Only one day for Christmas Markets--Rothenberg or Nuremberg

We're headed over to Germany next week, but unfortunately, we will be leaving in the evening of the November 29 and only get one day of Christmas markets, which start on the 29th in Rothenberg and Nuremberg. We will be staying in Nuremberg on November 28. Should we spend the 29th at the Nuremberg markets or go over to Rothenberg's? Or would it make sense to split our time?

Our current plan is to spend the 28th in Rothenberg exploring, then see Nuremberg and it's Christmas markets on the 29th. Should we plan to spend a whole day at the markets?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

The Christmas market in Nuremburg is HUGE. I see no reason to travel to Rothenburg to see another market. The goods sold, for the most part, are the same at the markets and I gave it half a d@y.

Rothenburg market is small. I don’t think we spent more than an hour at the Nuremberg market, but we were just looking, not buying.
