The Largest Punch Bowl in the World

The numbers alone are impressive: The 3.40-meter-high kettle is 2.5 meters in diameter and holds 9,000 liters - that is a lot of punch. 😉 It takes 48 hours to warm up the content.

Every year, at the beginning of the Nuremberg Christmas Market, a little village of booth pops up at "zwischen den FleischbĂ€nken" (on the Pegnitz River near the market) around the largest warm punch bowl in the world. There is a romantic view over the river, illuminated by the glow of the flames over the specially made kettle. Pictures from the cult film "Die Feuerzangenbowle" with Heinz RĂŒhmann are projected on screens around the booths. Enjoying a cup of warm punch with friends and family has become a pre-Christmas tradition for many people of Nuremberg.

What makes the punch so dangerous?

And the good thing: The warm punch bowl is open until December 31, 2023 - on weekends until 11 pm!

Our tip:If you don't know how you are going to celebrate the arrival of 2024: At the largest warm punch bowl in the world there's a New Year's Eve party!
