Munich Christkindlmarkt Munich

25 Nov. - 24 Dec. 2024 | Christmas market around Marienplatz

The Munich Christkindlmarkt, a sparkling jewel during the Advent season, transforms Munich into a wintry fairy-tale land each year. From the last week of November until Christmas Eve on December 24th, the city shines in festive splendor, with the market stretching from the historic Marienplatz to Rindermarkt..

Its roots date back to the 14th century, but the market as we know it today was first officially held in 1972. Munich, with its rich history and picturesque architecture, provides the perfect setting for this traditional market. The Munich Tourism Office, as the organizer, brings additional expertise to offer visitors an unforgettable experience.

At the foot of the neo-Gothic Town Hall and within sight of the majestic Frauenkirche, the market offers a magical backdrop. The stalls, artfully decorated and lovingly arranged, line the paved paths, providing a unique shopping and experience.

The Munich Christkindlmarkt's specialty lies in its authentic atmosphere. Craftsmanship, traditional Bavarian delicacies, and mulled wine warm the heart and soul. Gingerbread, bratwurst, chestnuts, and candied almonds are just a few of the culinary delights awaiting visitors.

Each year, thousands of visitors flock here, drawn by the unique blend of traditional culture, festive music, and the warm, inviting atmosphere.

In conclusion, the Munich Christkindlmarkt is not just a market, but a vibrant tradition that touches the hearts of all ages and brings the magic of Christmas to the Bavarian capital anew each year.

The Munich Christkindlmarkt will take place on 30 days from Monday, 25. November to Tuesday, 24. December 2024 in Munich.
