Munich has been hosting Christmas markets for 600 years, and every year the medieval centre of town is transformed into a winter wonderland cluttered with charming stalls selling every variety of classic decoration and gift in an atmosphere happy with the scent of roasted nuts and hot spiced wine.
Step inside a Christmas card.
We'll take you on a festive stroll through the colourful markets clustered around the historic "Old Town":
- the central market on Marienplatz,
- the "Christmas village" in the palace courtyard of the royal Residenz
- the "crib market"
- the popular "Medieval Market" near Odeonsplatz.
We'll make regular stops at the various stalls, and your guide will tell you about the history of the markets, the meaning of the displays, and the Advent and Christmas rituals associated with them. You'll also get to sample the traditional seasonal delicacy, Lebkuchen gingerbread cake – included in the price of the tour.
Munich was made for Christmas.
Come and see why.
