What to do beside the Christmas Markets in Germany?

Jump to last reply

Hello, our initial Christmas Market trip was 20 days; we've had to cut it back to 10-11 for a number of reasons but here is the current version:
12/12 - arrive Frankfurt and drive to Wurzburg 2 nights
12/14 - leave Wurzburg and drive to Nurenberg 2 nights
12/16 - leave Nuremberg and drive to Rothenburg 3 nights
12/19 - leave Rothenburg and drive to Heidelberg (we have friends here we will be seeing) 1 night
12/20 - leave Heidelberg and drive to FRA - stay near airport
12/21 - depart Frankfurt

Beside the markets, which are the principle reason for our trip, what else should we be doing? I have the feeling that 1-1.5 days in a market might be enough/city. The Christmas Museum and Night walk in Rothenburg are on the plan, we've spent time already in Heidelburg but I want to tour the Castle again. I'm wondering if there are scheduled concerts during the holidays at some of the churches or cathedrals?? We had a wonderful tour of the presepe in Rome two years ago - is there something similar that is a German tradition? Air is not booked yet so we can add a day on either end of the trip; just need to be back in the States by the 23rd.

Many thanks!
