Nuremberg Christmas Market

After an introductory guided walking tour of Nuremberg, you are free to visit the Christkindlmarkt, one of the most prestigious and atmospheric Christmas Markets in the world. Its brightly coloured stalls radiate from the Market Square in the Old Town with the unmistakable aromas of Advent in Germany, filling the city with an incredible festive atmosphere. Also, be sure to admire the city's other attractions. These include the Kaiserburg Fortress, which is the centrepiece of Nuremberg's beautiful medieval architecture - encircled
within the city walls of the Old Town - and the Handwerkerhof, or Craftsmen's Courtyard. Located in the middle of the city it is surrounded by the towers and walls of the medieval fortifications. A little town of its own, here you can discover workshops and shops from craftsmen such as pewter workers, glassmakers, engravers, potters, gold and silversmiths, and many more.
