Tasty treats to enjoy in Nuremberg
Nürnberger Bratwürste is a Nuremberg speciality that you must try when in the city. These slim, char-grilled sausages are usually served in a bun and are often served in high-end restaurants as well as street stalls. Another savory specialty to try is the Nürnberger Klösse (potato dumplings) that soak up your meat sauces delectably!
How about a sweet treat to finish off? Lebkuchen, similar to gingerbread, is available all year-round but gives you a taste of Christmas with their honey-sweetened, lightly spiced flavouring.
Christmas market memories
Nuremberg’s Christmas Market goes back to the 16th century and is widely considered the most famous in the world. The market is locally known as Christkindlesmarkt, and is a major seasonal highlight. It takes place in the Hauptmarkt, the central square in Nuremberg’s old town, and makes for a tasty scrum of spiced mulled wine, roasted almonds and chocolates.
After you’ve bought a souvenir for the folks back home, you shouldn’t miss the delicious treats at the market! Original Nuremberg gingerbread and Nuremberg bratwurst are a must, of course. On Hans-Sachs-Platz there’s a Christmas City just for children. At the Children’s Christmas Market, little visitors can bake cookies, paint glass, write their Christmas wish list or take a ride on the nostalgic carousel or Ferris wheel.
