Only in Germany will you find a tiny little medieval handworker’s village nestled into the base of an ancient roman city gate. That’s exactly what we explored this weekend in Nuremberg.
The Handwerkerhof Nürnberg (Nuremberg Hand Worker’s Court) is a neat little courtyard made up of storefronts selling handmade German goods. There’s a tin toy shop, a glassblower’s studio, a store selling pewter mugs, and both wood- and leather-worker’s shops. The court also has a traditional Franconian wine cellar and a biergarten.
The Handwerkerhof was a fun way to spend part of our Sunday afternoon, and it was a good outing to combine with our visit to the oldest wurst restaurant in Germany, Zum Gulden Stern.
