Yesterday, a first blanket of snow covered our city, gone again today. But a clear sign of the coming winter, and just in time to the starting festive season.
Today is the traditional opening of Nuremberg’s famous christmas market, or Christkindlesmarkt, as it is called by the locals. It takes place in the weeks leading up to Christmas (Adventszeit) on the main market square in front of the famous Frauenkirche (built in the 14th century), the wooden stalls covered by roofs of red and white cloths.
For some more impressions continue after the jump…
The roots of the christmas market can be traced back to the 17th century, and its one of the biggest in the country, with about 2 million visitors annually.
I wish everyone a peaceful festive season, and a great weekend!
