Kids entertainment and delicious food!
The traditional Christmas market at the Chinesischer Turm is one of the magical places to be during Christmas time. As soon as it opens its doors, it immediately captivates every visitor into the spell of the Christmas magic. The Christmas market in Munich is particularly romantic because of its location directly in the park, surrounded by trees, winding market lodges and the traditional Christmas music played live.
At the market lodges you will find gift ideas, Christmas decorations and a lot of handmade dolls made of natural materials. At the nice-smelling lodges there are warming mulled wine / children’s punch as well as many delicious treats. Especially”Schupfnudeln” and “Ochsensemmeln” are very worth to try.
The entertainment program for children seems endless. Kids can experience the exciting Christmas time here in a traditional and contemplative way. For example, in Grandpa’s Schreinerstadl, small craftsmen are allowed to assemble wooden toys themselves or come to rest in grandma’s cozy “Geschichtenstadl” while listening to exciting Christmas stories. You will find detailed information below. For the slightly older children, the curling lane offers children the chance to whiz across the ice. A carousel is also available for the children as well as numerous visits from Santa Claus and the Christ Child.
We can recommend you to visit the Christmas market on weekdays or on weekends while it is still light. Otherwise it is very fast, very full.
Tip: The playground that you reach via the exit at Grandpa’s Schreinerstadl is always good for a little change.

Grandpa’s Schreinerstadl (open from Tuesday – Sunday)
Even from far away you can hear the hammering that comes from Grandpa’s Schreinerstadl. Inside, children are allowed to assemble wooden toys themselves. Locomotives, tractors, dollhouses and much more are available and make children’s eyes light up. The small artisans are accompanied by the craft grandpa, who explains in the beginning how the tools are used and the wood parts are put together. Even during crafting, the children are welcome to contact him with questions. Parents may either attend the event or wait for a while at the bank in the Stadl. Incidentally, the wooden parts are made by the Munich Pfennigparade, a facility for people with physical disabilities. Service charge: 6 Euros
Grandma’s Story Stable (open Tuesday – Sunday)
In the cozy cottage, the children are invited to listen to the exciting stories of the granny and make themselves comfortable on wooden sledges with lambskins. The stories that are read are Christmas tales and stories. Every 30 minutes there is a new lecture. Be sure to be there in time in front of the cottage and take a look at the program, which story suits your kids interest. The reading lessons are free.
