Christmas markets in Nuremberg 2015

As every year, one of the world’s most famous Christmas markets are taking place during Advent in the center of Nuremberg on Hauptmarkt.

The aroma of sweet roasted almonds, of delicious Nuremberg Gingerbread Cookies, of mulled wine and of other German Christmas bakery is in the air during these four weeks.

The Christkindlesmarket is opened with a prologue by the Christkind and it’s believed that the prologue has not been changed since 1948. The Christkind is being chosen every year from hundreds of local girls and is a big honour for the lucky one.
