A great market this year. Reminder of years gone by. Great food and gluhwein - some of the best in the country. Even on a rainy evening it was loads of fun.

As with the whole town it is very pretty with many fancy houses and buildings and the Christmas market added to the charm.

This Kornmarkt is much smaller than most other markts. Probably because the town is smaller, which gave it a charming quiet, relaxing feel. Beautiful statue sits in the center of the markt.

The small square is dominated by a statue on top of a central fountain. There are some restaurants on the square but not much else. Worth a short stop for photos.

A very nice square in old Heidelberg, starting point of the mountain train to the castle. Just on The main road of the old city and next to marketplace . In the middle stands the Kornmarkt Madonna statue from the 18 century.
