Description

Heidelberg's Christmas market extends over no fewer than five squares: Kornmarkt, Marktplatz, Universitätsplatz, Anatomiegarten and Bismarckplatz. It is great for a leisurely browse and has stunning views of the castle and the old quarter with its beautiful Christmas decorations. A wide array of crafts and tasty regional delicacies all add to the Christmas spirit in the historic town of Heidelberg. A new attraction at the Heidelberg Christmas market is “Christmas on Ice” situated on Karlsplatz. With a spectacular view of the Castle and surrounded by trees glistening with hundreds of stars, residents and guests can skate round the open-air ice rink to the accompaniment of Christmas music. Another premiere and fascinating experience will be the Art-Advent Calendar at Heidelberg Castle, which has already decorated the Vienna City Hall and will be seen, for the very first time in Germany, here in Heidelberg. From 1st to 24th December, the windows of the English building serve as a multidimensional advent calendar from behind which the works of prominent personalities will appear. From original works, backlit duplicates are produced and tailor-made to be integrated into the facade of the Heidelberg Castle.
