  • Unfortunately something far more commercial and less craft. Nevertheless a places of interest, little EM's city walls of Nuremberg. Good catering facilities

  • A small courtyard of shops that offered handcrafted items alongside a few rustic restaurants. It was a cute area to walk around, despite the fact we didn't see anything we wanted to buy. 
  • Handwerkerhof visited three years ago. This year the meal again in Nuremberg and flipping the pages came across info that this site is not necessarily to attend decided to write a couple of lines about their impressions. In what cases does not necessarily? If you want to buy electronics, clothing, etc., if you want to see some historical objects, buildings, etc, if you wish time to positive emotions, go here. But, if you love Christmas, Nutcracker, fairy tale, be sure to visit the yard. Get a lot of positive emotions, Hunt souvenirs at the same time, why do you test these German dishes with beer, glûntvejnom or Advocat for dessert.

  • A pleasant enough place to walk through and have a look but the shops are relatively touristy. If you are really after some local craft, you would be better finding some specialty shops. Having said that, it is convenient having everything in the one place and there are some nice things here if you look beyond the non-local mass-produced stuff that some shops are trying to sell.
  • it's very touristy here but really nice to see and spend some time to look through the shops around
  • Looks great but actually the variety is very limited but it makes for great photos as everything is very traditional looking. There's also a pub there for food and drink - something to do if someone else is too busy browsing!
  • Actually in October 2015, most stores are closed at 6-7 p.m. Product's quality is good. But price is so so.
  • Absolutely worth seeing. Visit. Also for delicious food is taken care of here.
