Nuremberg Christmas Vibes


While in the city the other night I also did a quick walk through the historic center to capture some of the Christmas vibes of my hometown. All photos taken with the Olympus OM-D E-M1 and the mZuiko 12-100mm F/4. To see some more photographs continue after the jump…

Nuremberg has done a lot to turn the Old Town into a real Christmas city, also beyond the festive atmosphere of the historic Christmas market, and I thoroughly enjoy strolling through the beautifully lit alleys up to the Imperial Castle. It really gets me into the spirit. Tonight we’ll head downtown again, for a performance of The Significant Other and her brass choir, they will perform on the stage of the Christmas market at 5pm.

All photos taken in RAW and post-processed in Adobe Lightroom Classic CC.

Wish you a great Sunday!

  1. Seeing your wonderful photos of Nuremberg decorated for Christmas brings back nice memories. We have been lucky enough to have spent two Christmases in Germany and they were so very special. I hope your Christmas was everything you wished it to be.

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words, Karen. Glad you got to experience “our” way of celebrating Christmas, as I’m glad I got to experience one US and one South African Christmas many years back. Those experiences just broaden the horizons. We had a wonderful Christmas this year, hope yours was great as well. Happy New Year! Marcus

  2. Lovely pictures of a beautiful town. I missed our Christmas Market this year because of illness. Maybe next year. Wishing you and your family a wonderful holiday season and all the best for the New Year.

    1. Thanks, Carol, it means so much! Best wishes for a speedy recovery! And a marvelous, peaceful and merry Christmas to you and yours, as well as a prosperous and healthy 2019! Marcus

  3. Absolutely beautiful photos Marcus setting the scene for the big day. One of these days I’ll manage to see Noremberg for myself! We’re at home in northern England and it seems like it’s been raining for days! Most food and gift shopping now completed so relaxing with my husband and sons in a cosy, local pub for Sunday brunch. Enjoy your wife’s concert – what a talented family!

    1. Thanks, Marion, so much appreciated! Family Sunday brunch is awesome, we are having it right now at our home with my sister and her family! Hope to see you soon in Nuremberg! Happy Sunday! Marcus
