The Frauenkirche is located right in the heart of Nuremberg's old town, on the main market. Every day at 12:00 o'clock "Männleinlaufen" is always observed, by a more or less large, crowd of spectators. This is a "play" of the art clock by Jörg Heuss (created 1506-09) on the gable of the Michael choir. In memory of the decree of the Golden Bull in 1356, the seven electors pay homage to Emperor Charles IV. The ball above the clock also indicates the phases of the moon.
During the Christmas season, always on the Friday before the first Advent, the Nuremberg Christ Child speaks her prologue on the gallery of the Frauenkirche, thus opening the world-famous Nuremberg Christmas Market.
