Christmas markets 2014

This weekend the Christmas market season has started in Germany. Nearly every town or little village has one, even if it is for just one day. Munich is a big city so there are many places with Christmas markets. I'll try to show some of them. Today I walked past the Xmas market at Marienplatz, that is right in the city center in front of the townhall. In my opinion it is very commercial. No wonder, because the area around Marienplatz is one of the largest shopping areas in Germany.

If someone wants to show some of their Christmas markets - please go ahead, I am curious how it looks in different places of the world.

I love Glühwine!!

I used to drink it every year! I will show our Christmas market, but there's a lot of people, it's so crowded!

one of my favorite drinks in winter, too .... especially at the Xmas market. Usually that's the stand with the biggest crowd in front ;)

Today I went to the Middle Ages Xmas market at Wittelbsbacherplatz. I like it a lot, it is different from the other markets. Stands are like tents or old wooden houses, People are dressed in costumes, stuff is not so commercial.

Another day ... another Christmas market - it is the one in the inner courtyard in the former king's residence in Munich.
