Christmas Market in Nuremberg, Germany

The Christmas Market in Nuremberg was officially opened last Saturday Nov. 29, 2008. A Christmas market, also known as Christkindlmarkt, Christkindlesmarkt, Christkindlmarket, and Weihnachtsmarkt, is a street market associated with the celebration of Christmas during advent, mainly the four weeks preceding Christmas Day. These markets originated in Germany and Austria but are now being held in many other countries.

Nuremberg is known worldwide for its Christmas Market. Millions of visitors from different parts of the world visit this city to see and witness this famous event and celebration. I had been four times already in this place and really like it. I will be posting more photos next time. For now, I posted a photo which was taken during last year's visit. Christmas is almost here!! Wish you all a happy and joyous one!!
