Coburg Christmas Market
Coburg Christmas markets are popular breaks with visitors on holidays to the German Christmas markets.

The Coburg Christmas market is located in a small but lively town, full of tradition and history, with an abundance of picturesque Franconian gabled houses and some of the largest and best-preserved castles in Germany. Home to one of the most famous ''Coburgers'' - Prince Albert - who introduced the Christmas tree to England, this is one of the most historic and atmospheric markets in Germany.

The Christmas market offers everything from wooden toys, ceramics and porcelain to tasty regional delicacies like gingerbread and the famous bratwurst sausages. A baroque merry-go-round in the centre of market square enchants children and adults alike. The Christmas markets here are also popular with visitors on Nuremberg city breaks as Coburg is situated about an hour north of the city.

Whether it's the freshly made cakes or the rich aroma of roasted almonds, the Christmas market is a nostalgic experience and the perfect place for a festive feast.

During the yuletide period, the market transforms into an exhibition for local craftsmen to show and sell their work. Glass blowers, wood carvers and many more craftsmen from around Europe come to show their refined craftsmanship.

The Coburg Christmas market starts every year with an atmospheric candlelight parade through the town centre by the local children's choir.

Those who really love Christmas markets should also plan a trip through the beautiful markets of nearby Bad Rodach and Neustadt bei Coburg. A visit the the Historic Christmas Museum in Neustadt is also a great way to heighten the festive atmosphere and feeling.
