Visitor Information

Museum Tucher Mansion and Hirsvogel Hall

The world of the major merchant families and of the noble Patricians comes to life again in the Museum Tucher Mansion.

This garden residence, completed in 1544, was used not only for business deals, but sumptuous parties were also celebrated here in former years. It almost seems as if the former residents had just gone out for a walk.

Apart from valuable furniture and tapestries, the museum presents the famous Tucher ewers, especially enamelled in Limoges, as well as a silver double goblet created by Wenzel Jamnitzer and a portrait of Hans VI. Tucher, painted by Albrecht Dürer's teacher, Michael Wolgemut.

With the re-creation of the Hirsvogel Hall, Nuremberg's "Renaissance Island" was complete. After the destruction of World War II, and the 'temporary' storage of the hall's furnishings for decades, the famous hall found a new home in the redesigned gardens of the Tucher Mansion.
