Overview

Soak up the holiday spirit with a 2-hour tour of the Munich Christmas markets. With more than 20 holiday markets across the city, follow a guide through Munich's Old Town to explore the city's festive offerings, including Christkindlmarkt in Marienplatz. Shop for handmade Bavarian gifts, sip on glühwein (mulled wine), and try lebkuchen, the gingerbread cookie that has been a local Christmas staple since the 14th century.
  • 2-hour guided tour of Munich's Christmas markets
  • Shop for handicrafts and regional delicacies at several Christmas markets around Munich's Old Town
  • Learn about German Christmas traditions and the history of the markets from your guide
  • Sample lebkuchen, a traditional gingerbread-like cake that's a local holiday favorite
Your 2-hour tour begins at Munich Central Station (Hauptbahnhof), where you’ll meet your guide in mid-afternoon and head out into the ornamented streets of Munich's Old Town. Make sure to bundle up until your first cup of glühwein or cider.

Take in the scent of spice cake as you make your way to Christkindlmarkt in Marienplatz, Munich’s oldest Christmas market. Browse the stalls filled with toys, gifts, and homemade delicacies available for purchase.

Continue to the Sendliger Tor market, followed by the Christmas village in Munich Residenz. Your final stop will be the Medieval Market near Odeonsplatz, where you’ll discover an ode to the Bavarian Christmas markets of the Middle Ages. See performances, medieval buskers, colorful costumes, and handicrafts for sale. 

Along the way, learn about the history of Munich’s centuries-old markets and Christmas traditions from your guide. You'll also be treated to a lebkuchen, a gingerbread-like cookie that has been a Christmas staple since the 14th century.

Your tour ends at the Medieval Market, where you can continue exploring on your own.

Christian was a great tour guide, not only giving background information about the various markets but also some of the historical sites along the way. Recommended!

This tour was a bit overpriced, but I don't regret it. It was a nice introduction to Munich, as I took this tour just after arriving in the city. While we got to see 3 Christmas Markets, 2 of which we might not have discovered on our own, we also got lots of history and tips. Overall I would absolutely recommend this tour if you do it on your first day.

Had a really nice time. Tour was very informative and very well explained. You get to see things that most probably you would just walk by without noticing. Would recomend to other friends who would be going to Munich during the Christmas period.

If you are staying in the city, this is not necessary as you will be by the Christmas markets and can easily walk to them at your leisure. Our guide gave minimal additional information.
