Christkindlesmarkt is a Christmas market that is held annually in Nuremberg, Germany. It takes place during Advent in the Hauptmarkt, the central square in Nuremberg’s old town, and in adjoining squares and streets. With about two million visitors a year the Nürnberger Christkindlesmarkt is one of the largest Christmas markets in Germany and one of the most famous in the world. Every year the Christmas market begins on the Friday preceding the first Sunday in Advent and ends on December 24, unless that day is a Sunday.
Spent a few hours walking around the square and surrounding areas. Had coffee in a shop overlooking the square and is a great place for people watching as the place really gets packed. Love the open air market with food and so many beautiful flower venders. Had a stage set up with a music and comedy festival going on when I was here and o had a lovely time stirring by the fountain eating and drinking from several different food trucks and listening to the music. If your in the area it’s defiantly worth passing through to see what’s going on.
Great German city with interesting history - in particular, the Kaisersburg castle museum explains and celebrates a lot of the past several centuries. The experience was very much enjoyed by all age groups within our party.
Visiting the Christmas market was the main purpose of my trip here from the UK. The are Christmas markets in the UK too of course but they have a very different vibe. Here it was a relaxed atmosphere, child and anyone friendly. The stalls had a good selection of sausage, mulled wine, crepes and all the other goodies you could want. Also there are lots of hand crafts and interesting bits. Really enjoyed it and would come back.
Biggest Christmas market I have ever been to. The market just keeps going on and on and on. They had a lot of fun handmade items. They even have a section of items from all over the world. Food is delicious as well. The village is just beautiful this time of year.
Very big. Very crowded. A nice market for sure but far from my favorite. I went during the week, during the day, and it was still packed. Very good variety of shops, stalls, and food.
