The places of the Heidelberg Christmas market


You will find everything that makes you happy on the largest square of the Heidelberg Christmas Market. While the little ones have fun on the antique carousel, the parents treat themselves to a little break from the hustle and bustle with mulled wine and bratwurst.

The highlight of the square is the Heidelberg barrel. A large wooden barrel with a capacity of 120,000 liters. This makes it about half the size of the original, namely the large barrel in Heidelberg Castle. Inside the barrel there is a room above the sales booth with a wonderful view of the box overlooking the market.
On November 29 the atmospheric illuminated market square is the scene of Pink Monday.

Illuminated fir trees and illuminated pointed tents create an atmospheric atmosphere and invite you to linger up to and including January 1st, 2022.

Framed by the romantic castle backdrop, one of the most beautiful ice rinks in Germany awaits you until January 9, 2022. Further information you find here.
