Feuerzangenbowle. Winter Cinema Night
December 9, 2011 at Haagtor
Like every year, the opening of the Tübingen Christmas Market is preceded with an evening
for true cineasts. A fantastic film night under the stars. The “Feuerzangenbowle” with the
legendary Heiz Rühmann playing the main role warms the heart, even more so when it is so
bitterly cold outside. Year by year approx. 2,500 spectators make the journey to the
Haagtorplatz in order to see this comedy which was made in 1944. During the film each guest
will surely sample “ein wänziger Schlock” of the home-made Feuerzangenbowle (flaming
Always on the 3rd weekend of Advent Tübingen invites you to its colourful and distinctive
christmas market in the old town. It begins on Friday and Saturday at 10 a.m. and ends at
about 9 p.m. On Sunday it opens at 11 a.m. and ends at 7 p.m. Hundreds of decorated
christmas market stalls merge during these three days with the half-timbered scenery of the
historical old town to form a homely and spirited whole. Over the market linger the aromas
of mulled wine, children’s punch, spices and roasted almonds. Stretching from the lower
town, over the Krumme Brücke and Kornhausstraße to the Marktplatz, over the Holzmarkt to
the Neckargasse, Neue Straße and round by the Nonnenhaus, Tübingen’s christmas market
extends over the whole town centre.
Whoever is searching for an unusual christmas present is in the right place here in
Tübingen: Here the visitor will continue to discover original and imaginative creations
from “Do-it-Yourself” (Marke Eigenbau) stalls. Most of the objects that are offered at the
(predominantly private) stalls are home-made, -cooked, -knitted, -carved, -shaped,
-moulded, -painted, -pressed, -timbered..., and the many marvelling visitors will be
encouraged to try and produce something similar themselves over the year or, if they choose
not to, to at least return to the christmas market in a year’s time.
