European Christmas Markets

The Show: Nuremberg

Next we come to Nuremberg, home of the most famous Christmas Market in Germany. With its Franconian location and traditional Christmas Market, it is constantly packed with visitors.

We learn of the history of the city and take a look at its Castle above the walled Old Town. Then we visit the glorious Christmas Market, and learn of its traditions and its special products, including gingerbread, Nuremberg sausages, angels and figures made of prunes and nuts in Franconian dress! The market is filled with beautiful Christmas decorations. We leave as a local community band serenades the crowd with a Christmas carol.
