Christkindlesmarkt in Nürnberg Posted by Transparent Language on Dec 2, 2008 in Holidays
Grüß Gott, und herzlich willkommen to the newly established German blog!
I have been given the wonderful opportunity to take you on a journey through one of my favorite countries; Germany. It is with great excitement that I wish to share with you some insights about this beautiful country I grew up next to, and have lived in for 6 years. Of course, I have moved to the Vereinigten Staaten for quite some time now, and although I am fluent in German; I am a bit rusty. Nevertheless, I do go back every other year to visit my favorite places.
During my stay in Deutschland, I have come to appreciate the kindness and hospitality of the people that crossed my path. Später, I will tell to you more about my upbringing and experiences related to Germany. Aber was heute anbetrifft, I’d like to tell you about the Christmas season in Germany; since it is right around the corner!
So, if you are planning to visit Germany during the month of December, be sure to check out the Christmas market, or Weihnachtsmarkt, also known as Christkindlesmarkt in Nürnberg. I have no doubt that there are many great Weihnachtsmärkte throughout Deutschland, but I do have especially fond memories of the one in Nuremberg. I can still remember the enticing smells of Glühwein, Lebküchen (especially the Schokolade -covered ones) and Knacks und Pommes, but mostly, I remember the Altstadt and the beautifully crafted Christmas ornaments hanging from the little wooden stalls packed together auf dem Hauptplatz.
I have done some research for you, and found this great website. It should give you all the information you need about the Nuremberg Christmas market. It is written in German, but the site allows you to change the content to different languages. http://christkindlesmarkt.de/ Schauen Sie sich mal herum und sagen Sie mir bitte was Sie davon denken.
Also dann, alles Gute und bis zum nächsten Mal!
