Tis the season ~ Christmas market season that is ~ AND I am so excited! German Christmas markets do not get old, well at least not to me. You might think, really? Aren’t they all the same… I would say a resounding, NO! I’ve lost count as to how many markets and festivals I’ve actually attended in the past four years but it has been a LOT. So naturally, I love to help and created an easy E-Book with tons of information. My Stuttgart Christmas E-book is available and ready for you anytime right here! I also put together a video describing all of my local favorites with more travel tips!
In my E-book I help with which ones to visit, when, where to park, what to look for, what to shop for and more~ it is easily downloadable to your phone – remember to click the link in your e-receipt. The link is only good for 24 hours!
If you are new to the Stuttgart area you might think just visiting the Stuttgart Christmas market might be a great place to start and you would be RIGHT! One of my favorites and easy to get to by train.
- Take the S1 to Hauptbahnhof and walk to the Schlossplatz if you’d like to walk the longest outdoor mall in Europe ~ Königstrasse or take the train to Stadtmitte and walk to Marktplatz – either way, you’ll discover two really big MARKETS that will thrill you this season.

Market Tips ~
- If possible avoid weekends these are usually quite packed, if this is your only choice, go early in the morning, right when it opens up!
- DRESS WARM and with comfortable shoes
- Carry smaller bills, nothing over a 50€, and try not to carry more than €200 on your person at any given time, especially in the bigger cities
- Have smaller EU coins available too
- Take your passport with you if you are traveling over borders
- Restrooms are generally located on the square somewhere but are most often porta-pottys. Restaurants typically don’t mind, but during this season will ask for a €.50 donation
It’s always an adventure when you ©Travel with Wendy!
