CHRISTMAS MARKETS IN MUNICH WITH CHILDREN

Christmas time is coming!

In preparation of Christmas, beautiful Advent markets open in and around Munich

At Christmas time, Munich and its surroundings are transformed into a romantic Christmas world. Everywhere are small and large, well-known and new Christmas markets that open in the Advent season in Munich. What could be better than going to the Advent market together with the family and braving the everyday stress that often prevails before Christmas? The market stalls are waiting with beautiful crafts and delicious specialties. The smell of Bratwurst, cinnamon and mulled wine is in the air! The children are looking forward to awesome kids program at many child friendly Christmas markets.  They love the craft workshop at the Chinese tower or the children’s program in the open-air museum Glentleiten and at lake Starnberg.

We share with you which Christmas markets for children we like the most!

Christmas market at the Chinese tower with children

The traditional Christmas market at the Chinese Tower is one of the nicest Christmas markets for children in the city center. This Christkindl Markt in Munich is particularly romantic because of its location directly in the park called Englischer Garten. Surrounded by trees you find tiny market stalls offering various handcrafts. A brass ensemble plays Christmas music from the Chinese Tower. Especially for the children are “Opas Schreinerstadl”. At this workshop children can build wooden toys with the guidance of a grandfather. At “Omas Geschichtenstadl” children listen to traditional stories read by a grandmother in a very cozy atmosphere.

Advent market Forsthaus Kasten with children

Outside Munich you find the idyllic Advent market at Forsthaus Kasten. It is beautifully set-up. A variety of craftsmanship is offered by the individual designers in two barns. Enjoy handmade stollen in numerous variations and well-tasting mulled wine while standing around fire baskets. Listen to Christmas music played by a small brass band. The children’s program is enormous. St. Nicholas and Knecht Rupprecht are visiting regularly asking the children the obligatory questions and distributing small gifts. Furthermore children can ride a pony or be pulled by a pony in a small children’s carriage. In the animal area children can admire a living crib. In addition there is a fairytale tent. And there is even a playground. As long as neither low temperatures nor first snowfall stop the children, they can have a lot of fun. The Christmas market is open at the first three Advent Sundays.

Christmas market at open-air museum Glentleiten

On the first weekend of Advent, the Christmas market takes place in the open-air museum Glentleiten. High above the Kochelsee and with views of the surrounding mountains you get easily into Christmas mood. You find regional and handcrafted works for sale. Festive sounds of brass music are in the air. For children they have an interesting program to join for free. From felting to crafting with leather kids can do everything. Parents are attracted by the comfortably heated parlor.

Christmas market La Villa at Lake Starnberg

Also on the first weekend of Advent, the traditional Christmas market at La Villa at Lake Starnberg takes place. The atmosphere is unique. Here you can experience the advent season with all senses. The whole area of ​​La Villa is lovely decorated in a unique Christmas style. The smell of hot chestnuts is in the air. The are mainly local exhibitors. Many are there year after year, yet there are also always some new one to bring in new vibes. A successful mix! Delicious food is provided. You can choose between hearty Schupfnudeln with bacon and cabbage, bratwurst or tarte flambée. And because we are on Lake Starnberg, the tarte flambée is even available with truffles 😉 So get there hungry! Regularly a brass ensemble plays beautiful Christmas tunes. Children have a lot of fun in the craft studio and with the pony riding. The Christmas market at La Villa is a wonderful start into the Christmas season!

Winter magic in Salzburg with children

The winter and Christmas flair is something very special in Salzburg. All streets are decorated with festive trees and many lights. Christmas music is pouring out of the shops, the pastry shops have turned their shop windows into Christmas bakeries. Lovely decorated Christmas markets are everywhere in the city. It’s fun to peek into every alley and discover a hidden market behind it. Together with the old buildings and the mountains in the back, you can not help but completely forfeit the Christmas vibes.
