St. Lawrence Square is the hub of our beautiful Nuremberg. Here, history meets hustle and bustle. The area around St. Lawrence Church, one of the oldest and most impressive buildings in the city and a symbol of it, is always full of life. There’s always something going on here. That’s not only because it is located next to the main shopping streets which are the center of Nuremberg’s retail sector. St. Lawrence Square is a meeting place in the truest sense of the word. Who hasn’t said “let’s meet in front of St. Lawrence”? No wonder, because it’s the perfect spot to go on in all directions.
But you don’t have to go too far, because the neighborhood itself is full of possibilities: culinary variety and cultural highlights. Despite the busy commercial traffic in the nearby banks and shops, St. Lawrence Square can be a cozy place. With the creation of more green spaces, the area invites you to relax awhile. And one thing is certain: There will always be at least one busker making music while you visit St. Lawrence Square.
In the cozy wooden Christmas hut in front of the church of St. Lawrence, you can enjoy a homemade eggnog or delicious blueberry mulled wine from Gerstacker on a damp and cold day. The romantic open fireplace in this rustic cabin creates a wonderful atmosphere – and when the sun happens to shine while you’re Christmas shopping, there are plenty of places to stand outdoors and enjoy a warm beverage or two in the festively decorated pedestrian area.
