Heidelberg's Christmas market, a perfect blend of tradition and romance, is spread out across seven locations in the old quarter: in the pedestrian area and on Bismarckplatz, Anatomiegarten, Universitätsplatz, Marktplatz and Kornmarkt, the most beautiful square of all. The Winter Woods (Winterwäldchen) on the Kornmarkt are an oasis of peace and the romance of winter. The inner courtyard of Heidelberg's famous castle provides the picturesque setting for a Christmas market with an eye-catching Advent calendar. Beneath the castle, on Karlsplatz square, you can hear excited voices and lively music on the 'Christmas on Ice' ice rink. On Saturdays in Advent at 6.30pm, guides will take you on a Christmas tour.
