I do not know, if the market on Market Square is every day but it is there at least each Saturday. Christmas market is there from the middle of November.

Nice for a stroll in the afternoon after a visit to Heidelberg Castle, an area of expensive restaurants. It is also recommended to visit the bridges.

This area is vibrant and energetic. We enjoyed walking through the shops and people watching. Would recommend finding a nice café to have a coffee and just relax.

The Markplatz is a central gathering spot in Altestadt Heidelberg located between Holy Ghost Church and the Rathaus...there a bunch of tables served by the restaurants located around the square. Good food, good bier and people watching.

The place is a dead town on a Sunday, except cafe & restaurants. It's hard to get seats at restaurants on weekends during meal times.

This place in the heart of the old town is really large and beautiful. The buildings around give this place a romantic mood. Unfortunately it's also the heart of tourism in this big touristic town in Germany... So it loose a bit the local charm...More

Heidelberg is the university town for excellence. Over 30.000 university students on a population of around 140.000. Lots of things to do and to see. Don't miss the bus tour of the town in order to have a total view of what's new and what's...More

Walking around, this colorful market is nice. Experience the buzz around, go into the Lindt chocolate store and choose from an array of chocolates is a pleasure.
