The World Famous Nuremburg X-mas Market - Schedule your most competitive priced Hotel now!
Europe's sprawling Christmas time markets continue to grow in worldwide popularity amongst travelers, and yet the Nuremberg Christmas Market easily ranks as the most legendary of the bunch. More than 200 merchants squeeze into timbered stalls in Hauptmarkt Square in the city's Old Quarter, offering for sale traditional products, from mulled wine and gingerbread to handmade Xmas tree angels, baubles and pieces ofjewelry.
Around two million holiday makers descend upon the Xmas market each and every year, drifting about stalls and, when it comes to youngsters, (and those at heart), enjoying children's rides such as a wooden Ferris wheel and steam train. Be sure to acquire just some of the marketplace's famous products, such as a tankard for mulled wine, and the Zwetschgenmännle, or "Little Prune People," small figures made of prunes. If you have not filled up on the spiced wine, satisfy your appetite with delectable treats such as Nuremberg sausages, potato pancakes as well as roasted almonds.
