Pictures From Our Trip to Germany and Austria: Nuremberg

Last year while honeymooning in Germany, Alison and I visited Nuremberg to see some of the historical sites related to World War II. One night, while looking for a place to have dinner, we strolled through the medieval city center and saw the locals setting up for the coming Winterfest. Our main reason for going back to Germany this year was to attend the festival.

The Frauenkirche overlooking the man market square in Nuremberg and the Winter Festival. The Frauenkirche was built from 1352 to 1362 by Holy Roman Emperor Charles IV.

The market. Alison got a lot of Christmas shopping done here. My favorite stalls were the ones that sold gluhwein, or German mulled wine.

 St. Lawrence Church, built in the 15th Century.

The marketplace at night, with the nave of Saint Sebaldas Church in the background.
