Surrounded by buildings of the historical Old Town, a magical atmosphere at Christmas-time and is an ideal place for the annual Christmas Fair. The delicious smells of such culinary specialities as mulled wine, baked apples, gingerbreads, the "Christstollen" - a special Christmas cake, and the famous grilled sausages draw people from around the city. Once there, they find all kinds of rides and entertainment, including choirs, orchestras and storytellers.
At the festive market inauguration the Heidelberg Christ child will greet visitors from near and far at the City Hall. Christmassy melodies evoke the most pleasant of atmospheres.
Don't miss to visit "Christmas on Ice", one of the most beautiful ice rinks in Germany.
Heidelberg Palace Christmas
The enchanting sight of brightly lit marquees, set against the backdrop of an illuminated palace, and wreathed in the tempting aroma of gingerbread: that’s what awaits visitors to Heidelberg Palace Christmas. On 12 days in December, Heidelberg Palace gardens will host a small artisanal crafts market. In addition to handmade wooden, glass and woolen wares, the lovingly decorated tents will offer a variety of tasty treats.
