A very merry Christmas, Munich style.

Munich's enthusiasm for celebrating is not exclusively limited to Oktoberfest. It also manifests itself every year over the Christmas season, when a jovial mood takes over the city. As tradition dictates, Munich holds a huge market for nativity scenes and Christmas figurines - the biggest such market in Germany.  This a unique opportunity to admire cribs of all sizes and styles, as well as a gigantic 30m high Christmas tree illuminated with 2500 candles. Each area has its own distinct atmosphere: visitors can therefore listen to traditional music, buy organic products, attend circus performances, transvestite shows, or rock concerts. After a few hours and a certain number of glasses of mulled wine, you will surely be singing along with the Christmas carols!
