Christmas in Munich
Mr. TWS and I are very excited about our German/Austrian trip to kickoff the holiday season. Jetlagged as we were after arriving in Munich the other day, we ventured out into the heart of Altstadt (Old Town) to soak up the Christmas spirit and enjoy great food and drink in this beautiful Bavarian city as a light snow fell. I hope you enjoy the sampling of first day of sightseeing in Munich in these photos selected by Mr. TWS.
This captured what we like about many European cities — the charm of the Old World blended with the bustle of a big city.
These skaters didn’t let the cold weather interfere with their fun at the ice rink.
At the Karl’s Gate entrance to the Weihnachtsmarkt (Christmas Market), the crowds make their way toward Marienplatz, the center of the festivities.
I look a bit cold but was warmed by a cup of Glühwein. Mr. TWS captured my excitement getting set to dig into this delicious bratwurst sandwich.
The department store display windows were full of very cute and creative animated displays. People of all ages were smiling as they watched the scenes.
The holiday spirit is alive at Marienplatz!
Stay tuned for the rest of our our trip to kick off the holidays in Germany and Austria.
