Nuremberg Gingerbread, Potato Pancakes and Bratwurst
Nuremberg Bratwurst with their typical scent of marjoram can only be produced within the Nuremberg city limits and according to a specially-defined recipe. At the Christmas Market you will mainly find them as “Drei im Weckla”, three sausages in a white roll. In the sausage kitchens you’ll find near the market, they will be served freshly grilled on a pewter plate with horseradish or sauerkraut –accompanied by freshly-tapped Franconian beer. Nuremberg Lebkuchen are also an origin-protected product and as Nuremberg’s #1 Christmas export, they are a can’t-be-missed treat at the Nuremberg Christmas Market.
Crispy-fried “Baggers”, the Franconian version of the potato pancake, are also on offer. The Christkindlesmarkt is an oasis for fans of sweet treats and baked goods: fresh waffles with powdered sugar, crêpes, Christmas-stollen and crunchy pretzels are available around every corner.
At the edge of the Christkindlesmarkt, you can experience the largest Feuerzangenbowle – a red wine and rum punch – in the world. Across from the historical city hall, local growers and producers from Franconia, the Upper Palatinate and Thuringia offer high-quality traditional regional specialties.
