During Christmas Market, Heidelberg Old Town is lightened up by the Christmas lights. The romantic, snowcovered backdrop of the Heidelberg Castle, and the expansive, world renowned Heidelberg Christmas Market, cast a spell of enchantment over the city during the season of Advent.

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.
