Tip on : Nurnberg - 5 years ago
Every year, people from all over the world visit what is probably Germany's most famous Christmas Market on Nuremberg's Main Market Square. On the Friday before the first Sunday in Advent, the Nuremberg Christmas Angel opens the market with her solemn prologue spoken from the gallery of Our Lady's Church. The Christmas Market with about 180 wooden booths deliberately restricts itself to traditional Christmas goods: spicy gingerbread, Zwetschgenmännle (little prune people), roast sausages, mulled wine, toys, Christmas decorations and arts and crafts attract about 2 million visitors to the market every year.All around the world-famous Christmas Market, a huge variety of other things get visitors in the Advent mood. This is why the German Tourist Office chose Nuremberg as Germany's "Number One Christmas City".
