There is much to discover in Nürnberg. Numerous listed buildings are full of medieval charm mixed in with baroque architecture. Moreover, during December the Christkindlesmarkt, one of Germany's most famous and most popular Christmas markets, takes place.

We will have a guided tour through the Christkindlesmarkt and after some free time to walk through the market and maybe to have one cup of Glühwein, a traditional German hot wine punch, we will have dinner in a traditional Bavarian-Franconian restaurants nearby.


START: Monday, expected departure time: 16:00
