Photo Essay: Christmas Markets in Austria and Germany, 2022 Edition

December 24, 2022

The Münchner Christkindlmarkt at Marienplatz in Munich's city center

Christmas markets across the globe – with their colorful booths and glittering lights on charming cobblestone streets – are back, if perhaps a bit subdued due to both the ongoing pandemic, rising energy costs, and a continued global supply chain crisis.

Glühwein, roasted chestnuts, and gingerbread beckon and small wooden figurines and tree ornaments are yours for the taking.

Here are photos from our favorite Christkindlmärkte, or Christmas markets.

Indeed, just three years ago, we visited over a dozen markets on the Continent, including the Münchner Christkindlmarkt at Marienplatz and the Christkindlmarkt at Sendlinger Tor, both in Munich, Germany; the Weihnachtsmarkt at Mirabellplatz and the Hellbrunner Adventmarkt, near Schloß Hellbrunn, both in Salzburg, Austria; and Advent at the Marktplatz Mondsee, adjacent to the Basilica St. Michael, in Mondsee, Austria, which of course is the chapel in which Captain von Trapp marries Maria in the movie, “The Sound of Music.”

One could say that you haven’t truly experienced Christmas unless you’ve been to a Christmas market in Europe. They are an excellent source for traditional gifts, mugs of Glühwein, and an unparalleled festive feeling.

Christmas markets can be found in every major city and town in many countries and the best are found in Austria, France, and Germany, and we can’t wait to visit them again.

Here is a photographic look at Christmas markets in Austria, Germany, and the United States.
