Parkingplaces not ready and icy. Marketplace icy, people falling. Then they came with a wheeled loader, drove through the crowd to get the place de-iced. Very dangerous. Guys you are charging for parking and entering the market. So get your job done!

We have parked in a village near by, called Hinterzarten. And than we saw xmas bus which took us for free to that beautiful place under old bridge. Medieval music, scents of "gluhwein" and sweets, deco lights and torches, creeks and mountains...it's unbelievable!
