Albrecht von Nürnberg was a medieval Bernese master sculptor originally from Nürnberg. He is first mentioned in 1492 and died some time after 1531 in Berne.

His principal works include the nine-metre wooden Christophorus figure originally installed at the Christoffelturm in Berne (1496–1498) and the baptismal font in the Münster of Berne (1524-1525). With Matthäus Ensinger and Erhard Küng, Albrecht is one of three outstanding Bernese sculptors.
