This tour concludes in the city center of Munich.

Your 2-hour tour begins at Munich Central Station (Hauptbahnhof), where you’ll meet your guide in mid-afternoon and head out into the ornamented streets of Munich's Old Town. Make sure to bundle up until your first cup of glühwein or cider.

Take in the scent of spice cake as you make your way to Christkindlmarkt in Marienplatz, Munich’s oldest Christmas market. Browse the stalls filled with toys, gifts, and homemade delicacies available for purchase.

Continue to the Sendliger Tor market, followed by the Christmas village in Munich Residenz. Your final stop will be the Medieval Market near Odeonsplatz, where you’ll discover an ode to the Bavarian Christmas markets of the Middle Ages. See performances, medieval buskers, colorful costumes, and handicrafts for sale. 

Along the way, learn about the history of Munich’s centuries-old markets and Christmas traditions from your guide. You'll also be treated to a lebkuchen, a gingerbread-like cookie that has been a Christmas staple since the 14th century.

Your tour ends at the Medieval Market, where you can continue exploring on your own.

Patrick, a local resident of Munich, was excellent in his tour. We were a small group of just 6 people which made an intimate tour. Patrick had a good itinerary worked out to see and experience the most in our two hours together. He even handed out Advent calendars. Highly recommend this tour.

Lucy was amazing! We toured several markets all with a different theme. She explained all of the traditions that were on display at each market and what to eat and drink. Medieval, nativity and fairy tail each market was beautiful and unique. She also gave us a lot of history along the way. Well worth the time and money!

This tour was a bit overpriced, but I don't regret it. It was a nice introduction to Munich, as I took this tour just after arriving in the city. While we got to see 3 Christmas Markets, 2 of which we might not have discovered on our own, we also got lots of history and tips. Overall I would absolutely recommend this tour if you do it on your first day.

Had a really nice time. Tour was very informative and very well explained. You get to see things that most probably you would just walk by without noticing. Would recomend to other friends who would be going to Munich during the Christmas period.

Julia_W
, Dec 2016
The tour did what it promised barely. The tour was supposed to take two hours, but because there were so few people, the tour guide really really pushed us through quickly finishing up in an hour. She also got a little testy when I'd ask questions or attempt to grab a snap shot which it the tour had lasted the entire two hours would have been doable. I was glad to get the lay of the land and I went back to the markets at my leisure.

My train didn't get into Munich until 5 minutes after the tour started, I texted and also phoned Radius Tours informing them of this fact but heard nothing back. I went on to do my own thing but was very disappointed with the non response of this company.
