If there walk through it, and read the signs. If walking further there are some great restaurants with cheaper options than marketplace.

It is the center of the city – if you walk from Porta Nigra to Hauptmarktplatz, on the right, a little short, between Judengasse and Jakobstrasse you see the quarter that, over eight centuries ago, was the Jewish quarter and into which was led the...More

Not much to see. All Jews in this area killed in pogroms by Christians during Black Plague. All houses replaced 400 years later in 1800s. But it still has a haunting feel, as you walk down this little alleyway that was once the back entrance...More
