No need to Fly to the North Pole, go to Nuremberg for Christmas

In winter, many tourists usually try to escape the cold going far away to cozy tropical islands. I, however, have a tendency of traveling from the cold New York City to even colder cities during the winter. From these cold and at times freezing cities I bring back especially warm memories. Being back in Nuremberg for the second time around during the winter I’ve remembered the good time I had here a year a go.

By the time I arrived at the city, Christmas hasn’t passed; therefore visiting the fair located between small winding streets leading to the old town – “the city center” – was essential. Where once stood the fall market with its lively colors, live music, and good beer, was now a Christmas wonderland. The fair was full of people eating excellent food, spending time with their kids, riding fun decorative rides, and shopping at some spectacular holiday booths.

Holidays spent in Germany are very special. The country celebrates Christmas to the fullest, and for that reason visiting a Christmas market (in any German city) is going to be memorable.

Things to note during the holidays:
  • last day for the market is December 23rd.
  • all stores (including groceries) stay closed till the 26th, reopening in the morning of the 27th. So, stack up on food and everything you need.
  • family owned restaurants or small local businesses tend to be closed till mid-January. So, plan in advance.
