I see it everywhere already…it seems as though here in the US Christmas is pushed at you right after Halloween. What happened to Thanksgiving people?? Anyhow, moving on. Even though Munich winters leave something to be desired for me as far as weather goes, there is one thing I am looking forward to… that festive month leading up to the Christmas holiday.

Gluhwein, holiday markets, Tollwood, and downtown decorations really make that month of December quite bearable. Cities all around Europe decorate for the holiday season, but in my humble opinion, the Germans and Austrians really do things up right. For the weeks leading up to Christmas, it’s like a little holiday wonderland in these areas and I love it.

This year will be only my second time being in Munich for the holiday season, so I am looking forward to capturing a bit more of the festivities. Here are a couple of my favorites from Munich and around!
