Bad Wimpfen search of Christmas Market

The Neckar River valley has a lot of wonderful little towns and castles, but few sights along the way compare with the ridge-top town of Bad Wimpfen. We took our self out on a search to the Christmas market of Bad Wimpfen and were very impressed by its city wall still intact, and sporting a very medieval appearance. It was a very interesting day, as we didn’t expect THAT much snow on the ground (or at least we were hoping for street that would have been somewhat cleanup!) We were amazed of the fact that shovels don’t seem to be working that good in Germany, I mean, we used to live in NE and IA, and if you don’t clean your sidewalk or driveway,

you get somebody complaining about it. And the funny part to me is that Germans are supposed to be very… picky about their surroundings. Their yard are clean, the street in front of their house is cleaned (well at least in summer time).

I guess that when it snow it is another story! But… It was fun walking in the snow covered street, with no cars running around. We were kind of wondering about it, since we were supposed to be coming for the Market, and discovered that the market ended the weekend prior to our visit! AH!! That’s typical us! Showing up 1 week late for something! Well, it was OK, we enjoyed cruising around the town, snowballs fight and discovering beautiful views and buildings!! Just way too cool!!!

A definitely “Must go back” on our list for this next year season!
