Nürnberg’s only surviving 15th-century, half-timbered burgher’s house also happens to have been the home of one of its most illustrious native sons, Albrecht Dürer (1471–1528). The artist lived and worked here from 1509 to 1528, and many of his etchings and woodcuts hang in rooms filled with furnishings of the period. An English-language audio tour, narrated by Dürer’s wife Agnes, introduces you to the artist, who was the son of a prosperous goldsmith, achieved considerable fame and fortune, and has had a profound effect on printmaking for the past 500 years, ever since he became known throughout Europe early in his career.
