The magic of Christmas
Many of the world's most beloved seasonal traditions originate in Germany, such as the Christmas tree and the Advent calendar. For Germans, however, nothing compares to the unique atmosphere of an authentic old Christkindlmarkt in a traditional setting.
The history of the Munich Christmas markets dates back 600 years, and every year the medieval centre of town is transformed into a winter wonderland of charming stalls selling every variety of classic decoration and gift in an atmosphere happy with the scent of roasted nuts and hot spiced wine.
I will take you on a leisurely atmospheric stroll through the wonderful and authentic Munich markets clustered around the historic "Old Town":
We will visit the central market on Marienplatz,
the "Christmas village" in the palace courtyard of the royal Residenz (voted 'Most Atmospheric Christmas Market in 2009!),
the "crib market" and my favourite and the popular "Medieval Market" in Wittesbacherplatz.
We will begin the tour from Karlsplatz and take a stroll down the pedestrian zone through the various Christmas markets including the nativity market, Marienplatz (central market), the Residenz Palace Christmas village and the Medieval Christmas market.
We can finish the tour with a stop at the Residenz for a delicious Eggnog drink.
