Christmas in Munich

WHERE: Munich, Germany

In the beautiful, evocative, Munich, Christmas markets have traditions rooted in time. Just think that the first, date back to the fourteenth century.

Today, the Christmas in Munich is synonymous with tradition, quality and great suggestion. Christkindlmarkt am Sendlinger Tor, in the beautiful Marienplatz, is undoubtedly the most famous, but, during the Advent season, the choice is really wide and evocative.

During the Advent season, you can breathe all the charm and the magical atmosphere of Christmas. The air is pervaded by the scent of biscuits, cinnamon and mulled wine. The streets, the squares, the buildings are all a whirl of sparkling lights and colors. Large decorated trees. Christmas in Munich is truly magical and evocative.

The stalls are an invitation to visit and rummage, looking for the best deal. Decorations, souvenirs, handicrafts, gastronomy, and much more. In addition to the traditional Munich Christmas markets, there will be plenty of shows and events for all ages. Children and families can spend extraordinary moments of joy and celebration.

You can take a trip to the Magical Christmas Village. In Tollwood, a rich program of events and live music awaits you. And, again, a medieval flea market, the ever-present ice rink and even evening bus tours to the Franz Josef Strauss airport.
