 was next best but there was an overload of written and oral info in the main exhibition room, delivered in boring text and flat toned narratives. After a short time the lighting in that room just gave me headaches so I left after browsing the rest of the room very, very quickly.

Rude cashiers. Very poor exhibition, mostly signed in German. Audio is available, but of no use to the hearing impaired. We were lucky as courtroom 600 was not in use, otherwise a mostly wasted visit.

A must see Museum if you want to understand the first international trial against crimes against humanity, the ground floor to build the ICC that sits in The Hague in the Netherlands.

Lots to listen to and a good education on the trial process. English audio guide easy to use and the staff at the reception were friendly and welcoming.

This part of history attracts less of visitors but being here taught things I did not know. The Nazi party started in Nuremberg and ended in Nuremberg.
