Shopping & markets
Heidenheim is a popular place for shopping for people from the City of Heidenheim as well as from the whole region. The shopping centre Schlossarkaden and the pedestrian zone accomodate many retail shops, coffee shops and restaurants, which make the hearts of shoppers leap in joy.
Several markets offer regional products to their clients, too. The shopping facilities of Heidenheim are thus complemented by the weekly market, which takes places every Wednesday and Saturday at the Rathausplatz. Fresh, organic products from regional providers are high in trend and demand there.
The "Heidenheimer Winterdorf" (Heidenheim's Winter Village) is open from the end of October to the beginning of January at the Eugen-Jaekle-Platz. The small party village is comprised of six wooden houses and attract guests with their Après-Ski-atmosphere and food and drinks typical for the season.
