Holiday baked goods are always tempting – but sometimes you need something that really satisfies your hunger. Then just follow your nose: Let the irresistible smell of freshly grilled sausages lead you to the next bratwurst stand. When in Nuremberg, the world-famous bratwurst are a not-to-be-missed pleasure. You can enjoy them with sauerkraut, potato salad or as two- or three-in-a-bun, the “Weggla”.
In Germany, when you think of Christmas, you think of Nuremberg Lebkuchen. These sweet and spicy treats have been baked for more than 600 years.
If the cold starts to creep into your bones as you stroll through the market and Jack Frost starts nipping at your nose, there’s only one thing that helps: a cup of hot mulled wine.
The largest “Feuerzangenbowle” in the world
The “Feuerzangenbowle” – a red wine and rum punch – is the queen of winter parties. The name comes from the tongs which holds a burning, rum-soaked sugar cone over the punch bowl. The sugar melts, is caramelized and drips into the wine below, giving the “Feuerzangenbowle” its special flavor.
