The hauptmarkt in Nürnburg was full of yummy food and handmade, germany made or authentic items (wool boots, kids clothing, ceramic kitchenware, fur hats etc). The food was great. I enjoyed the chocolate covered fruit on a stick, and there were many options for pretzels, candy, wurst etc. I loved that the market was filled with locals and tourists alike. Great place to eat, graze and shop.

“A taste of Nuremberg”
Reviewed 29 January 2013

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.

“Christmas Market”
Reviewed 2 January 2013

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)
