In the heart of Bamberg (Bamberg), whose historic center is protected by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, two markets are set up, the classic Bamberg Christmas market and the more contemplative medieval Christmas market, in the enchanting setting of the old court. Bamberg’s famous nativity scene street is one of the main attractions: it crosses the whole city with about 35 “stations” and also includes nativity scenes in the traditional market.
