Places to visit in Nuremberg. Languages: en, he, ru

Instead of the demolished houses of the Jewish ghetto, two significant marketplaces were created. The primary market was initially called "Green Market" or "Big Market." Trade developed well, and, being an imperial city, Nuremberg attracted many merchants from the south and north of Germany. So the tradition of large fairs began to appear. The largest fest usually took place before Christmas Eve during Advent. The tradition of miniatures is associated with Christmas figures of people and images present in the Milk Cave, where Jesus was born. Over time, this tradition spread to furniture, objects, half-timbered houses, and everything that can be depicted in miniature from everyday life. The feature of drawing modern images and objects became most popular during the development of Protestantism when depicting saints was forbidden.

Здравствуйте! Добро пожаловать в мои экскурсии! Я как-то понял, что погулять с каждым я не успею, гулять в группах мало кому сейчас хочется, а гулять «вслепую» быстро становится скучно. Так и появилась идея записывать маршруты и создавать полноценные путеводители, которые я здесь собираю. Если вы попали сюда, значит вам нужен ключик, чтобы открыть маршрут – пожалуйста! Напишите мне сообщение на телефон +972 537907561 или на и я с радостью вам помогу! Иначе, зачем я всё это делаю?

The first acquaintance with Nuremberg of Nov 29, 2019

We start the walk from the Big Round Tower on the main street of the city, which leads to the old town through the courtyard of artisans and St. Lorenz Square, to the central shopping area of the town, where the largest Christmas market in Europe took place annually. On the way, we see the famous museum bridge, the monument "Ship of fools", dine in the tavern of St. Sebald and return to the beginning of the path through Schleifersteg and Charles Bridge.
