Come on along for some more sight-seeing in Nuremberg . . .
The Christmas Angel opens Nuremberg’s famous Christkindlesmarkt on Hauptmarkt square in the old quarter. Medieval charm surrounds you along with the aroma of gingerbread, Nuremberg bratwurst and glühwein.
A Christmas Pyramid (German: Weihnachtspyramide) is a Christmas decoration that has its roots in th Erzgebirge (Ore Mountains) of Germany, but has become popular throughout the country. It is suggested that the Christmas pyramid is a predecessor of the Christmas tree
The Frauenkirche (in English, "Church of Our Lady") is one of the churches in Nuremburg. It stands on the eastern side of the main market. An example of brick Gothic architecture, it was built on the initiative of Charles IV, Holy Roman Emperor between 1352 and 1362.
Schöner Brunnen (beautiful fountain) is a 14th Century fountain located on Nuremburg's main market next to the town hall and is considered one of the main attractions of the city's Historical Mile. The fountain is approximately 19 meters high and has the shape of a Gothic spire.
Lebkuchen has been mentioned in an earlier post, but it bears repeating ! Some has a cake-like texture but my favorite has a chewy inside with a crusty outside and a fondant-type icing on the bottom. It is especially tasty when eaten warm and with a cup of hot Glühwein.(Pronounced "glowvine" . . . or something like that.)
Glühwein is a hot mulled wine, semi-sweet with lots of spices.
