The number 9 tram from Hauptbahnhof gets you there in around 15 minutes. It was fairly quiet on a weekday (a school group were just leaving!). The building is an impressive design and the museum is well laid out. The entrance fee is reasonable and there are lockers for leaving your coats and bags which was a good idea in... More

If you want to spend hours on end walking around a museum then this is for you. Personally I wouldn't bother. Go outside instead and see inside the congress hall for free. Access round the side past the entrance to museum. Take in the magnitude of it all from ground level and it doesn't cost you to do it.

Definitely worth the trip and taking the audio guide. Impressive what was plans and to be executed. I highly suggest to take this chance to learn about Nazi history.

For those who are into history, this is well worth a visit. Although you get an audio guide, the only snag is that most exhibits do not have an English caption. Apart from the actual building, make sure to visit the grounds. It's a little bit tricky to find the entrance to the arena, especially when the girl at the... More

Nice but a long tour. You will have audio commentary and they provide a nice espresso. There are lockers to keep your belongings, keep them in the locker because you will have a long walk through champers.

The museum is located in part of the remaining Nazi structure, most of which was never completed. The museum is informative and particularly good at explaining the rise of the Nazis and the personality cult around Hitler, as well as the significance of Nuremberg to the Nazis. For English speakers it requires the use of the audio guide which was... More

The Documentation Center Nazi Party Rallying Grounds (German: Dokumentationszentrum Reichsparteitagsgelände) is a museum in Nuremberg. It is in the north wing of the unfinished remains of the Congress Hall of the former Nazi party rallies. Its permanent exhibition "Fascination and Terror" is concerned with the causes, connections, and consequences of Nazi Germany. Topics that have a direct reference to Nuremberg... More

Was worth a visit, however found it a bit monotonous and boring after a while to be honest. It was just board after board with writing on in German so basically just had to go through and listen to the audio guide. It was interesting but got to be a bit long winded about half way through. Probably would have... More

Easy to get to using public transport - we caught a tram there and the S-Bahn back to the city centre (HBF). We had an audio guide, and the facility primarily covered the rise of the Nazi party, a little bit about WWII and some info about the Jews at the end of the self-guided tour. A very interesting information... More

Second time I visit, first was alone and this time with my parents. Very wide range of material on the Nazi regime and Hitler's ascendence to power in the 1930. Admirable to see how Germans have made a critical, objective view of their own history and share it with the world. The dimension of the Gelande that Hitler was building... More
