Held by tradition on the third weekend in Advent the medieval university city of Tübingen host a very merry and unusual Christmas market in the old town. Hundreds of decorated stalls set against a backdrop of half-timbered houses which creates a cosy and nostalgic atmosphere. The air is filled with the classic aromas of hot mulled wine and punch, spices and roasted almonds.
