Hike to the castle Christmas markets

  • Dec 15, 2013 · 1:00 PM
  • Galeria Kaufhof; front entrance

The christmas market at the Heidelberger Schloss has a great atmosphere and well worth a visit. On Sunday 15th, we'll hike there from Bismarckplatz, aiming to arrive around 30 minutes before sunset, so we get to enjoy the christmas lighting once it gets dark.

The route will be a 2.5 hour hike up into the forest and along the valley, some steep uphill but otherwise generally a fairly easy walk (although the weather is supposed to be good, I think I'm coming down with a cold so don't want to push myself too much...)

Please wear layers of clothes (and some thick socks) and bring some extra layers for later ; we'll get warm hiking, but once we've stopped walking and the sun goes down it could be very cold and you'll then want to put on an extra jumper (or two)

      I retraced our steps but one week later. Someone put it on a tree so it was dry and clean, even if it was raining a lot before :-))). I was happy :-)
