*Heidelberg Weihnachtsmarkt (until Dec 22)🚉

Don’t fight traffic and circle around trying to find parking… TAKE THE TRAIN!! Heidelberg is an easy beginner’s train trip.

Under an hour and a half away, the Heidelberg Christmas Market finds itself on many top 10 lists. Enjoy the market across multiple Plätze in the city to grab Gluhwein before you enjoy ice skating. The Heidelberg Christmas Market is too amazing to skip over!!

Bonus: Impress your guests by making a stop at Neustadt an der Weinstraße and Mannheim Christmas Markets. You can do it with the same train ticket!!
