Nuremberg Christmas Markets

This post is also available in: Portuguese (Portugal)

The city of Nuremberg is famous for its Christmas market, the Nürnberger Christkindlesmarkt. Alongside the traditional Christmas Market, Nuremberg offers one of the largest pedestrian zones in Europe, with the streets lit for the celebration and the Christmas Market of the Child. The wonderful “Nativity trail” linking the two markets. The Town Hall Square (Rathausplatz), nearby to the Christmas market (Christkindlesmarkt), is home to a small group of international stands that offer products from several sister cities of Nuremberg and the regions linked to it by ties of friendship.


Dates of the Christmas Market:
Usually end of November – December

Nuremberg contains a lovely medieval old town (Altstadt), surrounded by impressive defensive walls. The city is home to interesting museums and beautiful medieval churches. If you are visiting the city with children do not miss a visit to the Museum of Toys (Spielzeugmuseum) and to the Museum of Transport (Verkehrmuseum) with a spectacular model railway with hundreds of toy trains.
