Pocket Guide: Nüremberg German National Museum Hotels

Where to Stay near the German National Museum

Nuremburg’s German National Museum has one of the biggest collections of German cultural artefacts in the world. Visiting it is almost compulsory when you’re in Nurember. The museum is in Nuremberg’s atmospheric Altstadt, or old town, with several places to stay nearby.

Find stylish design hotels on historic streets, just paces away from the German National Museum. Look near the Pegnitz River for luxury hotels with unbeatable water views or check out Nuremberg’s budget hotels on one of the many narrow streets that wind through the old town. Alternatively, look for accommodation near Nuremberg’s main railway station, where you can find boutique and brand-name hotels at a range of prices.

Explore the German National Museum

Set aside several hours of your day to discover room after room of the German National Museum, a vast chronicle of national culture and art. The museum, which is one of the largest in Europe, opened in 1852. The original building was destroyed in World War II, so today the collections are in a modern building inspired by the monastery that used to be on the site.

Start in any one of the 26 different galleries. The German National Museum’s permanent collection contains over one million items of German history and art. Browse displays of 18th-century fashion and musical instruments through the centuries. Baroque decorative arts, children’s toys and folk arts are just a few of the topics covered across the exhibits.

The German National Museum: a Journey through Time

Trace the history of Germany in a chronological journey through the galleries. Begin with the exhibit on prehistory, learning about the use of early tools in Europe. A gallery on the late Middle Ages features reconstructions of church walls and stunning altarpieces from the 14th century.

Stop by the Nuremberg Terrestrial Globe, the oldest existing globe in the world, which dates back to the 1400s. A gallery dedicated to scientific instruments follows the development of technology in Germany, including a vast collection of timepieces.

After a day at the German National Museum, head back for a good night’s sleep in your hotel nearby.
