04 Visiting the Munich Christmas Markets – Podcast Episode 4

In my Podcast 04 in my travel podcast series, I’m taking you to the Christmas Markets in Munich getting into the festive spirit, with snow on the ground, German carol singers and the smell of gingerbread in the air. You’ll hear about my visit to the Residenz Palace, the market we found in it’s courtyards, the ethnic, alternative Tollwood Winter Festival and all the Bavarian food and drinking specialities we tried while we were there.

The Christmas Market in the Residenz Courtyard in Munich

The Christmas Market in the Residenz Courtyard in Munich

This was a weekend visit that I took with my parents and our visit was ideal to get us into the Christmas spirit, but all too short to really explore the city of Munich. I’d love to return in the summer when the air won’t be so chilly and I could see something of the parks and lakes near Munich and the alpine scenery of Bavaria. I hope you enjoy the slideshow of photos from the trip which is designed to accompany the podcast.

    Great podcast! I can’t believe they didn’t have German food – hilarious! I totally agree with you regarding too much Palace viewing. I get bored with that stuff rather easily…I’d rather sit outside and people watch normally!
