For Part II of my Munich photo series, we remain in the miscellaneous section. However, it just so happens that I have a big chunk of photos from a couple of Christmas markets, so that will be the theme for today’s post.
While Nürnberg has arguably the largest and most famous market (we went there on our first full day in Germany and to these markets on our fourth, so we’re already out of chronological order, but I’m saving our Nürnberg photos for a later post), Munich is chock-a-block full of smaller markets, each with their own unique theme or character. I made a list of all the ones I wanted to hit, including “Pink Christmas” in the Glockenbachviertel, the heart of Munich’s gay community, and the Mittelalterlicher Weihnachtsmarkt, the medieval Christmas market, in Wittelsbacherplatz. Unfortunately, we never made it to “Pink Christmas,” but we did go to the medieval one and several more that we happened upon while walking around the city.
First up, the medieval Weihnachtsmarkt:
Now we are moving on towards the central Weihnachtsmarkt in Marienplatz:
Here we are at yet a third Weihnachtsmarkt all in the same afternoon (Das Weihnachtsdorf im Kaiserhof der Residenz direkt am Odeonsplatz):
I think I’m going to do one more miscellaneous post before getting to the good stuff! (Can you tell that I enjoy typing the word miscellaneous?)
