The oldest buildings are located on him with the Church of our Lady and the beautiful Fountain. A richly equipped and very interesting weekly market takes place on weekdays. Probably why he is rightly largely pedestrian. On the stands and market stalls can be found not only commercially available everyday goods, but "infinitely more", for example also tasty snacks, fancy dishes and fresh drinks. A special pleasure for us was a watch that is called "Man flax running" because every day at 12: 00 walk recreated electors in the district. Above all and of course because of the uniqueness of their name it became a sought-after and attractive tourist attraction in Nuremberg.
