What You Can Expect

Munich Christmas Markets Tour

Sample the sweet Lebkuchen treats

Your festive 2-hour tour of Munich’s most spectacular Christmas markets begins at Munich Central Station (Hauptbahnhof), where you’ll meet your friendly guide in mid-afternoon and head out into the ornamented streets of Munich Old Town. Make sure to bundle up until your first cup of glühwein or cider.

Delight in the sparkle of illuminated Bavarian huts and the warm smell of spice cakes as you make your way to Christkindlmarkt in Marienplatz, Munich’s oldest Christmas market. Wander through the cozy stalls and marvel at Bavarian specialties, nostalgic toys and homemade delicacies. If whimsy takes you, indulge in a fried sausage or hot roasted nuts (own expense). 

Don’t fill your baskets or bellies yet! You’ll head next to the quaint 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 market of the Middle Ages. See elaborate performances, medieval buskers, colorful costumery and an array of unique goods. 

Along the way, enjoy insightful commentary from your local guide. You’ll learn the history of Munich’s centuries-old markets, the meaning of prevailing holiday displays and unique German Christmas traditions. To honor the great German tradition of eating, enjoy a complimentary lebkuchen, a gingerbread-like cookie that has been a Christmas staple since the 14th century.

Your tour ends at the Medieval Market, so grab a piping hot cup of glühwein and continue the festivities on your own.

This was my third trip to Munich. I had never visited the Christmas Markets before. This tour was excellent, my tour guide was Anushka, and she was fantastic. She was very knowledgeable about the area and she was lively and very entertaining. The two hour tour went quickly but there was plenty of time to sightsee and experience what Munich had to offer. I would recommend this tour to everyone. Thank you Anushka for being pleasant, personable and very helpful.

We took this christmas markets tour on our first full day in Munich so it helped us to get a sense of the lay our of the city. The tour guide took us to a variety of the many Christmas markets and described distinctions of each. Our guide was knowledgeable of the markets, as well as of Munich, and showed us historical buildings along the way I would recommend this tour.

LOTS of walking but it was great. This is the way to see the markets...after so many they all look the same, but you learn this while visiting the 5 markets and then can return on your own to actually shop at the ones you enjoyed. Would recommend as a great value.
