After we have already introduced the most beautiful Christmas Markets in Munich and Vienna in our last blog article, we would like to continue festively also this week. Get inspired by our atmospheric recommendations in order to come into the right mood for the most wonderful time of the year:
Nuremberg Christkindlesmarkt (1.12. – 24.12.2017)
All the enthusiasts of the original Nuremberg bratwursts and the world famous gingerbread will find the correct address with the Nuremberg Christkindlesmarkt, for sure. The traditional delicacies have not only been tried and trusted for more than 70 years, but also have organic quality and can thereby be enjoyed with a good conscience. Moreover, the Christmas Market cares about energy efficiency measures and about products from regional artisanal production and partly still even uses the booths from the year 1890. An attraction of a very special kind is, without doubt, a round trip in the historic, yellow mail coach. Tickets can be bought at the Christmas post office, where you can additionally let your Christmas post get equipped with the exclusive Christkindlesmarkt special stamp which will make a collector’s heart leap for joy. North of the central market, on the Townhall Square, adventurous visitors will be welcomed by the Market of twin cities. Here, booths from Turkey, the US, from Cuba, China, Sri Lanka, Greece and many more countries offer art handicrafts from all over the world as well as authentic culinary delicacies. If you would like to enjoy an international Christmas atmosphere and extraordinary gift ideas, you will surely make a find here. On the Hans-Sachs-Platz behind the central market, there is an extra Nuremberg children’s Christmas Market. A steam carousel, a railway and a small giant wheel will delight the youngest. Moreover, an own bakery, a candle making factory and the Christ Child are waiting to enchant the kids.
Frankfurt Christmas Market (27.11. – 22.12.2017)
The Townhall Square, also called Römerberg, located in the centre of Frankfurt’s old town, forms an atmospheric setting for one of the biggest Christmas Markets in Germany. In the middle of the historic Frankfurt Christmas Market, a giant Christmas tree ablazes the old town in a festive light. Creatively decorated booths offer traditional Frankfurt pastries, like for example “Bethmännchen”, “Brenten” and “Quetschemännchen”. Aside from numerous Advent concerts, an atmospheric nativity play and the traditional brass music, also a nostalgic Christmas carousel is waiting for the kids. The absolute highlight, however, presents the worldwide unique “Frankfurt Großes Stadtgeläute”. The overall 50 bells of all ten inner-city churches will strike up a half-hour Christmas concert on the 2nd and 24th of December together.
