You’ve heard of Berlin, you’ve been to Frankfurt, but where you should really be going this season is Nuremberg. Known for its controversial history and storybook-esque winding streets, it’s a mixed bag of a city that’ll leave you reeling but desperate to return. The Altstadt (Old Town) is still surrounded by walls, while inside you’ll find plenty of art galleries, museums, and churches. Not many cities can offer such a variety of experiences, and Nuremberg’s “Nürnberger Christkindlesmarkt” (that’s “Christmas market”) offers everything from mulled wine (try the blueberry flavour) to trinkets, Christmas decorations, and more. Go along for the bratwurst and stay for the Bavarian charm. If you’ve got a sweet tooth, the “Nürnberger Lebkuchen” (sweet gingerbread) is a must-try. Keep an eye out for the decorative cookies lining the many stalls in the market!
