Christmastime in Heidelberg

Sunday, December 30, 2012

After leaving Munich, Andrew and I took a train to the charming city of Heidelberg. We arrived just in time for the start of their Weihnachtsmarkt, a Christmas market that was set up all around the city. Andrew and I absolutely loved hanging around the Weihnachtsmarkt. When we weren't sightseeing, we sat around for hours drinking Gl├╝hwein, talking, and people watching. The great thing was, even though these Christmas markets were just small carnivals, everyone in the city was there! Heidelberg is a university town, so the markets were filled with college students and the bars were almost empty while the markets were open! It was great to experience the sense of community that existed in Heidelberg—a sense of community I wish existed back in LA.

For my outfit, I decided to wear one of my favorite sweater dresses. Looking back, I realize I styled it with the exact same scarf I had worn last time! But, I think my orange beanie and light boots gave it a bit of a different look. Ever since I bought this beanie last winter, I have struggled with styling it (I also never really felt like I was hipster enough to pull it off...). However, it was perfect for the chilly days in Germany and I thought it made me look a little more "European" :) One of my favorite parts of traveling is experimenting with new styles I normally wouldn't try back home. There is something about being in a new place that makes me feel like I can really wear whatever I want!

  2. Aaahhh...now you've hit somewhere I've been! When I went to Europe (lived there for a month), this was the first town I visited. I loved it so much, even the walk up that massive hill to the castle! Some of my fave pics of Europe come from Heidelberg. I also ended up buying 90% of my souvenirs from there, in the little stalls set up on the streets. It's such a great town!
