After breakfast, today, join the tour leader for a full day excursion to the Nuremberg Christmas Market and to the Ansbach Christmas Village. Start by making your way towards Ansbach. The towers of the two city churches frame the romantic Christmas market and a giant Christmas pyramid is the center piece of such market. Mulled wine and a traditional Ansbach bratwurst will make a perfect combination on a cool pre-Christmas day. Later make your way to Nuremberg and let yourself be enchanted by the special and the festive atmosphere of the city. With its hundreds of years of history, the traditional market has to offer many things to do and enjoy

After breakfast, you are encouraged to join your tour leader for a marvelous full day excursion to Bayreuth and Bamberg Christmas Markets. During advent, Maximiliansplatz square in the pedestrian zone is transformed into a Christmas market, featuring among others, a large Franconian half-timber nativity scene depicting various scenes from the Christmas story. Later make your way towards Bayreuth. The Bayreuth Christmas markets is not just illuminated by any light, but by a 7-kilometer-long string of lights illuminating the old town and the Christmas market with a welcoming glow. About 50 stands offer Christmas treats and many great ideas for Christmas presents. The Christmas spirit is alive and well here; a feeling that gets reinforced by the visit of the Bayreuth Christ Child in this beautiful setting

Today after breakfast a full day excursion to Rothenburg and Wurzburg Christmas Markets awaits you. A visit to Rothernburg’s Reiterlesmarks is a must during the Advent period and every year, the medieval town of Rothenburg is transformed into a winter’s fairytale. As far back as the 15th century, Advent festivities have been accompanied by a wonderful Christmas market. This market can look back on over 500 years of living heritage that has hardly changed a lot since its historic origins. Later head towards Wurzburg’s old town and one of Germany’s most picturesque and enchanting Christmas Markets that attracts thousands of visitors every year. The Christmas market’s tradition dates back to the early 19th century. The historic market square with its Gothic Chapel of St Mary and its abundance of Baroque architecture provide a scenic backdrop for almost 120 wooden stalls. Choose from handmade holiday decorations ranging from artful glass, straw, pewter and pottery to wooden toys.

After breakfast and checkout, you are encouraged to join your tour leader for an excursion towards the Regensburg Christmas Market. The market on Neupfarrplatz is one of the most visited and popular Christmas markets in Regensburg.

There also is no shortage of stands for nice gifts like homemade leather goods, pottery, ornaments, candles made from honey, or even soap made from sheep’s milk. In the afternoon, make your way back towards Nuremberg’s Airport for your direct flight back to Malta departing at 20:3 0hrs.
