Did you know that the first traditional Christmas markets originated in Germany? From the end of November, Bavaria’s unique Christkindl markets once again offer you traditional stalls where you can buy Bavarian handicrafts, regional specialities and Christmas biscuits, and enjoy the atmosphere in extraordinary settings.
Also get inspired by Bavaria’s authentic and cherished winter traditions during your visit.
