When you’re counting the days to Christmas and each door you open on the Advent calendar brings more suspense, it’s time for a visit to the Nuremberg Children’s Christmas Market … It will make the wait just a little bit easier!

A Special Experience for Families

Since 1999, the Children’s Christmas Market at the Hans-Sachs-Platz has welcomed families with children to a place with a special kind of magic – a miniature world straight out of a picture book! Just around the corner from the Christkindlesmarkt, a nostalgic carousel and child-sized steam train make their rounds and the stands offer Christmas delights perfect for children. Little ones can create their own tiny treats or artistic creations at the many fantastic hands-on booths – they can create and bake to their hearts’ content! It’s a Christmas fairy tale for the whole family! And a “heavenly” visitor also makes an appearance. From Tuesday to Friday at 2:30 pm, the Christkind invites children for a free ride on the steam-driven carousel.
