I have been to a lot of Christmas Market here in Germany (Stuttgart, Durlach, Kaiserslautern, Esslingen and more) but this is my favorite of them all. It is small enough that you get to see everything and enjoy the food as well. (I had the fresh smoked salmon - they were smoking the salmon there!)

The market opens at 11 and we were there at 1130. The line in the food stalls are not that long yet and so we were able to enjoy eating and drinking our gluhwein. We were able to take our time browsing the different products in the store, too. As the place were starting to get crowded, we bought a ticket to see the Abbey. And before it starts geting really dark, we started heading out.

Maulbronn's Christmas market is only 1 weekend in December so you have to check the dates before hand. They also have Easter market which I heard is really worth the visit, too.

The ticket for the Abbey is 17 Euro for a family of 4.

A spectacular place to visit. It's a UNESCO world heritage listed site. Tours available in different languages. It was a hot day but nice a cool inside the buildings.

A beautiful scenic road leads you from Karlsruhe to Maulbronn. It takes time but the highway is crowded anyway. This place is an Unesco world heritage. A ticket to enter the monastry is 7Euros but the old village surrounding it is free.

Although it is worth tonstay longer, visit may be completed in 30 minutes. Overwhelming.

The spectacular monastery complex, a variety of buildings well preserved intact almost thousand years, is included in the list of World Heritage Sites by UNESCO as the oldest and preserved medieval monastery in Europe.
During visiting hours there are conducted guided tours in different languages, but a map and a booklet (to buy in information booth at the entrance) are sufficient to explore the monastery complex independently.
After an intensive stroll you'll find pleasant cafes and restaurants in the original buildings of the complex.

Especially if you are a history buff you will enjoy this ancient location. Being an abbey it is peaceful and spiritual. The architecture is amazing. Do get an audio tour so you can appreciate what you are seeing, this is very well done. Plenty of room for kids to be kids.
