Nuremberg’s Christmas Market

6 Dec

Nuremberg has one of Germany’s largest and most popular Christmas Markets. The Christkindlesmarkt (Christ Child Market) has been celebrated in Nuremberg during the advent season since the middle of the 17th century.  A visit is the perfect way to get into the Christmas spirit while wandering through the alleys and admiring the sweets, toys, and decorations adorning close to 200 red-and-white snow covered stalls.  If you have a sweet tooth, I would recommend trying a large gingerbread cookie (Lebkuchen), one of Nuremberg’s traditional Christmas specialties.

For those who cannot make it, I’ve posted a few pictures below.

For those in the area, here is the link to the official website for practical information: Nuremberg Christmas Market’s English website.
