Getting Festive in Munich


Travellers killing time at Germany’s Munich Airport will find it easy over the next six weeks as the annual Winter Market returns to the Munich Airport Center (MAC) – between the two terminals – from Nov. 22 to Dec. 28.

Once again, the MAC Forum will be transformed into a winter wonderland. Visitors can take a stroll among the more than 40 stands offering gift ideas and seasonal treats and enjoy the pre-Christmas sights and smells. This year’s 16th edition also has a few new attractions and activities in store for visitors.

In addition to a larger ice skating and curling rink and a line-up of live entertainment on stage, this year’s Winter Market will introduce an ice slide. The curved track, 50 metres long and five metres wide, will be set up in the Airbrau Beer Garden. Another new attraction is the open air cinema, with free showings of popular movies presented every Monday on the MetaTwist Tower starting at 6:30 p.m. Tuesdays are all about fun and games for children, with a wide variety of activities in Kinderland from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m., including treasure hunts, face painting and arts and crafts works.

The Winter Market will be open daily from 11 a.m. until 9 p.m., except on Christmas Eve (Dec. 24) when the stands and the airport shops will close at 5 p.m.
