Christmas Markets in Munich: my insider tips & highlights!

Christmas market Rotkreuzplatz

Every year, Munich is spoiled for choice. So quickly get the last Christmas gifts and then a mulled wine to one of the many Christmas markets in Munich!

APlease do not go to any Christmas market! And certainly not on the Marienplatz, on the Stachus or on the Tollwood. If, then at least in a cozy and charming atmosphere. My highlights and insider tips for Christmas markets in Munich:

Christmas Market (Obermenzing) - Burg-Romantik is in the hood

Blutenburg Christmas market

Sorry, for this entry - but this Christmas market is really something special. There are three very good reasons for this:

1. The location: Obermenzing (where I live by the way) is not necessarily "the place to be", but that's why it's so special. In principle, the market is located in the residential area in Castle Blutenburg and you have to either travel by car, bike or a bit awkward by bus. Parking is hardly available. Therefore, almost only locals can be found here.

2. Point of time: The Christmas market actually takes place Just a long weekend in December from Thurs-Sun and that's it. Unfortunately, it is always very busy, because you only have four days to admire him. The exact date you can find best on the Website.

3. The location: It could not be better. The Christmas market is located in the courtyard of the beautiful Blutenburg on a small pond. It can not be more romantic and cheesy. The walls are illuminated colorfully, the chapel fits perfectly into the picture and a small orchestra plays Christmas music. Inside there is still a small Christmas sale. Not for nothing is the Blutenburg also a popular wedding location.

As mentioned, the only downer is that it is a bit too busy. My favorite spot is at the top of the gallery, where in the far corner is also the Feuerzangenbowle hidden. Here it is, especially with kids, can endure very well and the drink here tastes also very delicious!

Open from Thu-Sun the second weekend of December

Christmas market on Rotkreuzplatz (Neuhausen) - small but nice

Carousel at Rotkreuzplatz

I admit, in three minutes you once ran over it. But that makes the charm. There is a cute children's carousel made of wood and a miniature Santa Claus riding on a rope high above their heads on a bicycle. The stalls are cute, lots of kitsch and goodies. So for a relaxed Christkindlmarkt visit just the thing. During the day, the popular Kasperle shows for children take place free of charge at certain times!

Open until the 23.12. until 20.30clock

Christmas market at Münchner Freiheit (Schwabing) - for creative people

Like the artist district itself, this Christmas market in Schwabing is also very creative: handcrafted art is a top priority here. There really is something for everyone. There is also a nice selection of culinary treats: from the classic tarte flambée to the fancy temtmo in a flat cake. With Glühwein & Co (almost) all flavors and colors are available. The Christmas market is relatively large, but due to the nice location on a small flight of stairs, it runs a bit.

Open until the 24.12. until 14clock

Christkindlmarkt at Weissenburger Platz (Haidhausen) - small insider tip

The stands are built in a circle directly around the Weissenburger Platz and for Christmas markets in Munich rather clear. You can make a nice round and do not get lost. For those who want to escape the hustle and bustle. The Christmas market is very dignified and during the day there are free Kasperle theater performances for the youngest visitors. A real insider tip among the Christmas markets in Munich!

Open until the 24.12. until 14clock

Christmas market at the Chinese Tower (English Garden) - pure romance

In the middle of the English Garden, surrounded by noisy trees, this Christmas market is really very romantic. If you are still lucky and it's snowing, the "Winter Wonderland" is perfect. Lovers can take a horse-drawn carriage ride here even in the right weather and drive through the English garden. Really gorgeous! As a change, there is even a small curling rink here, very cool! Personally, I associate very nice memories of this special market - my marriage proposal in said carriage!

Open until the 23.12. until 20.30clock

Christmas market in the Residenz (Maxvorstadt) - the classic

The atmosphere at this Christmas market right in the Kaiserhof of the residence on Odeonsplatz is unique. Surrounded by the beautiful walls, which are beautifully illuminated, the "Christmas Village" is the epitome of a Christmas market. A highlight is the small "fairy tale forest", where at various stations the most famous fairy tales are presented with talking figures. Unfortunately often very crowded, but the scenery makes up for it!

Open until the 22.12. until 20clock

Feuerzangenbowle am Isartor (downtown) - the slightly different Christmas market

Feuerzangenbowle at Isartor

Feuerzangenbowle at Isartor

After the model of the famous movie classic "the Feuerzangenbowle". One of the coolest winter locations in Munich! Located between the archways on the Isartor, this delicious and tasty drink is served here from a huge kettle. Of course only real with sugarloaf in the boiler and projections on the old walls. No classic Christmas market, but all the more worth seeing! There are a few small stalls, but nothing more. Best of all: it's up to the 6. Open January!

Open until the 06.01. until 22clock
