Let The Night Watchman Take You To The Holy Night
Fürth lets you enjoy the pre-Christmas time in a relaxed fashion at the Altstadt Christmas celebration and at the Christmas market at the Fürther Freiheit.
The Altstadt Christmas is considered an insider tip. At this market, you can find hand-painted porcelain, as well as hand-knitted and hand-carved items. You will not find any mass-produced articles here, only beautiful originals. The celebration is complete with a blacksmith showcasing his trade and the night watchman closing the market with his call at 8 pm.
The Christmas market at the Fürther Freiheit is also well worth a visit. Enjoy lots of music, beautifully decorated stands and children’s programs, such as a visit by the Fürth Christ Child and a living nativity scene that includes live sheep.
Also recommended are the guided Christmas tours where you not only learn about the history of the city, but are also entertained by stories of past Christmases.
