Memorial Nuremberg Trials

World history was written in the courtroom of the Nuremberg Palace of Justice. This is where leaders of the Nazi regime had to answer for their crimes before an international tribunal between November 20, 1945 and October 1, 1946. The trial had an enormous influence on the development of international criminal law right up to the present.

Courtroom 600 remains a working courtroom to this day.

Since the end of 2010, the top floor of the Courthouse accommodates a new information and documentation centre, the "Memorial Nuremberg Trials". It provides insight into the defendants and their crimes, the Nuremberg Follow-Up Trials of 1946-49 and the impact of the Nuremberg Trials right up to the present.

For current visiting hours, please visit the website of the museum.
