  • This is the main spot in Nuremberg, you do have to come and visit this place. It is mostly crowded with makets and booths. 
  • Here you can find stalls of fruits and vegetables, as also flower stalls. Very beautiful square with the Church in the background

  • The most important and most famous square of Nuremberg, as beautiful as the whole city. Inside the square there is a beautiful Fountain, tradition has it that all passers-by to touch the ring birthstone ring, be careful whom you touch, because the gold one is reserved for tourists, the "real" ring, one that wears well, is the black one on the back of the fountain. Of course I shouldn't have told you that:)
