Let’s explore Munich’s Christkindl Markts

Sleigh bells ring…. Are you listening? In Munich, snow is not glistening. It’s actually pretty much non-existent. We don’t have a winter wonderland yet, but Christmas is coming none-the less.
Chriskindlmarkts and the smell of candied almonds is what triggers a Munich Christmas for me. There a plenty around that you can visit. Here is a list of the top in my humble opinion. Bundle up the kids…. or your significant other and head out to enjoy one.
