Johannisburg Palace provides the picturesque backdrop for this Christmas market on Schlossplatz square, which has a giant Christmas pyramid and a nutcracker figure that stands more than three metres tall. In pride of place is a traditional Franconian Nativity scene with life-size wooden figures, the focal point for a festive programme featuring alpenhorn players, children's choirs and instrumental and choral ensembles.
