This year, the Nuremberg Christmas Markets run from 1 December 2017 to 24 December 2017. With direct flights from London Gatwick (LGW) to Nuremberg (NUE) starting on 30 November 2017, fly to this magical Christmas destination until 7 January 2018, from a choice of four different days. Hop on the metro and arrive to the centre in around 20 minutes.
Enjoy the second-largest Bavarian city, brimming with history, red-roof architecture and moreish pretzels. Set in the mesmerising medieval old town square of Hauptmarkt, smell the aroma of ginger bread, see Christmas decorations twinkle and feel the warmth of delicious mulled wine. The Nuremberg Christmas Market is endearing, traditional and Germany’s favourite.
Venture to Nuremberg Castle, see the turret and wander through the corridors, up staircases or through the crisp, cold, wintery gardens. In the season of festivity and gift-giving, take a look around the curious Nuremberg Toy Museum. Savour the flavour of a German beer and socialise around the Tiergartnertor Platz in the evening, like a local.
