Hot, Mulled Wine At The Christmas Pyramid

The imposing towers of the two city churches frame the romantic Christmas market in Ansbach. A giant Christmas pyramid is the centerpiece of the market. The Christmas pyramid is 9 meters tall and you can get your serving of hot, mulled wine at the pyramid as well as many other culinary delicacies. As a matter of fact, mulled wine and a traditional Ansbach bratwurst are a perfect combination on a cool pre-Christmas day.

But there is a lot more to see at the market that covers the Martin-Luther-Platz and the adjacent Montgelas-Platz. Browse the stands for gift ideas and a variety of hand-made items. The train, the carousel, a children’s theater and children’s stories, as well as a live nativity scene featuring live goats, llamas, and camels are perennial favorites with the kids. Fireplaces that are spaced out throughout the entire market help create an especially friendly atmosphere.

High-quality arts and crafts are on display at the Christmas exhibit in the Gothic Hall of the town hall.

Ansbach is an enchanting town outside the Christmas market as well. Treat yourself to a wintertime, guided city tour to find out.
