Children

In Corn Market there is the Christmas crèche. This Square is especially laid out for the joy of children. Little stalls house a children’s zoo where the donkeys and sheep may be stroked and petted. Stands with bio-beekeeping products, wooden puzzles, pullovers, and baskets woven on site, offer their wares for purchase. A tasty alternative to Bratwurst are homemade soups and stews with fresh bread and a warm cup of mulled mead.

Only a few steps further along, the Grande Finale of the Christmas stroll is found on Karl’s Square, where an open-air ice skating rink stretches out below the majestic backdrop of the castle. Here skaters have center stage through January 8, 2012 – and ice skates may be rented for a few Euros. At the evening’s close, as one lingers over a cup of white or red mulled wine and a snack, the curtain comes down on a scene of enchantment.
