Visit a permanent exhibition and memoriam to the Nuremberg Trials, which convicted German war criminals after the atrocities of World War II.

The Nuremberg Palace of Justice (Justizpalast) is a civic landmark that has memorialized historic war crimes proceedings at the Memorium Nuremberg Trials. Housing active court facilities and public offices, the formal complex received worldwide recognition when it was chosen as the site for the military tribunals against Nazi war criminals. Visit the courtroom where significant leaders of the Third Reich were tried. Read the displays that explain the processes and outcomes.

Make your way to the east wing of the Palace of Justice and admire its preserved façade. The three-story sandstone building has a simple design and was established between 1909 and 1916. Enter the building and walk through its refurbished corridors to the Memorium Nuremberg Trials, which is housed within the same courtroom used for the prosecutions, Courtroom 600. The Palace of Justice was chosen for the trials because it was a large court complex that contained a prison and was mostly undamaged from the war.

Explore the Memorium Nuremberg Trails exhibition and find out about the prominent Nazi leaders who planned or assisted in the Holocaust and other war crimes. Between 1945 and 1946, the Allied Forces tried 24 significant military and political leaders. Another 177 high-ranking Germans faced follow-up trials here. Watch videos and multimedia displays that explain the different events that led up to the tribunals, as well as the legal proceedings that occurred in Courtroom 600. Find out about the leaders who committed suicide and thus were never tried, including Adolf Hitler, Joseph Goebbels and Heinrich Himmler.

Find the Memorium Nuremberg Trials within the east wing of the Nuremberg Palace of Justice. Access to Courtroom 600 cannot be guaranteed, as the room is still used as a venue for jurisdiction and may be in use during your visit to the permanent exhibition. Admission to the exhibition includes an audio guide, which is available in several different languages. Purchase tickets to Memorium Nuremberg Trials in combination with a daily ticket for all of the city’s municipal museums. It is open daily, except Tuesdays and several holidays.

"Newer hotel, nice, clean, and modern. Close to the old town and train station so no nead for a car. The only downside is that the add-on costs (breakfast, parking) felt excessive when compared to other hotels we stayed in in Germany."
