Nuremberg's Events

In Nuremberg, one event follows another: The long nights of art & culture "Blue Night" and "Silvestival" have become as important a part of the event calendar as one-of-a-kind music festivals such as the Classic Open Airs, the Meeting of the Bards or and Rock im Park. Furthermore the traditional festivals and markets like the Nuremberg Fairs, the Old Town Festival or the famous Christkindlesmarkt draw thousands of visitors to Nuremberg every year.
