10 reasons to visit the Christkindlesmarkt, Nuremberg's Christmas market
Dried fruit souvenirs
Dried plums as arms and legs, a tummy made of dried figs and a walnut for a head – this is how the Zwetschgenmännle prune men are made. These typical figures are made to look like pastors, devils, gnomes or like here musicians – there are 350 varieties. The prune men, which are not fit for eating, are best suited as souvenirs – apparently they'll keep up to 50 years.
