The Lights Of Nuremberg

Year after year, Nuremberg becomes the city of light, decorated with a great deal of electric lamps. In this German city, everything reminds you of a carnival.

On Friday, the eve of Advent (late November), on the main town square is the official opening of the holiday market. That role belongs to a belle chosen out of a variety of beautiful girls from Nuremberg, the Dürer‘s city. This, however, is not the only attraction of Nuremberg!

Precisely one hundred and eighty “wooden” boys participate in a walk on the square in front of the Frauenkirche – Our Lady’s Church. To the general delight of guests, who gather here from all over the world, they only sell traditional things. A variety of scents and aromas lure the guests to taste the local cuisine. In addition to many New Year’s decorations, art crafts and toys, delicious culinary specialties are also offered. Gingerbread is a real specialty and genuine souvenir of the city. Even in the middle ages, Nuremberg was famous for the spice trade. What once was very expensive today, fortunately, is an integral part of New Year’s celebration. In the end, what would a mulled wine be without cinnamon or cloves? Beside roasted almonds and sweet bread, crispy fried Nuremberg sausages with sauerkraut or asparagus are a must-try.

The historical sites are the Church of Our Lady, a central fountain, two Gothic churches – St. Lorenz and St. Sebaldus. Nuremberg is also the hometown of Albrecht Dürer, and today his house is a very much visited museum.

The picturesque building, erected above Pegnitz River flowing through Nuremberg, was built in the period from 1332 until 1339, as an endowment for the elderly and disabled persons. “Historical Room”, the most important part of the old town house, is used for receptions, concerts and various celebrations – for example New Year’s concert of the Nuremberg Symphony Orchestra. On the main square, on the New Year’s Eve you can buy all types of dried fruit.

The symbol of Nuremberg is the imperial castle Kaiserburg, which stretches through the city. Today it is a museum which holds a lot of historical values.
