Amazing Advent

Festive Booths, Romantic Atmosphere, and Heavenly Bliss.

Franconia’s Cities present their most festive and joyous side in the weeks leading up to Christmas. Festive lights and the smell of hot, mulled wine, hand-made arts and crafts, and Christmas treats sweeten the anticipation of the holiday.

Franconia’s Christmas markets are just as varied, as are FRANCONIA’S CITIES. You have the world-famous “Nuremberg Christkindlesmarkt” as well as other charming and much lesser known markets. Take your pick among arts and crafts, medieval ambiance, Franconian, hot, mulled wine, and gingerbread beer. Advent is also a great time to enjoy concerts, Christmas-themed tours, manger walks, and any other conceivable way to get ready for the feast.

Welcome to Christmas Central

All eyes are on Nuremberg when the Christ Child opens “its” Christmas market on the main market square in town. Befitting for its centuries-old tradition, the Nuremberg Christkindlesmarkt to this day is a “city made of wood and cloth;” plastic or neon lights are not allowed. Near it is the “Kinder Christmas” for the little ones. It also is steeped in tradition and it is a wonderful place for children to play, make crafts, and pay Santa Claus a visit. 

A different kind of a Christmas ambassador is at work in Rothenburg ob der Tauber: the “Reiterle” (small horseback rider) is a sinister-looking character. But first impressions can be deceiving. This unusual Christmas character happily hands out gifts and treats to children. Rothenburg ob der Tauber enjoys a great reputation as a Christmas time destination in part because of the “Reiterlesmarkt.” But the city is also known as the location of the German Christmas Museum where you can celebrate Christmas year-round.
