The Christmas market in Nuremberg is one of the most famous in Germany. This year, it has opened amid tightened security. Police will be conducting bag and ID checks. Authorities say the terror threat is higher in the wake of the Paris attacks.
Police in Berlin have said that two bags of bullets found near a Christmas market in western Berlin had no link to terrorist activities. The munitions were uncovered in an underground car park.
One year after the Berlin Christmas market terror attack, market organizers in Germany have security at the forefront of their minds. In Nuremberg, will roaming police forces drive visitors away from the mulled wine?
Relatives of 12 people killed in last year's terror attack at a Berlin Christmas market said they have been "left in the lurch" by the German chancellor. They said she has never expressed personal condolences.
Security has been tightened, but otherwise things were relaxed at the site of the 2016 terror attack that claimed 12 lives. DW's Jefferson Chase was on hand for the market's first day - and he wasn't the only one.
