While today it is pouring down once more, yesterday was a glorious December Saturday. Although we are far from having any snow (and the temperatures felt more like spring) it was still a special atmosphere on Nuremberg’s famous Christmas Market, the “Christkindlesmarkt” as it is called locally. It takes place in the four weeks leading up to Christmas (Adventszeit) on the main Market Square in front of the famous Frauenkirche (built in the 14th century). For more impressions continue reading after the jump…..
I strolled a bit between the wooden stalls before and after the visit of the concert of a trombone choir in St. Sebald Church (will do a separate post about this), so enjoying the unusual bright winter sun first and the evening atmosphere afterwards.
Sure I bought myself a good “3 im Weckla” (3 in a bun), a roll with the famous Nuremberg Bratwurst. Standing in the sun eating I shot this image above with the other (I had the PEN-F with the mZuiko 75mm f/1.8 with me).
Plenty visitors used the opportunity to shop for Christmas decorations in the many stalls.
When the blue hour came I switched to the 12mm f/2.0 lens to capture the atmosphere between the wooden stalls with the famous red and white striped rooftops.
The dropping temperatures were countered with some more Bratwurst and a mug of steaming mulled wine (Glühwein).
Have a great Sunday!
