Nuremberg in southern Germany has been known for its gingerbread since the Middle Ages. To many people, they’re an indispensable Christmas tradition. They can be found in abundance on Nuremberg’s Christkindlesmarkt.
The Christkindlesmarkt in Nuremberg is one of Germany's oldest and most famous Christmas markets. Annually the historic market attracts some two million people. DW's Hallie Rawlinson reports on her first visit there.
Dresden's Striezelmarkt, which claims to be Germany's oldest, opens this Wednesday (Nov, 28) for the 584th time. As on other German Christmas Markets, here too, security is a permanent fixture.
Scented candles. Loose leaf tea? Forget hygge. Believe it or not, Germany has been quietly commodifying coziness for centuries, says DW's Kate Ferguson.
It was another great weekend for Dortmund, whose win over Bremen secured them top spot at Christmas. But Bayern won big to prevent BVB from galloping clear, and there were two huge wins at the bottom end of the table.
