15 December 2015 Tuesday.
After breakfast, we had few hours before our bus ride to Nuremberg. We strolled along the bank of Vltava River, trying to catch a complete snapshot of Charles Bridge.
Boatman started their day early on this cold winter morning.
We noticed more Bridge arch behind Charles Bridge. Very nicely aligned.
With Charles Bridge…
Swans gracing Vltava River Bank.
Mandarin ducks ?
Wanna try this restaurant….we were a little too early.
Under the bridge
Bridge artists started their day early too.
It was a happy sunny day at Prague. Many tourists were roaming the bridge.
After Charles bridge, we headed for the Old Town square. Morning Christmas market was crowded and vibrant.
Musician playing by the book.
I managed a closed up picture on the astronomical clock. The crowd gathered whenever the hour was approaching. We did not wait anyway. (The secret of the astronomical clock – the astronomical clock shows time that nobody understand. There is a hidden clock beside it that give real time and all the “walk of apostles” are based on the modern hours)
My wife was very happy this morning – she had a new pair of shoe.
It was a little late when we were back to the hotel. Very quickly we checked out. Hopped onto a cab and make our way to the railway terminal. We had 15 minutes before the scheduled bus departure for Nuremberg. We used the time to explore the railway station.
The bus was fully packed. The ride was nearly 4 hours. It was almost evening time when we arrived at Nuremberg.
Art and Business hotel was about 200m from the bus terminal. After checked in, we decided we should have early dinner at Barfuber before we explored Nuremberg Christmas Market.
I had a big mug of beer… I really enjoyed the drink.
I aimed to have 4 pork knuckles for this trip, this was my second (reality this was my last pork knuckle for this trip). Meat was so tender and tasted exceptional with the sauce. Very good dinner.
Stepping out of Barfuber, Nuremberg Church (St Lorenz) is just a stone throw away.
The street was crowded as we approached the Christmas Market.

The stalls sold festive food and……
I have special liking for these crystal ball.

End of Day 3. We had wonderful morning along Vltava River Bank and Prague Old town, having very good beer and pork knuckle at Barfuber and fully enjoyed the Christmas atmosphere at Nuremberg Christmas Market.
