Nuremberg's Christmas market, the Christkindlesmarkt, attracts some two million visitors a year. It's one of the biggest and best-known Christmas markets in the world. Today's market draws on a tradition that's more than 400 years old.
Almost a year after Anis Amri drove a truck into a Berlin Christmas market, startling police "failures" in the case have come to light. An investigator said he could not fathom why the killer was not under surveillance.
Berlin police allegedly wasted three hours after December's truck attack before initiating a city-wide search for suspects. Terrorist Anis Amri had ample time to flee, says an inquiry report cited by German media.
A golden crack in the ground in front of Berlin's Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church is planned to commemorate the victims of the December 2016 terrorist attack on a Berlin Christmas market.
After a poor beginning, the German government has begun offering meaningful help to those affected by the Berlin Christmas market attack. But has the country really learned how to deal with any future such events?
