Sample the sweet Lebkuchen treats

Meet your guide at Munich Central Station (Hauptbahnhof) in early afternoon to begin your 2-hour exploration of several Christmas markets near Munich's Old Town. Your knowledgeable guide will share the history of Christmas markets in Munich -- which dates back 600 years -- and explain the displays at the markets and various German Christmas traditions.

Visit the smaller Sendliger Tor market, wander the Christmas village in the courtyard of the Munich Residenz, and admire the Nativity scene at Old Town Hall. You'll also go to the Medieval Market near Odeonsplatz with its handmade stalls and stall-holders dressed in period costume.

Savor your complimentary Lebkuchen, a gingerbread-like cake that's a local seasonal treat. Throughout your Munich Christmas market tour, you'll have the opportunity to purchase hand-crafted gifts and hot mulled wine (Glühwein). Your tour of Munich's captivating Christmas markets ends at the Medieval Market, so it's easy to continue shopping on your own!
