Christmas Market Tasting Tour

The Munich Christmas Market at Marienplatz is the original of the city. On this tour you can not only get to know the past and present with an official guide, but also try mulled wine, almonds and stollen bread.

With its 30 meter high and nice decorated tree, the Christkindlmarkt at Marienplatz is not only the most famous Christmas market in the city, it is also one of the oldest. Its roots are said to lie in the 14th century St. Nicholas markets, since 1972 it is held in the heart of the old town. In addition to numerous stalls where you can feast and buy small gifts, there are also activities such as the Himmelswerkstatt in the New Town Hall, the Christkindl-Postamt and much more.

Who participates in a tasting tour of the Munich Christmas Market will not only find lots of interesting facts about the past and present, but with a bit of luck also a chat with the stall owners. When there isn't too much going on, they tell you about their products, some of them have been on sale here for decades. In addition to exciting information, there are of course also delicious delicacies: roasted almonds and nuts, creamy treats, stollen bread – and mulled wine, of course, should not be missing on the tasting tour.

Meeting Point: New Town hall, in the magnificent courtyard to the left of the crib (entrance under the tower of the Glockenspiel).
Duration: approx. 2 hours

Tickets are also available at the Tourist Information at Marienplatz.
