Tour 4: LICENSED PRODUCTS at the Christkindlesmarkt
The “Little Town of Cloth and Wood”, wonderfully lit in the dusk, decorated with the logo of the Christkindlesmarkt: This and other postcards may be purchased at Tourist Information at Hauptmarkt 18. Those who stayed at home can enjoy a glimpse of the market or you can keep one yourself as a reminder of your visit.
Our first booth on the tour is Stand 127. There, Tina Wendrich offers a pendant with a close-up of the logo of the Nuremberg Christkindlesmarkt. The silver charm hung on a red cord is lovingly created by hand from sterling silver. It is a high-quality souvenir, which can be worn year-round.
If you like to eat sweets or want something small to take home for children from the Christkindlesmarkt, you’ll find delicious treats as licensed products right next door at the stand of Mahmut Kayhan (Booth 126). Part of his product line are official Christkindlesmarkt bonbons and lollipops. Just right for Christmas time, they taste of gingerbread spice and are handmade and personalized with a wooden charm.
The next licensed product can be found diagonally opposite at Booth 122. The Soap Manufactory of Susanne Schleicher from Fürth has created a special soap with a gingerbread scent and Christkindlesmarkt logo just for the market. There are also soap dishes with the Christkindlesmarkt logo.
Mark your packages, letters and gifts with a very special stamp: Charlotte Grunow (Booth 114) offers a stamp kit with the silhouette of the Christkindlesmarkt. Those who wish to be creative can work with a stamp pad or sealing wax or choose a seal as a sticker.
Directly across from her is Booth 110 from Arndt Tennie. His delicate paper stars are a perfect small Christmas decoration for your tree or home. They are also an official licensed product of the Nuremberg Christkindlesmarkt. They are available in many different shapes and colors; each star is one-of-a-kind.
Nuremberg Christkindlesmarkt punch from Wurzelsepp can be found at Booth 89 from Philipp Rank. It is a tea composition which tastes wonderful all year long and contains cinnamon and a fantastic mix of fruits. The tea is available in 100- or 250-gram packages in an aroma-sealing bag.
A stroll past wooden accessories and Belgian pralines leads us to Booth 68. To keep you warm in wintertime, Andrea Ruppert-Fröhling offers a Christkindlesmarkt scarf. Wonderfully warm and soft, it is made from Merino wool and is a great Christmas gift for all Christkindlesmarkt fans.
Wolfgang Marx also has very special licensed products. In addition to gingerbread balls and chocolate products from his own workshop, there are chocolate gold coins with the logo of the Christkindlesmarkt at Booth 52. If you feel hungry for something sweet while exploring the market, you’re sure to find something special in the assortment from Marx Chocolates.
One of the highlights of Advent are homemade baked goods. Everyone can make stars and hearts, but the Christkindlesmarkt cutter from Petra Strauß at Booth 53 really stands out. The Christkind and its signature was created in cooperation with the Stædter Company. As the cutter is made from stainless steel and dishwasher-safe, the joy and memories will last for many years.
One can take home the Nuremberg Christkindlesmarkt with the Church of Our Lady, Beautiful Fountain and Christkind as a decoration. Sieglinde Janoschke in Booth 40 offers a Christkindlesmarkt tea light made from real wood veneer in light-colored beech, fine mahogany or dark cherry. With a small candle, you’ll light up the miniature scene and the eyes of children and adults.
