    The Handwerkerhof is a kind of rebuilt miniature Nuremberg. The small "town" is located in the former military courtyard of the King and Frauentorzwingers on Königstraße, directly opposite the main train station.The Handwerkerhof was created on the occasion of the 500th birthday of Albrecht Dürer. One wanted to show the arriving guests a piece of historic Nuremberg at the time of the imperial city in the year of the drought of 1971. In the "City in the City" artisanal objects, souvenirs, nostalgic toys, and Nuremberg gingerbread are now offered in small replica half-timbered houses. The (art) craftsmen who make their products partly on site, can be seen at work over the shoulder. Two culinary establishments provide for the physical welfare. The name of the legendary Bratwurst Glöcklein lives on in the form of an economy in the artisan court.

    Especially in the evening there is a great, idyllic atmosphere away from the usual 08/15 shopping streets.

    In the evening it is particularly atmospheric. Unfortunately sometimes quite full.

    Unfortunately, highlights have been put together senselessly here - the photos and tips do not only refer to the craft market!

    The Frauenkirche, today Roman Catholic parish church of Our Lady, stands as one of Nuremberg's most important churches on the east side of the main market. It was built at the instigation of Emperor Karl in the parish from 1352 to 1362 as a hall church with three times three yokes; on the west side, facing the market, is a porch in front, in the east is followed in the width of the nave a two-bay choir with 5/8-final. From Adam Kraft comes the western gable with a Maßwerktabernakel for the so-called "Männleinlaufen" of 1509, which is still in operation. From the construction period around 1360 many sculptures of high quality have been preserved (partly strongly restored).(Https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frauenkirche_(N%C3%BCrnberg))

    The Lorenzkirche was the parish church of the medieval settlement center of the former imperial city of Nuremberg, which is located south of the Pegnitz, and forms the counterpart to the older St. Sebald church in the northern district of the city. Construction of the three-aisled basilica was around 1250, the late-Gothic hall choir was completed in 1477.
    Since the Reformation, the Lorenzkirche is next to the Sebalduskirche one of the two major Protestant city churches in Nuremberg, both of which belong to the deanery of Nuremberg Evangelical Lutheran Church in Bavaria.
