Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Its easy to miss Handwerkerhof if you aren't looking for it but this is the cutest place in all of Nuremberg. It is like stepping back in time with quaint architecture, shops and fabulous dining experiences. A must see, do and eat.

We found this nice area by chance near the Main Railway Station. It’s like a village with faity-tale houses, real shops, bars and restaurants. We returned there in the evening and it was even nicer with yellow lights.

You can’t go to Nuremberg and miss this area…..It’s like falling into a history book! The shops are cute and the restaurants are good. If you do go, try Bratwurst Glocklein for a drink or a meal. We absolutely loved it there! Great atmosphere, great food and a great price! Enjoy!

cool, atmospheric place between the historic city walls, a medieval street with stalls, shops and bars. You can feel the atmosphere of old times and eat something good.

We had no idea that this place existed, but as we were walking along the wall, stumbled upon this little corner. It was exactly what I love - authentic shops with amazing craftspeople and specialists making quality products. There was a metalworker, leather shop, gingerbread, potter, silversmith etc. I bought some handcrafted tea mugs and hand made silver earrings. We found a wonderful restaurant for lunch. The whole place was charming and i loved it. Beautiful surprise. Worth the visit.

Handwerkhof is a recreation of a medieval shopping village, making use of the tower and landmark Frauentor, which would have formed part of the historic city wall during the Middle Ages.

You can find Handwerkhof just north of Nuremburg Hbf along Königstor. The courtyard opening hours are 7am to 11pm daily. Individual shops within have varying opening hours.

What you find here is a quint medieval scene with timbered houses and cobblestone alleys. The shops that line the inner walls of Handwerkhof sell crafts, gifts, local food, drinks. Its a neat little arrangement and worth a quick look-see for those sightseeing in the southern part of Nuremburg.

Note - During our recent visit, Handwerkhof was taking part in the Christmas market scene, adding another benefit to visiting during the holiday season.

Check out the metalwork shop. It had beautifuly detailed plates and cups. I wish I had bought more here because when I left Nuremburg I saw them elswhere for twice as much! Also the resturant "Bratwurstglocklein" here was much better than the much talked about "Bratwursthausle" nearby. The atmosphere was much more relaxed.

A reproduction of a craftsmen neighborhood from the Middle Ages. Very beautiful and picturesque! You can find here a lot of handicraft products: sweets, toys, leather products, ceramics, glass.

The Handwerkerhof is just across the Nuremberg Hbf if you exit the main station. I walked inside this walled little village with small handicraft booths, and small food stalls. I visited before noon but it was not very crowded. There were just few people inside walking around and checking wares. This is a nice place to have lots of photos ops.

This area has gotten very touristy in the last 15 years. The items for sale are more expensive than they should be. You will find better and less expensive items in the market.
