Germany - Nuremburg - Christmas Market

by Kimp 6. January 2018 22:10
The smell of wine mulling, chestnuts roasting, and gingerbread baking. The taste of Original Nurenburger Sausage hot off the grill and the sight of hand painted Christmas Ornaments. Christmas is just around the corner and I am one of the 2,000,000 people who will visit Nurenburg this year, to partake of the atmosphere and meander through the 180 spruce stalls of German handcrafted goodness. The largest and most visited Christkindlesmarket (Christ Childs Market) in Germany. Besides German crafts, vendors from several countries, rent booths to pedle their wares. It starts on the Friday before the first Sunday in Advent and goes until Dec 24th, unless that is on a Sunday. [More]
