Recs for Group Dinner in Nuremberg

Business trip next week and need to entertain a group of 10 Americans while in Nuremberg. Would love a traditional German meal (not even sure what that means in that region!), something special and fun but not necessarily fine dining.

Also, we are planning to attend the Christmas Market one evening--any suggestions for "must try" treats at the Market?

Thanks so much!

  1. a "must try" at the Christmas market is "3 im Weckla". The number 3 stands for 3 Nürnberger sausages (bratwurst) and "Weckla" is the local franconian dialect for (bread) roll. " 3 im Weckla" is eaten with mustard.

    The local Christmas specialty is "Elisenlebkuchen". Lebkuchen is gingerbread, Elisenlebkuchen is an espacially fine kind of gingerbread. You will find it not only at the Christmas market but everywhere around town.

    The "Glühwein" at the market usually is not very good, BUT for some strange reason it tastes very good, if you enjoy it directly at the market.
