Nuremberg Christmas Markets

Nuremberg Christmas Markets city breaks

Come and witness magic unfold in Bavaria’s second-largest city, with a city break to Nuremberg’s captivating Christmas markets. It’s a place where German kings once resided, museums provide a snapshot into railways and industries, and you can enjoy a jolly festive experience during the winter months. It’s time for Lebkuchen and Glühwein…   
Nuremberg Christkindlesmarkt (Nov-Dec)*

Nuremberg Christkindlesmarkt (Nov-Dec)*

Hauptmarkt Square is the place to be at Christmas. 180 stalls made of spruce are bedecked in very traditional style. This classic German market dates back to 1628 and sells all sorts. Think warming spiced drinks, German sweets, Prune Men children’s toys, and more whimsical wonders. The Christkind opens the market on the Friday before Advent, with a prologue.

Alongside the market, there’s another festive event to check out: Nuremberg Feuerzangenbowle. It’s all in aid of the warm, spiced wine and rum drink that literally translates as “Fire Punch”. Go on – try it, if you dare! Meanwhile, forget the classic Bratwurst – if you’re peckish, the local grilled sausages are minced with marjoram and go down a treat.

Within the tangle of colourful buildings and dominating spires, you can get a sense of Nuremberg’s past. It was once the unofficial capital of the Holy Roman Empire, and now nods to its fascinating history in the Stadtmuseum and Museum of German Cultural History. Picture this: panoramic views of snow dappling the rooftops as you stand in Nuremberg Castle’s top tower.
