Nürnberg is famous for its prune people.
6) Wear fingerless gloves
Christmas markets can get hold and a great way to warm up is with a mug of Glühwein. I recommend fingerless gloves (with or without a mitten flap cover – the choice is yours) to make the cup easier to hold and to take photos while keeping your hands warm.
7) Check the Schedule in Advance for Special Christmas Events
German Christmas Markets often have entertainment – think choirs, Christmas plays, puppet shows, and German traditions, to name a few of the things you might get lucky enough to see.
For example, in Munich, the Krampus Run is held in December near the oldest and largest Christmas market in Munich. It’s a 500-year old tradition of Saint Nicholas and his mythological companion, Krampus, who resembles a monster, or a character from Fraggle Rock.
