Christmas market at the Marienplatz
When it gets dark and the snow lies on the rooftops of the market stalls in the bright shine of countless lights, then the Munich Christmas market on the Marienplatz is most beautiful. The approximately 3,000 lights of the big christmas tree, the symbol of the market, sparkle in front of the romantic backdrop of the neo-gothic Town Hall. Every year, Munich’s people and their guests get enchanted by the old Bavarian charm of this delightful tradition market.
From 25th of November until 24th of December the Christmas Market can be visited this year. The market covers an area of about 25,000 square meters from Marienplatz by the Kaufingerstrasse and Neuhauser Straße to the Richard Strauss Fountain where the crib market is located, as well as the wine road to the cattle market with the "Star Platz".
