Christkindlesmarkt (Christmas market) in Nuremberg, Germany

Nuremberg is a city in the state of Bavaria, Germany. It is one of the cities in Germany which is famous for its Christkindlesmarkt or Christmas market. This event is held every year in the Hauptmarkt or Main market where some of its famous sights like Schöner Brunnen (Beautiful Fountain) and Frauenkirche (Church of Our Lady) are also located.

Around two millions of guests and visitors from all over the world and nearby towns and cities visit this event every year. Fascinating handmade ornaments and delicacies are also well known in this Christmas market. Don't forget to taste the Nuremberg Bratwurst (sausage) and savor the warm Glühwein (mulled wine) to keep you warm during this cold winter time.
