Gingerbread and mulled wine are also part of the Nuremberg Christmas Market
“You men and women who once were children, be young again“, proclaims the "Christkind" when she welcomes guests to the Nuremberg Market Square for the opening of the Nuremberg Christkindlesmarkt. And she is right, because with a bit of childish enthusiasm over the Christmas tree decorations, tinsel angels, wooden nutcrackers, cribs and colored stars, you enjoy walking through the romantically lit Christmas Market twice as much.
Christmas City and the Sternenhaus for children
A Christmas city for children has been constructed at the Hans-Sachs-Platz. Visitors can bake cookies during the Children's Christmas or paint glasses, write a Christmas wish list to the 'Christkind' or ride on the roundabouts and the big wheel at the nostalgic fairground. The Sternenhaus in the freshly renovated Heilig-Geist-Saal offers a colourful programme of culture and storytelling all-around the Christmas Market.
The Market of the twin towns at the Christmas Market
Nuremberg is twinned with 13 cities, and has links of friendship with eight other municipalities. At the Rathausplatz to the north of the Market Square they bring an international flair to Nuremberg every year during the Christmas Market. The proceeds from sales of often home-made Christmas decorations go to charity organizations in the twin towns.
