Albrecht Durer Street, Nuremberg (Albrecht-Dürer-Straße)

Albrecht Dürer Street (Albrecht-Dürer-Straße / Albrecht-Dürer-Strasse) is a street in the old town of Nuremberg, which is the point of many tourist routes around the city.

The street is named after the German painter, engraver and graphic artist Albrecht Dürer (1471-1528), who is considered the greatest artist of the Renaissance period.

Albrecht Durer and his family lived and worked in one of the houses on the street from 1509 until his death in 1528.

Today, this historic house, restored after the destruction during the Second World War, is an architectural monument and the Albrecht Dürer Museum (Albrecht-Dürer-Haus / Albrecht-Dürer-House) is located within its walls.

The two lower floors of the house are built of sandstone, the two upper ones are half-timbered. The half-palm roof has windows facing the street.
