Thinking about going on a Christmas Market Coach trip? If the answer is yes, we would like to suggest that you choose the Christmas Market in Nuremberg. Here’s why:
The Christmas markets in Nuremberg date back to 1628. It is held in the main market square and has more than 180 stalls, 30 of which date back to 1890.
The Gingerbread is Amazing
The gingerbread known as Lebkuchen locally dates back to the 13th century and is sold in decorated tins. Grab one at the Main Market Square on Plobenhof 6.
Go for the Grilled Sausages
The history of the grilled sausages dates back to 1497 and is spiced by marjoram. Try the “Original Nuremberger” that weighs 23 grams and is as long and as thick as your finger. The best way to eat these grilled sausages is to squeeze mustard and other sauces.
Get the Gluhwein
Get the blueberry gluhwein by Gerstacker as it is the perfect drink for cold weather. The drink has been selling for the past 35 years and is a specialty of the city.
There are more than 180 stalls in the Christmas market, which means that you have a number of things to choose from. Other than the main market, there are a number of markets that are spread all over the place. Make sure that you explore them and get the souvenirs that you want to take back for your family and friends.
