Germanisches Nationalmuseum – The Treasure of the German World

Virtually any tour program includes a visit to Germanisches Nationalmuseum - the largest museum of art and culture of German-speaking world, which has existed since 1852. The gigantic museum contains more than 1.2 million items. A whole day is not enough to explore all that!

Among the exhibits are prehistoric artifacts, weapons and armor, instruments of torture, jewelry, textiles, tableware and cooking utensils, costumes, furniture, musical instruments, toys and much more. There are even such specific items as prostheses and surgical instruments used in the Middle Ages.

The museum's collection includes works by famous residents of Nuremberg - painter and graphic artist Albrecht Dürer, sculptors Veit Stoss and Adam Kraft, as well as outstanding works by German (and German-speaking) artists of different eras.

The oldest extant globe - Erdapfel (literally translated as earth apple) is one of the main values of the museum. It was created in 1492 by a native of Nuremberg, sailor and explorer Martin Behaim. This explains why there is no picture of America on the globe: the opening of Columbus was not still known at that time.
