Exclamation German Christmas Markets…

Weihnachten Markts…


I thought I would share with you some of the sights of winter and Christmas time in Germany. Almost every city has a Christmas Market. You can find delicious eats (glühwein, stollenkuchen, bratswurst, ect..) and special hand made gifts for your loved ones. Here are some of my favorite Weihnachten Markets.

I personally think Nürnberg’s is the nicest Christmas Market in Germany. With Dresden & Erfurt’s close behind. Strausbourg’s (France is also very nice) Many of the Christmas markets in and around my area (Bayern) are very nice. You really can not go wrong with visiting some of them. Kind of like the Beer… the Germans just don’t make bad beer! (or.. wine for that matter!) Get out there and try some!

My little sleepy village and its old Rathaus…


Coburg…


The grand old Rathaus…

Some of the huts…








On a side note… a good German friend of mine pointed out this famous flag maker of Coburg. This company supplied Hitler with all his top flags. Seems Hitler’s early years had its roots in Coburg.


One of the old clock towers of Coburg.


Nürnberg… der beste Christkindlesmarkt!

The famous fountain of Nürnberg






zwetschge menschen aka little prune men…







Back in the day…














Nürnberger Rostbratwürsten…


Sweets...







Gingerbread...



Bratwurst made out of Marzipan!




NussKrackers...








Nürnberg’s Christkind Angel… the symbol of the Christmas Market here…



The Frauen Church in the Market Platz…


Bears...









Schucco Models...









Nürnberg’s Kaiserburg (Castle)

And some sights of Nürnberg...




The famous Holly Ghost Restaurant in middle of photo…

Crowds…



A famous Christmas store…

The old Armory… today it’s a Polizei substation! lol


I would recommend you take the train to Nurnberg.


Munich…










Good luck pigs…









Rothenburg…

Rathaus…








Rothenburg’s famous “snow balls”…






Wurzburg…









Bamberg…
A local backery made to look like a ginger bread haus!















Salzburg, Austria…












Looks like Borat gives English lessons!









Looking down onto the Stadt of Salzburg...




You can see all of my German Christmas market photos here:

Those pics made me misty eyed and sooo homesick for my second home.....my best friends are still there and I wish I was back.......that being said I always liked Rothenburg the best, but Nurnburg's is great too...Nurnburger brats are the bomb...followed closely by ANY place's feuerwurst!

My girlfriend always tells me how amazing the Christmas markets in Europe are, thanks for sharing (even if it was 7 years ago).

We actually got some Gluhwein from Aldi last year, it was pretty good.

I'm excited to show her your pictures later so she can re-live some of those memories.

Yeah... I kind of found this old thread of mine today, so I decided to give it a "bump". I've been very lucky living over here in Germany and being able to sample the Christmas markets. I hear the Christmas Market in Chicago is also very nice and run by German venders.

My favorite Christkindlesmarkt is Nurnberg and Dresden and Rothenburg ob der Tauber. Also Munich has some very nice ones too(I think six or so! Even one at the airport!!). But Nurnberg's is the ONE for me. Here are some pics from Nurnberg taken two years ago. I went last year... but for some reason I just did not take many pics.


Zwetschgenmännle (prune men)... something that you only will find at the Nuremberg Christmas market are these little prune men figures. I always try to buy one or two each year. I think they are so classic.

Fakemike You and your GF should consider visiting Germany for a Christmas Market. You won't be disappointed!!

Now, onto my pics...

The imfamous "Kunst Bunker" where the Nazi's hid some of the art that they had stollen. There used to be a sign next to the read doors... that read... The only Bunker tested by the 8th AirForce(Allied) with seven direct hits and it still stood! lol
