I had a great time visiting Linz especially its Christmas Market. Thanks to this bus company from Regensburg, Germany, who offered a cheap trip to Austria’s third largest city. I did not regret booking that trip. Even though I was alone during that travel, I still made the most and best of it.  It  was so far a wonderful   time  for me visiting  Linz!

It is Christmas Market season in Germany. Many  countries in Europe are celebrating the same. In Germany, Nuremberg is probably hosting  one of the most famous Christmas Market in Germany. It is visited by tourists and visitors  from all corners of the world every year.  It is held in Nuremberg Main Market Square, located in front of  the Frauenkirche or Church of  Our Lady.

It is time to witness and enjoy this  enchanting event in Nuremberg.  You will probably want to try Glühwein or mulled wine, which will make you feel warmer during the chilly weather. Famous Nuernberger delicacies like Bratwurst (a kind of sausage), Lebkuchen or Ginger  bread and roasted almonds  are always present in the market.  There are around 180 wooden booths  you  can find at the Christmas Market. Christmas decors, toys, various arts and crafts  and other traditional  Christmas goods are available for sale.

I always love visiting the Christmas market in Nuremberg.  But be careful, this is the time of the year when many pick-pocketers are loitering around  looking for victims.  Be careful with your bags and personal belongings.  One of my friends was already a victim last  December 2010.

Here are some images I took during one of my visits.
