A few years ago, my mother and I took a trip following my late grandmother’s journal around Europe. Our first stop was Heidelberg, where we decided that things probably hadn’t changed that much since she was there. The old town that she wrote about was still charming, the castle still sits over the beautiful city, with a gorgeous view down to the town, the river, and right now the Christmas market. Our favorite thing was the apple cake, which we had twice! This time, my favorite thing was adding a Christmas memory to the story. Even though I loved being here in the summer, it felt extra festive and specially in the winter too. I’ve written a post and made a video of all of the markets that I visited on this trip, click on the link in my bio so that you can pick your favorites for when you come! #christmasbawu#visitbawu#spon
This picture was taken at the prehistoric stilt houses in #unteruhldingen, a #unesco World Heritage Site. In the background the #monastery#church#birnau shows. Not far away there are numerous Christmas Markets around #lakeconstance, including Friedrichshafen, Meersburg and the islands of Mainau and Reichenau. A very special one is definitely the Christmas Market in #constance which takes place at the harbor and in the old town. A highlight of this market is the Christmas Ship on which you can also walk along market stalls and drink mulled wine. Until 22.12. you can still visit this special Christmas Market - and it is certainly worth it to make a detour to the stilt houses in advance to that.
Fröhliche Weihnachten from Heidelberg! Which Christmas markets in Baden-Württemberg are your favorite? This university town is magical at any time of year, but at Christmastime the markets really make it come alive! When you visit, be sure to walk up to the castle and see the market from afar before walking down into it to get the full experience. #visitbawu#christmasbawu thanks for coming along with me this weekend guys, @bemytravelmuse signing off for now. See you again soon!
I went to nine Christmas markets in total this weekend, bringing my grand total up to something like 30, and I think that I found my favorite. The Christmas market at Bad Wimpfen Is just so pretty, and I love that you can keep meandering up the cobblestone streets turning right or left to branch off and find new little courtyards. There are stands selling handmade decorations, delicious food, sweets, and everyone’s favorite - steaming hot beverages. It feels like the whole little town got involved, decorating the houses and making me feel transported back in time. It’s only about an hour north of Stuttgart. I highly recommend this one! #christmasbawu#visitbawu#spon
This is my favorite little town in Germany - Tübingen. When I imagine fairy tales and my inner six year old dreams about the 'olden days' I can't imagine a more perfect example than this university town in Germany's Baden-Württemberg. Today they're hosting the biggest chocolate market in Europe - chocolART. They've got chocolate in every imaginable form - hot chocolate, spicy, chocolate covered fruit, chocolate mulled wine, chocolate EVERYTHING. I was also completely delighted by the light-up buildings at night. Put this on your list for next year or if you're here now, GO! #christmasbawu#visitbawu#spon
