The history of the partnership between Krakow and Nuremberg dates back to the 14th century, from when economic relations between the two cities existed. Artistic ties have also flourished in close association with each other, with the greatest development occurring during Krakow's heyday in the 15th and 16th centuries, when the city attracted German artists such as the sculptor Wit Stwosz and the painter Hans Dürer. A state agreement between West Germany and Poland signed in 1970 enabled renewed contacts between Krakow and Nuremberg. In 1979 the cities signed an official partnership. Its crowning achievement was the establishment of the Cracow House in Nuremberg and the Nuremberg House in Cracow, both of which are economic and cultural landmarks of the partner cities.
The Nuremberg House in Cracow is an administrative unit of the City of Nuremberg and is located on the corner of Krakowska and Skałeczna Streets, in the 17th century historic "House under the Star". Since its inception, the Nuremberg House in Krakow has pursued an ambitious programme of presenting Nuremberg's artists and the city's cultural projects, as well as organising a range of events relating to the German language and culture of the country. The Nuremberg House cooperates with a number of Krakow-based institutions and foreign cultural institutes, and is also a partner of some of the festivals organised by the City of Krakow.
