This is a statue of Albrecht Durer, a famous artist born and bred in Nuremberg during the 16th century. Just a Photo stop.

Both a Sight and a Landmark
Dec 2019
The people of Nuremberg clearly have an affinity for their hometown hero, Albrecht Duerer, so much so that they built a statue of him in this square. While the statue is fine, it was also a useful landmark for us on multiple occasions: the Felengange (rock-cut cellar) actually goes underground here, and it's also on the way to the Duerer House and the Kaiserburg Castle.

Monument to Nuremburg's most important historical artist
Dec 2019
There are many statues scattered around the historic city centre of Nuremburg including the Albrecht Dürer Monument at Albrecht-Duerer-Platz and Bergstraße.

This monument is the work of German sculptor Christian Daniel Rauch and was unveiled at this location in 1840. At that time, the square was a milk market.

Albrecht Dürer was born in Nuremburg, lived here for numerous years and executed many of his famous works within the city. He is considered one of German's most important historical artists and his works are now found in important art museums and galleries around the western world.

The bronze statue you see here reminds of his famous self portrait. Albrecht stands in a proud manner, much detail being applied to his face and flowing robes. The statue stands upon a simple stone block pedestal with the artist's name.

It is good monument of Dürer, one worth seeking out for a brief viewing before or after visiting the well preserved and restored Albrecht Durer House around 5 minutes walk from this location.

Short Stop
Dec 2018 • Couples
We did a short stop at the memorial on the walking tour. Fascinating story and a memorial for a good reason and son of the city. A visit to the dungeons seems to be the thing to do.

Nice Statue
Aug 2018 • Couples
It is a nice metal statue on a stone base in a small cobblestone square. Ten minutes or less should be plenty of time to enjoy this well done statue. I will be honest I had never heard of Duerer, but it made me look him up and learn something.

Tribute Statue
Sep 2018 • Couples
A fitting memorial to this City’s most famous son, situated on the square which also bears his name. A previous reviewer mentioned the underground cellars - which are only acccessible by steps located right behind this monument. Unfortunately We were unable to gain access on our trip.

The right tribute
Jan 2018
The statue is the right tribute to the most known Nuremberg artist, Albrecht Dürer. It's in a square, downtown, and has at a short distance some other key points related to him.
