  • On the scenic market place is the "Fontana Bella" and faces the Church of our Lady, but all the buildings around are very beautiful. During the Christmas season the famous Christmas market takes place here.

  • Croooowdy place. Coffe could have been better.
  • This place was amazing! The square is open, and there is a lot of old and amazing scenery and buildings to take in! Massive cathedral, and a really amazing water fountain are in/near the square. When I was there, all sorts of vendors were present. I had some of the best beer I've ever had - all I could drink - for free! I had some amazing foods, and much more. Don't miss this place, smack dab in the middle of town!
  • Hauptmarkt Nuremberg with the famous Frauenchurch is the place where you will find the world-famous “Christkindlesmarkt” ( Christmas market ) in December. Enjoy Nuremberger sausages, ginger bread and hot spicy wine!!!
  • Wonderful historic city center. What is there greatly depends on the day. Could be a farmers market. Beer vendors. The ever famous Christkindl market. Lebkuchen all year round.
  • Loved it. Was quite busy and very scenic.
