This was our first Christmas Market. Had wonderful booths of food and drink (a hot mug of Gluwein taste great on a really cold evening). Amazing chocolate booths. Loved the medieval theme--blacksmith, archer, shows and clothing items.

My teenage sons enjoyed walking this small town and taking in its beauty. The train ride from Stuttgart was fast and had very nice scenery of vineyards . The town has a river that is picture perfect.
