Heart of Gold

The heart of Munich, Marienplatz, is radiant this time of year – with the gold of the 60+ foot Christmas tree radiating off the Rathaus and the stalls of the Christkindl Markt. Known as Munich’s living room, everyone who visits Munich comes through this platz. But that’s not the surprising thing. It’s that the locals love it too. If you are in Munich, be sure to check it out – but like most of Munich – know that it closes early, generally by 9 pm. It doesn’t stop people from coming downtown – for the nightlife, for the restaurants, and for the nearby bars.

I've been in the 'platz' several times but, never at Christmas time. This looks very inviting.

I've been living in Munich for three years now and never get bored to see nice photos of the city :)

Weeks and weeks late, just to say what a great picture. I've been in Munich in late Nov/early Dec and just loved this market.

Hope you're having a great holiday!
