Go there , when you want to stroll along the old city walls and get something typical, handmade and nice. Also touristic shops are there but worth to be seen nevertheless.

Cute handicraft market located in Old Town. Worth a stroll through and maybe a coffee or beer in the quaint area. More info at etbtravelphotgraphy blog.

This place is just across the road from the front of the main railway station. It was a bit disappointing because (for some reason) we expected it to be much larger than it is. We went through it several times over a Friday and Saturday...More

Small but very well stocked craft shops and eating places. We visited a few times and saw something different every time. Nice place to visit for a short visit or a long drawn out meal.

Handwekerhof is just located opposite of the main train station. It is surrounded by towers and walls of the medieval fortifications. The place is also called "King's gate". Lots of local shops, restaurants and local specialities to discover (A.rtisans work) Very friendly place.

Just inside the Alstadt near the entrance by the Central Station is this small street representing craft workers cottages. Very much a tourist trap, but nice to take a stroll through and check out the various gifts available. You’ll need deep pockets!

This area is just inside the wall of old town and reminds me of more of a set up for tourist shopping. It is inside the town, but still a ways away from the center of town.
