Nuremberg’s Christkindlesmarkt opens, one of Germany’s oldest Christmas fairs

One of Germany’s oldest and best known Christmas markets opened its doors in the Bavarian city of Nuremberg.

The so-called Christkindlesmarkt (Christ child’s market) opened at 5:30 p.m. (1630 GMT), with 17-year-old Nuremberg high school student Rebecca Ammon dressed as an angel reciting the traditional proclamation.

On the eve of the first weekend of Advent, marking the start of the Christmas season, some 180 decorated stalls invited visitors to enjoy the Christmas spirit as vendors sell traditional gifts such as wooden toys, sweets and cakes.

Nuremberg, some two hours by car north of Munich, is best known for its Christkindlesmarkt and Nuremberg Bratwurst, a sausage made of pork loin, a hit with visitors at the Christkindlesmarkt.
