Full description
On this tour you can celebrate the Christmas season in the traditional German style by visiting some of the many Christmas markets in Munich as well as the city’s very own Christmas village. You will take a festive stroll through the colorful markets clustered around the historic Old Town, including the central market on Marienplatz, the Christmas village in the palace courtyard of the royal Rezidenz, the “Crib Market”, and the popular “Medieval Market” near Odeonsplatz. The tour will make regular stops at the various stalls and your guide will tell you all about the history of the markets, the meaning of the displays, and the Advent and Christmas rituals associated with them. You will also get to sample the traditional seasonal delicacy of Lebkuchen (gingerbread cake). You have the chance to see where many of the world’s most beloved seasonal traditions originated – the Christmas tree and the Advent calendar both originated in Germany. You will also get to experience the unique atmosphere of an authentic old Christkindlmarkt in a traditional setting, a favorite for many Germans.

    It was a very nice tour despite the very cold weather. More than visiting the Christmas markets and some churches, the guide told us lot of things about the traditions and the customs in connection with this type of markets and also interesting historical events.
