City Museum in the Fembo House

A museum about Nuremberg history

The Fembo House is the last remaining trader and patrician family home in Nuremberg from the Renaissance and Baroque era. Built in 1596  by the Dutch silk trader Philipp van Oyrl in a prominent location between the city hall and the Imperial Castle, it today houses the Nuremberg city museum. 


Here you have free admission with the NUREMBERG CARD!

It is named after one of its former owners, the art dealer Georg Christoph Franz Fembo. He played a key role in preserving the house. During a tour of the museum, you will experience past eras in magnificent historical rooms: The dance hall, the Baroque vestibule or the “Beautiful Room” from the Pellerhaus bring the splendor of the patrician lifestyle back to life. The permanent exhibit “A Crown – Power – History” offers an overview of Nuremberg’s moving history in a condensed form.

The Altstadtfreunde invite you to sing and make music in historic courtyards. The meeting point is the Fembohaus from December 19 to 21 at 6 pm. Accompanied by Christmas music, you can enjoy the Advent season in peace and quiet as you stroll through the courtyards.
