To find the festive lights of the Wittelsbacher Christkindlmarkt, you need to walk past the Theatinerkirche St. Kajetan and the famous Feldhernhalle, and take a left into Briennerstrasse. The first things you will spot are the twinkling lights and signature wooden huts. All elements of this market are an ode to the middle ages. Everything sold in this market (even the delicious food!) is inspired by that time period. All products are intentionally designed using natural materials. Even the live band plays lively music from this age!
Schwabing Christmas Market
If you’re into art and history, the Schwabing Christmas market is the ideal place for you. It was first founded in the 1970’s as a way for underrepresented artists to exhibit their masterpieces. There can be upwards of 100 exhibitors at any time, each one showcasing their talents with a unique style and flair.
A jury actually selects which artists will be allowed to exhibit their work, so you know the quality is absolutely spectacular. As you wander amongst the stalls, I highly suggest you take in the details of the craftsmanship. The intricacies of the art they’re selling are remarkable, and any piece you walk away with is a true work of art.
