Heidelberg’s Christmas Market was different than I had expected. I had expected Christmas Markets to cover a large market square (marktplatz). Heidelberg’s Christmas Market spanned a few small market squares that were scattered along the main road. Each had a few Christmas Market stalls, including food booths and a couple of rides for kids. Again, we stopped by a crepe stand…my favorite street food here in Europe.
Although Heidelberg is a beautiful place, I was less impressed by the selection this Christmas Market had to offer. A highlight was walking up to the castle. We took the ramp, as we had our stroller with us. With the steep grade of the hill, this was a challenge!
