Welcome to Nuremberg: Germany’s Christmas City
Gingerbread, Christkindlesmarkt, Children’s Christmas Market and Unforgettable Moments
There are 1001 reasons to fall in love again and again with Nuremberg at Christmastime. For some, it’s the delicious smell of exotic spices in the world-famous Nuremberg gingerbread. For others, it’s the Christmas Market itself, where shiny Christmas ornaments, hand-made gold-foil angels, prune men or wooden nativity figures and nutcrackers draw the eye. Concerts attract fans of holiday music, exclusive boutiques and shops with unusual gift ideas invite you to shop ‘til you drop and the whole family can enjoy the Children’s Christmas Market and “Sternenhaus” children’s theater and music center.
If you’re in luck, it will be snowing as you stroll through the city, which sparkles with twinkling lights. You can pause on one of the many bridges over the river and watch the snowflakes falling gently down on to the roofs of the century-old houses. A familiar Christmas tune may drift through the air, making the scene complete. These are memories that will last a lifetime.
