Wuerzburg Christmas Market

Our family's destination earlier today was the christmas market in Wuerzburg.

We ditched our original plan of going to Nuremberg but we did take the train as planned. The train ride from Schweinfurt to Wuerzburg cost €18 for all four of us; 2 adults and 2 children ages between 0 to 5. We paid the same amount for the train ride from Wuerzburg to Schweinfurt. That made our total transportation expense equal to €36 which is about $48. We would probably have saved a few bucks if we drove. It was all worth it though because we promised Skye a train ride which she really enjoyed.

For those of you who live in Schweinfurt but not a walking distance away from the train station, you can drive to and park your vehicle at the station's parking area. We paid €4 for a whole day parking privilege. You can also go by the hour but if you think you will be gone for over 4 hours, I suggest you pay the whole day rate.

By the way the Schweinfurt and Wuerzburg stations have no elevator. If you are travelling with a baby and a stroller be prepared to carry both down and up several flight of stairs. Not fun at all!

We got to our platform 10 minutes early and took pictures while we waited.

Our train arrived on time at 2:18 as scheduled.

The ride to Wuerzburg took about 30 minutes.

This is a view of the street accross the train station. This is lined up with boutiques, shops, and bakeries.

This street car track reminds me of downtown San Francisco!

The walk to the Christmas market took us longer than we would normally have because the street was packed. More so inside the market place itself.

Unlike the christmas market in Schweinfurt, there were a lot of vendors at the one in Wuerzburg.

Thank you for stopping by. Enjoy your weekend!
