In the heart of the Old Town of Würzburg one of Germany’s most picturesque and enchanting Christmas Markets attracts thousands of visitors every year. The tradition dates back to the early 19th century and the historical market square with its Gothic Chapel and abundance of baroque architecture provide a charming Christmas Card Scene. Choose from the large holiday ornament and décor display ranging from artful glass, straw, pewter and pottery to wooden toys. Sample the delicious Christmas cookies and roasted almond, and sip the traditional Gluhwein,
a famous hot spiced red wine.
