WinterWheel Nuremberg

Whether Berlin, Stuttgart, Düsseldorf, Erfurt, Leipzig, Landshut or Karlsruhe - many German cities set themselves a landmark and offer their guests sightseeing rides with breathtaking panoramic views - especially at Christmas time.

Our concept focuses in particular on providing the ideal complement to the Christkindlesmarkt and creating an attractive location in the city centre to strengthen Nuremberg as a shopping destination.

Nuremberg was once judged to be the most beautiful city in Germany by readers of the American travel magazine “Condé Nast Traveler”. They highlighted the unique historical backdrop, the very special charm of which can best be appreciated from above.

With our event format, we want to make an important contribution to the sustainable development of tourism.

Embrace the winter

A heavenly voyage of discovery above the rooftops of the city - a truly memorable experience.


WinterVillage with nostalgic children’s carousel, mulled wine and the cosy and warm magic of the wooden huts. Typical winter and regional culinary delights round off your time in the WinterVillage. Alongside a wide range of sweet and savoury delights, the stalls serving hot and cold winter drinks are a central point of contact where visitors like to meet up for a drink or just bump into friends from the old days. The “Christmas City Nuremberg” mugs specially designed for the WinterWheel with WinterVillage will soon be adorning numerous kitchen cupboards as souvenirs.
