What to do in Munich in Winter

As the crowds of Oktoberfest subside and the cold weather sets in, you’d be forgiven for thinking that Munich has little to offer as a holiday destination. Think again. With its Alpine backdrop and festive decorations, this is one place in Europe where you’re guaranteed a postcard-worthy white Christmas, and there are plenty of winter activities to keep you busy.

Sip on mulled wine and munch on freshly baked gingerbread, as you marvel at the handiwork of the local craftsmen at one of Munich’s hugely popular traditional Christmas markets, some of which date back to the 17th century. The most famous is the Christkindl Markt, held in the Old town’s Marienplatz, overlooked by a towering 100-foot Christmas tree, and equally popular is the Tollwood Winter Festival with its bustling international Christmas market, complete with circus performers and live music.
