local specialities on the Nuremberg Christmas Market

But Nuremberg Christkindlesmarkt has got some special goods to offer: the famous Nuremberg "Lebkuchen" (somewhat resembling gingerbread) and - less well known but very original and tasty - the "Zwetschgenmännle" (plum manikin).
Zwetschgenmänle are figures made from dried plums and dried figs, which are held together by a skeleton of wire and birch. It takes up to an hour until a new plum Männle is made by hand - a painstakingly long process. Nowadays there are over 350 different figures: naked ones ("Nackerte"), gnomes, priests, devils and many more.
Another tradition of the Christmas market has also been preserved. The "Christkind" (Christ Child) opens the market with a traditional prologue before thousands of spectators.
The population of Nuremberg chooses the Christkind every two years. Candidates must be from 16 to 19 years old and live in Nuremberg.
