A Holiday Stroll Through Munich
December 21, 2012 by Robin Plaskoff Horton
Hi dear Urban Gardens readers! My name is Igor and I am the blogger over at Happy Interior Blog. I am based in Munich, Germany, and thought I’ll take you outdoor interested folks for a festive stroll through the charmingly decorated city. Everything is set on holiday mode in Munich and I wanted to show you some typical sights of the Bavarian capital.
Being in Munich in December means hopping from one Christmas market to the other. The squares and places of the city are turning into Christmas markets every December. Many little huts surround a large and festive lit Christmas tree.
The air is filled with the smell of caramelized almonds, gingerbread and mulled wine. Moreover, the Christmas markets are the best place to stock up with handmade, local artisanale holiday decoration.
Little figurines for a bespoke nativity set, handcarved, wooden ornaments or traditional little ceramic houses for tealights made in the region known as Bavarian Woods.
If you happen to plan a trip to Munich in December don’t miss the charming Christmas markets on the central Marienplatz, the serene market at the Chinese Tower in the English Garden city park, the quirky‚ Pink Christmas’ market in the hip Glockenbach quarter or the secluded Christmas market in the courtyard of the Munich residence.
Oh, and don’t forget to give me a sign! Happy holidays from Germany!
