It's a very small area with a few nice looking kellers (didn't look expensive) and a few handicraft shops selling wooden, leather etc goods. Doesn't take long to go round but not inspired and thought it would be much bigger. All done in 20 mins.

This area has gotten very touristy in the last 15 years. The items for sale are more expensive than they should be. You will find better and less expensive items in the market.

The shops are located in a castle tower,and have a magical atmosphere about them. The shops themselves have amazing handcrafted items, as well as some basic souvenirs. The people running the shops are very knowledgeable and friendly. Highly recommended.

This is directly across from the train station. Has a few little curio like shops and some little cute store selling cute handmade items. Not a destination but certainly worth a wee visit in passing.

It was lovely to see some hand made ‘craft’ but all too expensive. Felt a little overwhelmed by the owner of the metal/silver shop.

Very near the Hauptbahnhof, the Handwerkhof has lots of little craft shops, plus bars and restaurants, all with a local flavor. We especially like the little toy shop. Most of the toys are antique, and we have no idea where they acquire them, but we...More
