Cute

A cute market square with some important and impressive buildings around it. Very busy with tourists though, as it is also filled with terraces.

We came here for the famous Christmas markets during Christmas. They have about 5 or 6 of them stranding from one side of the market square area to the Main Street in Heidelberg. There are many college students everywhere. They have a lot of great stores in the same area.

Packed with Peeps
Jun. 2019
Heidelberg was just packed with people, this market square particularly. There are little tourist shop booths all around Heiliggeistkirche. The fountain is pretty, but not elaborate. If you like highly traveled tourist spots, this is it!

We visited here in the evening during the Christmas Market. It was beautiful. We walked across the Old Bridge and entered into a joyful party. No one was a stranger. Walking up and down the Marktplatz was a joy.

Great Christmas Market in Heidelberg
Dec. 2019
Heidelberg has a Christmas market. It is excellent. It's laid out along a very long pedestrian shopping street. The markets tend to be in squares along the street or at the beginning and the end of the pedestrian zone.

The experience involves eating sausages on a bun and drinking glugwein out of ceramic mugs. However, the shopping along the pedestrian street is excellent. There are bakeries, florists, housewares stores and lots of places to visit and wander. We've found gift ideas we've never seen in the US.

Each year, we try and fly over for a long weekend. The Heidelberg Christmas market is always on our list.

Fabulous square in charming town
Oct. 2019
What's wonderful about a town square it is usually has a lot of history and beautiful buildings as does this one. Well worth a stroll and a local guide if you can.

Great Christmas Market!
Dec. 2019
You’ll find interesting gifts here, and you simply must try their potatoe pancakes, “kartofelpuffer!” They’re a slice of heaven, with applesauce!
