It is still magic, although more and more commercial, and it keeps its charm. You should just take some time to stroll around, biting some franconian sausage and drinking gluhwein. Then at midday the magic will increase: from all around town the churches bells will...More

Like another place at Christmas, the markets are busy. The evenings are more crowded. Go around 4-5 or during the day if you can.
