“Not worth the time”
Reviewed September 15, 2012

The Hauptmarkt isn't worth the time. No real history available, lots of tourist shops. Nothing screams tourist trap like a McDonalds and a Starbucks across the street from the cathedral.

“Stunning”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

This is the type of square that you imagine is in every German town - it is really here in Nuremberg.

It has a number of shops restaurants and other attractions and is a great start and finish to any tour of Nuremberg.

“Not what it was”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

While worth a visit the hauptmarkt is not what it once was and has a majority of stalls catering to tourists and not much else. I am told that it is very nice at Christmas though.

“Ancient City”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

Haumptmarkt is a great place to hang out and enjoy the city....even if you don't buy a thing. It almost has the feel of a movie set.
