The Christmas Markets in Germany are always magical and I have heard that the one in Nuremberg is spectacular. What's more we will be in Bavaria and can spend some time exploring one of the nearby traditional German towns. I am giving the option of either coming back on a Sunday and staying 2 nights or on the Monday and staying 3 nights for this trip.

The enticing aroma of gingerbread, mulled wine and grilled sausage hangs in the air at the Nuremberg Christkindlesmarkt. First mentioned in 1628, its roots probably go back to the time of Luther, when the tradition of giving children presents at Christmas evolved. Ever since then traditional wares such as handmade Christmas decorations and culinary treats have been offered by the 180 wooden stalls, decorated with red and white canvas. Take a stroll through the festively lighted lanes between the stalls and discover the enchantment of the unique atmosphere.

The Nuremberg Christkindlesmarkt not only places the greatest importance on offering traditional wares, but also on sustainable development. Thus environmental aspects are set on an equal par with social and economic aspects. For example, all mulled wine dealers work with a reusable cup system. This saves energy and avoids a large number of disposable containers. Furthermore, the Christkindlesmarkt has been supplied with regenerative energy from regional hydroelectric plants and photovoltaic power plants since 2012.

Don't forget the culinary delicacies the city of Nuremberg stands for. Whereas gingerbread has its peak season during the Christmas period, the finger-sized grilled sausages are eaten all year long. Equally worth trying is a crackling pork shoulder with a dumpling or a Franconian carp. A glass of Franconian wine or a cool beer can be drunk with the regional specialities at one of the private Franconian breweries.

Finer details
I am sure that travel will be ok again by Dec 2021 but just to be on the safe side I will make sure that any accomodation I book has free cancellation so we can get our money back if we can't go due to Covid 19. We will also book flights nearer the time. All I will need to secure your place on the trip is a £50 deposit which will come off the cost of the hoteld which look like they will be around £100 for 2 nights and £150 for 3. I am only asking for a deposit as a way of having your commitment before I spend a lot of my time researching the trip. Please book on if you are interested and I will be in touch.
