We only had a couple hours in this square, but it was definitely worth a visit. I was intrigued with the Schoener Brunnen (Beautiful Fountain) in the middle of the square. The intricate gilded figures and ornate patterns on this Gothic fountain are steeped in history and legend - look for the golden ring! Frauenkirche was beautiful - quite crowded around noon when the figures march about the clock over the massive front door of the church. Inside was magnificent. There were some nice shops and restaurants - we especially enjoyed the gingerbread at Lebkuchen Schmidt, so much so that we went back in and bought more after eating the first batch while watching the clock! Had lunch at Bratwurst Roslein, established in 1431 and very atmospheric with heavy wooden tables and leaded windows. They had a great selection of German food including many samples of bratwurst as you would expect.

1 of the very best Christmas market of the country or probably even entire Europe, in a medieval city setting, a cold nice weather... and there you are, best square of a city to soak yourself in Christmas spirit..

We enjoyed the Christmas Market. One drawback was that for the thousands there, there were no bathrooms or portables. Lining up in Macdonalds is the only choice. (50cents)

Will definately go back again, well worth the visit, there was so much to see and do. We found the market traders very friendly but not pushy and some amazing gifts to bring home. The shopping there is brilliant, my daughter and I are coming back in the summer to do our yearly shop, havent told the husband yet.
