  • In my living room in Nuremberg, Handwerkerhof is the district that I liked the most. Artisans ' area, with many small shops and restaurants, is absolutely unique. It is in walking distance from the central station, lose yourself in the narrow streets observing the storefronts, you won't regret it.

  • Beautiful corner passing the bridge of entrance to the ancient city that is opposite the train station, to visit both day and night.

  • This small district is located opposite the central station. Too bad you've found everything closed. Here you will find small shops of local artisans.

  • Takes you back to the medieval age. During the Christmas season, the decorations are just amazing. The prices might seem high, but that’s how it’s nearly everywhere.
  • Beautiful place. The food is good, but there is not variety. Meat as main course and sausages.
  • Lovely craftmanship chalets. Worth a visit.
  • Very nice place. But prices of articles are high. Bought tasty lebkuchen (gingerbread ).
  • Lovely area, a bit "touristy", but worth a stroll, and there are good restaurants.
