I was really surprised that we were able to head into this area since it looked quite historic. It was even better when I noticed that the village had actual shops and restaurants.
The shops inside were really unique and interesting. There was a metalsmith one in there that had a lot of metalwork souvenirs. There was also a nice restaurant in the central area with sausages (but we didn't have time to try it).
The cobblestoned road and the small rustic shops was a nice place to walk and look around. I really enjoyed looking around the small village.

As your leaving the main rail station in Nuremberg across the street you will find this beautiful courtyard filled with many different shops and places to eat and sit and enjoy a beer. Showed up as they were getting ready for Christmas season. May have to come back later in November or early December. People very friendly and helpful. Spent about an hour shopping and taking many pics but could have spent more time if I didn’t have a full itinerary planned for the day. A must visit any time of the year.

Its easy to miss Handwerkerhof if you aren't looking for it but this is the cutest place in all of Nuremberg. It is like stepping back in time with quaint architecture, shops and fabulous dining experiences. A must see, do and eat.

You can’t go to Nuremberg and miss this area…..It’s like falling into a history book! The shops are cute and the restaurants are good. If you do go, try Bratwurst Glocklein for a drink or a meal. We absolutely loved it there! Great atmosphere, great food and a great price! Enjoy!

cool, atmospheric place between the historic city walls, a medieval street with stalls, shops and bars. You can feel the atmosphere of old times and eat something good.

We had no idea that this place existed, but as we were walking along the wall, stumbled upon this little corner. It was exactly what I love - authentic shops with amazing craftspeople and specialists making quality products. There was a metalworker, leather shop, gingerbread, potter, silversmith etc. I bought some handcrafted tea mugs and hand made silver earrings. We found a wonderful restaurant for lunch. The whole place was charming and i loved it. Beautiful surprise. Worth the visit.

Handwerkhof is a recreation of a medieval shopping village, making use of the tower and landmark Frauentor, which would have formed part of the historic city wall during the Middle Ages.

You can find Handwerkhof just north of Nuremburg Hbf along Königstor. The courtyard opening hours are 7am to 11pm daily. Individual shops within have varying opening hours.

What you find here is a quint medieval scene with timbered houses and cobblestone alleys. The shops that line the inner walls of Handwerkhof sell crafts, gifts, local food, drinks. Its a neat little arrangement and worth a quick look-see for those sightseeing in the southern part of Nuremburg.

Note - During our recent visit, Handwerkhof was taking part in the Christmas market scene, adding another benefit to visiting during the holiday season.

Check out the metalwork shop. It had beautifuly detailed plates and cups. I wish I had bought more here because when I left Nuremburg I saw them elswhere for twice as much! Also the resturant "Bratwurstglocklein" here was much better than the much talked about "Bratwursthausle" nearby. The atmosphere was much more relaxed.

A reproduction of a craftsmen neighborhood from the Middle Ages. Very beautiful and picturesque! You can find here a lot of handicraft products: sweets, toys, leather products, ceramics, glass.

The Handwerkerhof is just across the Nuremberg Hbf if you exit the main station. I walked inside this walled little village with small handicraft booths, and small food stalls. I visited before noon but it was not very crowded. There were just few people inside walking around and checking wares. This is a nice place to have lots of photos ops.
