Merry Medieval & Chocolate Christmas

ChocolArt Festival Tübingen & Esslingen Medieval Christmas

Today we find ourselves under the sweetest Christmas as we travel to the charming town of Tübingen where exquisite chocolate manufacturers present their creations at the ChocolART Festival. Indulge your sweet tooth with pralines, coca painting, chocolate workshops and more. Today is not a day for counting calories, but instead time to treat yourself to an array of beautiful confections, today chocolate is everything! Tübingen offers some beautiful architectural delights that seem custom built to create the perfect holiday atmosphere.  Enjoy a mug of hot steaming coco to warm your hands as you walk along narrow cobble stone alleys and admire the half-timbered houses, all lavishly embellished for the season.

After plenty of time to explore and shop for sweet treats, it is time to leave this chocolate-paradise and continue our next adventure, in Esslingen, a medieval town that is sure to take us back in time by at least 200 years.  In the afternoon, our quest for seasonal magic will take us to the charming medieval Christmas market in Esslingen. The festively decorated alleyways, lively bustle and scents of the market create the nostalgia of days gone by, as an irresistible Christmas spirit fills the air. Over 200 beautifully decorated stalls are waiting for you to explore and enjoy along with Merchants dressed in historical medieval attire eager to share their hand crafted goods and delicious treats prepared using traditional methods.
