We're going to stay in Stuttgart 3 nights and 2-ish days! Ludwigsburg will be one day trip and the other will be Esslingen (thanks to all you good people on TA). It'll be a cool contrast between the two!
We're really excited about the Esslingen Christmas festivities but not able to glean too much info from the town website.
How long is a good amount of time to loiter around Esslingen (get a feel for the town, maybe hike up to the Burg), then to enjoy the medieval market? Should we head over at lunch? Or is this a full day affair? Also, I read about a torch lit procession at some point, but not sure when that is or how to get involved!
Thanks for your thoughts. Any ideas are always welcome. =)
