Welcome to the Nuremberg Christkindlesmarkt
The traditional part of the market with its arts, crafts and creative gifts remains on the Main Market Square. Culinary specialties and unique gifts can be found on the squares around the Churches of St. Lorenz and St. Jakob. On Insel Schütt, the Sister Cities’ Market will bring international flair. A stroll through the romantic lanes of the Old Town will make your visit to the Christmas City of Nuremberg complete.
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! The enticing smells of mulled wine and rum punch, roasted almonds, Nuremberg bratwurst and gingerbread fill the air. Friday before the first Sunday in Advent is the day it all begins as the Nuremberg Christkind opens the world-famous Nuremberg Christkindlesmarkt.
From then until Christmas Eve, the "little town of wood and cloth" will shine in the heart of Nuremberg’s Old Town and turn it into “Christmas City”. More than 180 market stands – all decorated for Christmas with fresh greens and lights – invite you to enjoy traditional Christmas ornaments of all shapes and sizes, the local gold-foil angel, “Zwetschgenmännle” made of prunes, toys and games and delicious holiday treats to eat and drink.
Come and experience this one-of-a-kind atmosphere and enjoy the magic of the Nuremberg Christmas Market!
