This was the second of seven markets we visited this year in Southwest Germany. We had just come from Frankfurt so it was nice to see a smaller town’s take on Christmas markets and after visiting the others after this one, looking back I can appreciate the uniqueness it offered of being spread across several town squares connected by a...

We walked around the market and found out so many souvenir shops. Prices were bit high but that was okay given the importance of the town. Plenty of places to have a snack so a good walk at the end.

On a cold and very wet November afternoon the market was not in the square! There were however a few souvenir stalls selling all sorts of things. It is in a great area and I expect when the Christmas Market is set up it is magical.

I loved walking throughout town and we took time to go around the Marketplatz. It's a great area for souvenirs.

The market square is the heart of town and situated right next to the cathedral. As with all cities/towns in Europe, this is where the locals would've met centuries ago to barter goods. Today, it has a wonderful fountain and some restaurants where you can sit and watch the world go by whilst you sip coffee or lick an ice-cream.... More

Myself and my friends visited this place to shop for some chocolates and souvenirs to take back home. I found it interesting as there were good number of shops and variety of tourists carrying shopping bags full of items. I found shopping area bit expensive and finally settled with Lindt chocolates.

The Church of the Holy Ghost is the centerpiece of the Market Square. It is worth checking out. There are shops built into the walls of the church. There are many restaurants around the church. Ideal for people watching.
