The Christ Child’s Home
Nuremberg is synonymous with Advent and Christmas markets. Christmas time is a special time in Nuremberg and it all starts with the Christ Child giving its prologue from the gallery in the Nuremberg Frauenkirche Church.
Nuremberg’s old town pulls out all the stops during Advent creating a magical Christmas experience. And in the middle of it all is the Nuremberg Christkindlesmarkt. One reason the market is so special is its location in front of the historical “Hauptmarkt,” the Frauenkirche Church, and the fountain, plus there is a wonderful view of the gothic Saint Sebald Church. The wares for sale refl ect the market’s tradition. Shop for traditional gold foil angels, wood and metal toys, Christmas decorations and tree ornaments. For an international experience, visit the Christmas market of Nuremberg’s sister cities at the Rathausplatz. Also, don’t miss the romantic carriage rides or the joyous Christmas concerts.
Nostalgia at the Nuremberg Kinder Christmas
Adjacent to the expansive Nuremberg Christkindlesmarkt is the wonderful Kinder Christmas on the Hans-Sachs-Platz. Children enjoy rides on a historical two-story carousel, a miniature Ferris wheel, and on a steampowered train. Lovingly decorated booths invite the little ones to actively participate. The wait for Christmas is further abbreviated by many events that are held at the “Sternenhaus.”
