The Christmas market I will visit most will surely be the one at Wittelsbacherplatz. I have to admit that it’s directly on my way back from work. But even if this is not your case you should give it a try.
Here is the place where merchants, players, knights and noble maidens carry you back to the Middle Ages – and to a Christmas market which could have existed then. By the way: The first Christmas market in Munich was the Nikolausdult – was first mentioned in 1410).
Lantern makers, scribes and others show old handcrafts. Special (thematically adapted) food and drinks assure your personal well-being. Don’t miss the Feuerzangenbowle, a flaming spiced wine with rum!
At the weekends, more entertainment is offered: jugglers, theatre actors, medieval music groups and fire artists show their tricks to the public. However, to avoid the crowd it is recommendable to visit the market during the week.
Munich’s Adent Spectacle and Medieval Christmas Fair is open until 23 December from 11am to 8pm daily. There surely is no better place to end a shopping trip in the city centre.
