 The Christmas market in Heidelberg 2022


The Christmas market in Heidelberg is worth a trip to in 2022 Baden-Württemberg. There is Christmas romantic. Heidelberg is one of the university cities in Germany. With its old town, the location on the Neckar and the castle in Heidelberg on the hill behind the old town, it offers a backdrop that romantics like. This comes into its own during the Christmas season. You can experience them at the Christmas market.

The smell of Heidelbär mulled wine at the Heidelberg Christmas market

With the scent of Heidelbär Mulled wine, Christmas cookies and almonds flow through the city. The best thing to do is try the blueberry mulled wine from the Heidelberg Christmas market in all variations. Because this is even available in white and pink. 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's Christmas market is spread across the city's squares.

  • Bismarckplatz,
  • Anatomy Garden with the statue of Robert Bunsen, who taught in Heidelberg,
  • the university square with the old carousel,
  • Kornmarkt with the winter forest as well
  • the marketplace.

The Heidelberg barrel has been on the market square since 2019. Despite a capacity of 120.000 liters, it is only half the size of the original barrel in Heidelberg Castle. There is a sales room in there. Don't miss the room above. From there you have a beautiful view of the Christmas market.

Heidelberg Christmas market in times of the energy crisis

Heidelberg will also have to save electricity in 2022. Therefore, all sales stands now use energy-saving LED lamps for lighting. 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 Christmas 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 light up in Christmas light from 17:00 p.m. to 21:00 p.m. The facades of the town hall, Prince Carl and the university have no Christmas lights at all. The lighting therefore costs around 40 percent less electricity.
