Shortly thereafter, Nuremberg announced the next bad news: the Christmas market was canceled.

  • The number of new infections with the coronavirus continues to rise rapidly.

  • Drastic measures have now been imposed in the Bavarian district of Rottal-Inn.

  • The city of Nuremberg has now announced the cancellation of the world-famous Christkindlesmarkt.

corona pandemic

.

The city of Nuremberg announced this

on Monday with a

“This decision is very difficult for us.

The Christkindlesmarkt with its great tradition is part of Nuremberg, ”said Mayor Marcus König (CSU).

Corona in Nuremberg: Christmas market canceled due to the number of cases

As in the rest of Bavaria, the number of new corona infections in Nuremberg is moving

towards the threshold of 100

and more infections within seven days.

According to the Bavarian Ministry of Health, this is currently 76.01.

"It can be assumed that the threshold will rise above 100 in the near future and the

Ministry's

Corona traffic light will change

to dark red," said König.

Corona in Bavaria: World famous Christmas market in Nuremberg canceled

The city originally planned to have the

traditional Christkindlesmarkt more

decentralized and with a strict hygiene concept.

But in view of the increasing numbers, the city now thinks this is a wrong signal, said König.

Together with the Dresden Striezelmarkt, the Nuremberg Christkindlesmarkt is one of the

oldest Christmas

markets

in Germany.

The Christ Child traditionally opens this with the prologue, which usually thousands of visitors listen to on the main market.

The city is still considering what role the Nuremberg Christ Child could play this year, it said.
