Buy a cup full and stroll past the wooden huts with it. There are handicrafts, Christmas decorations, Christmas tree decorations and possibly a Christmas present for the family. Maybe you would like to try baked apples instead? Or are you more in the mood for a bratwurst? In any case, the selection of delicacies is large.

Heidelberg Christmas market in times of the energy crisis

Heidelberg also has to save electricity. Therefore, all stands now use LED lamps for the lights, which save electricity. The ice rink at the Heidelberg Christmas market has been running on green electricity since 2017. This now saves 75 to 80 percent of electricity. In addition, in the city of Heidelberg, the lights on the main street are only switched on from 16:00 p.m. to 22:00 p.m. In addition, the Christmas trees only shine in the glow of lights from 17:00 p.m. to 21:00 p.m. The facades of the town hall, Prince Carl and the university have no lights at all. The lighting therefore costs around 40 percent less electricity.
