"Decorate your own lebkuchen!" Nürnberg Things to Do Tip by CatherineReichardt
Nürnberg Things to Do: 534 reviews and 1,257 photos
There can't be a child in the world who doesn't love to bake, and one of the most fun things we discovered to do at the Children's Christmas Market was decorating lebkuchen (traditional spicy gingerbread biscuits).
The biscuit dough is cut into a generously sized shape of your choice (stars, hearts and the like), and then you are given free rein to decorate it according to your own artistic instincts. Once you have finished, your masterpiece is popped into an oven, and emerges 8 minutes later.
The guy who runs this stall is wonderful with children, and ours absolutely loved the experience. I can't remember exactly how much it cost, but it wasn't expensive (certainly less than €5 each) and was a wonderfully festive thing to do. Better still, the lebkuchen actually tasted great. Highly recommended!
