The steam can be seen coming from the cups of gluhwein, as gloved hands raise the warming vessels to cold lips. The smell of cinnamon, oranges, cloves and red wine tickles red noses as it warms and becomes Gluhwein on the outdoor stoves. Bright lights and colours are everywhere. Salted pretzels and roasting chestnuts are available on every corner, this is the Marienplatz Christmas Market. Munich’s largest and oldest Christmas market that is a beautiful spectacle and great for exploring.
Marienplatz Christmas Markets is a fantastic place to walk around, soak up the atmosphere, and pick up some bits and bobs. Have you been? What did you think?
