Paradise for "Weihnachtsmarkt"-lovers: Munich in December!!!!

Munich does not have only one, two or three Christmas markets...There are over 20 different "Weihnachtsmärkte" spread over the Bavarian capital every december....
This year I decided to do a weekend-tour and managed to visit some of them. The "Weihnachtsmarkt am Chinesichem Turm" is lost in the middle of the white Englischen Garten, a nice way to mix nature and city life while sipping on a warm cup smelling like cinnamon and ginger . Afterwards I paid also a visit to the "Middle-Age-ChristmasMarket" in the center of the city. This one takes you some hundred of years away. Here one could not only see people dressed as in the Middle Age/"Mittelalter" but also try some delicious specialties from this time!
The huge hand-made Middle-age-snowballs (sweets) were a nice eye-catcher....
If you like Christmas markets or if you have never visit one, go to Munich...But before this pack nicely, warmely and thick!!!Not only head, hands, but also your legs...because your toes are the part that all warm drinks do not really warm up;-)
