Children's Christmas Market

Have a holly, jolly Christmas: Lantern Parade, Children’s Christmas Market, post coach rides, nostalgic carousels and culture for kids are all part of the Nuremberg Christkindlesmarkt.

The festival of love and peace is a time made especially for children. So that the wait for Christmas Eve doesn’t seem quite as long, you can celebrate at the Children’s Christmas Market at the Hans-Sachs-Platz. Nostalgic carousels, a child-sized steam train and a post coach make their rounds; the Nuremberg Christkind makes an appearance; hands-on booths await creative little artists and the Sternenhaus offers a cultural program just right for children. A highlight each year: The lantern procession of the Nuremberg school children!

The irresistible scent of gingerbread, spices, mulled wine and roasting bratwurst fills the red and white rows of the Nuremberg Christkindlesmarkt. The culinary specialties on offer range from the famous Nuremberg bratwurst and gingerbread to Franconian beer to the largest “Feuerzangenbowle” in the world.
