Enjoyable Saturday's market
Jun 2021
There are several beautiful buildings around the square, amazing fountain and it is a really nice place but what made it unforgettable was a big market we visited there on Saturday with plenty of fruits and vegetable, authentic German food and surprisingly friendly and talkative people. It was a highlight of our visit in Nuremberg.

Pretty big Market

During usual days, this market which is located intl the center of the old town will be selling fruits and vegetables but during X'mas season, this market will be transformed into the main section of the well known Nuremberg X'mas market.

Famous square
Aug 2020
The Hauptmarkt ist the most central place in town. Best time to visit is when there is some kind of market actually going, be it the famous Christmas market in December or also one of the markets connected to the many festivals in town. On any other day, there are plenty of food stalls for fruit, vegetables and the like.

The square is surrounded, partially, be some lovely medieval buildings and churches. You can walk to pretty much any place in the old city center from here within a short notice.

Not recommended: to eat in a place in the immediate vicinity of the square. Most of those places are of the tourist trap variety.

Nice

There wasn't a marked when I was there. Can't remember the reason. The central square is still nice though even though it seems a bit empty without the stands.

Large Square
Dec 2019
The square is located in front of the Church of Our Lady and the Schoner Brunnen is on one side. It is one of the pictures that you see of Nurenberg.
We stopped by just after Christmas so they were dismantling the Christmas market. Because of that, we weren't able to look around the area too much.

A real busy market square
Mar 2020
The market appeared to be on everyday except Sunday. The stalls opened early and some were open till dusk. A place to wonder round at your leisure and take in the sight and hear the sounds. Fresh fruits along side dried fruits. Cheeses and dried meats and being offered here. Around the outside of the square, were shops, and ice-cream parlour, proving to be popular even though the weather was chilly and windy. A McDonalds, barkers. The market square is over looked by a church who's bells can be heard right round the market.
Whether to you to just look or you are looking for something to buy, it is well worth a visit.

Large Historic Market Square
Dec 2019
We were here during Christmas Market season, and so our only experience of the market was for that purposes. However, just on its own, this square is large and centrally-located within the old city of Nuremberg. It's really no more than a few minutes walk from all of the other major tourist sites, and there are numerous shops, cafes, and restaurants immediately surrounding the square.

Wonderful market
Jun 2019
We were there during strawberry and asparagus season - the smells in the market were amazing! So fun to be able to walk out of our hotel and shop for snacks and just take in all the sights, sounds and smells.
