- Story Text: The Bavarian city of Nuremberg has opened its popular
annual Christkindlmarkt - or Christmas market - despite
Nuremberg's Christmas market, one of the most famous in
Europe, officially opened on Friday evening (November 29) as
angel appeared outside the Frauenkirche church, accompanied by
an orchestra playing Christmas carols.
Dozens of decorated stalls in the the town's main square,
the Hauptmarkt, invite visitors from across Europe and the
to enjoy the Christmas spirit as vendors sell traditional
gifts such as wooden toys, sweets and cakes.
"I hope that the Christmas market will be as nice again as
all the other years. The snow is missing," said one visitor.
The smell of Gluehwein (PRONOUNCED: gloo-vine) (mulled
wine) and the famous Nuremberg bratwursts (German sausages)
filled the air as young and old Christmas shoppers strolled
through the alley of stalls.
The Nuremberg Christkindlmarkt ends on Christmas Eve,
December 24, when Germans traditionally celebrate Christmas.
