Christkindlmarkt

I am not a cold weather person but I can’t imagine a more fun and festive time to visit Munich than at Christmastime. More than 20 Christmas markets are scattered throughout the city inviting locals and tourists to eat, drink, (shop) and be merry! Our airbnb was ten minutes from Munich’s oldest and most traditional market, Christkindlmarkt. Located in Marienplatz, the city’s main square, it attracts over three million visitors every year. Frank and I walked there every night. We marveled at young and old coming together in such a joyful, colorful setting. The food was delicious, the drinks were warm and plentiful — you couldn’t help but get caught up in the holiday spirit!

  1. I would LOVE to get to a Christmas Market in Germany one day! Ever since my friend Heidi lived there, I have dreamed of going to one. Your pictures are amazing! I would want to buy so much! Was it hard to limit yourself? (probably not since you don’t have a home with a basement and loads of storage to come home to! haha!)
    What a magical place to be at Christmastime!
