Christmas Markets

photoOne of the nicest times to visit Heidelberg is at Christmas, when the Heidelberg Weihnachtsmarkt is in full swing. About half a dozen Christmas markets are scattered along and near the Hauptstrasse from the Bismarkplatz to the Kornmarkt, with attractions that range from sausage and Glühwein vendors to an ice-skating rink.

You can walk from one end of the old town to the other, drinking and noshing as you enjoy peering in the windows of stores like the Café Konditorei Gundel (inset photo) with their Christmas displays.
