Nuremberg Travel Tip:
Craftsmen Courtyard (Handwerkerhof)

Craftsmen Courtyard (Handwerkerhof)
Crafts Yard (Handwerkerhof), Nuremberg

Right in the middle of Nuremberg's city, surrounded by the towers and walls of the medieval city fortification, the Crafts Yard (Handwerkerhof) invites Nuremberg' guests on an exciting stroll. This little town near the Königstor, opposite the Main Railway Station offers traditional crafts and Franconian hospitality in a charming atmosphere. It is quite astonishing what you can discover in those little workshops, shops and lanes: craftsmen such as pewterers, bag-makers, glass engravers, potters, wax artists, gold and silversmiths, glass painters, gingerbread bakers and doll makers have set up their workshops and show their skills in pretty half-timbered houses.

Hospitality and cosy Franconian atmosphere can also be found in the Crafts Yard: the famous Nuremberg roast sausages and other savoury Franconian specialities are best washed down with a tankard of fresh Nuremberg beer or a glass of Franconian wine.

Hours: Shops: Monday to Friday 10am - 6pm, Saturday 10am - 4pm. Taverns: Monday to Saturday 10:30am - 10pm. Closed on Sundays and on public holidays. Open during the Christmas Market daily from 10am - 6pm. Please note that the area is closed from January until March 13.

"I am an Australian visitor to Nuremberg and would like to find a needlework supplier and see some local needlework. Can you suggest where I could find somewhere" (posted 05/03/2016)

I'm afraid this question can not be answered satisfactorily. It would be good to know exactly what is being sought. A supplier lasting relationships? Traditional craftsmanship? Traditional Costumes? For Trachtenmode there are, among others, these two shops: Especially for embroidery etc. there is only modern craft enterprises / Alterations. That's probably not meant by this request. Regards, dominik rope head PS: Sorry for the late reply. Was last night specially still ask at the tourist information.
