MUNICH GERMANY MARIENPLATZ - MUNICH GERMANY

Munich MarienplatzMarienplatz is located in a center area of Munich. This pedestrian only zone can feel like a mini city. There is plenty to do and see. The Marienplatz offers you a smaller view of Munich, the old buildings, restaurants, festivals and shopping. There are some museums located here also.

During the Christmas season there is a Christmas Market that comes to the square. The Germans call it the Christkindmarkt. It starts on the 28th of November and ends on Christmas Eve. This is one of the oldest festivals around dating back to the 14th century. The Marienplatz hasn’t always been home for the Christmas Market. It wasn’t until 1972 that the market settled into the heart of Munich. Thousands of Germans, and tourists gather for the tree lighting. The Market is open Monday to Friday from 10am to 8:30pm. On Saturday they are open from 9 am to 8:30pm. Sunday the market opens at 10am until 7:30pm and even on the 24th of December the market is open from 10am to 2pm. Vendors sell handmade German items, ornaments, and other Christmas decorations. The food is a slice of Germany, you can find sausages and bratwurst, backed apples and roasted nuts. The Gluhwein which is a mulled wine is there to warm you up on the cold winter nights. You can’t go to the market without enjoying a cup of the wine.

Besides the Christmas Market, other festivals and markets come to the Marienplatz. There is always something going on. Walking around you can find cafes which sell Bavarian treats, and wonderful cups of cappuccinos. This is one of the places where you can see a little bit of history, do some shopping and enjoy a great meal.
