JOIN US AT THESE TRADITIONAL CHRISTMAS MARKETS MUNICH December 3 For more than 700 years, the Munich Christmas Market has offered traditional Bavarian and unique Christmas gifts, including wood carvings from Oberammergau, gingerbread (Lebkuchen) from Nuremberg and exquisite glassware from the Bavarian Forest. Nativity figurines, bee wax candles, chimney sweeps made of plums and almonds are just some of the many thousands of traditional Christmas gift ideas on display. There are also several other Christmas markets in Munich spread throughout the city, such as Tollwood and the medieval Christmas markets. Price: $39/adult, $29/ child (3-12), $10/child under 3

LEIPZIG

December 11 With more than 250 sparkling stalls located in the historic town center, the Leipzig Christmas market is not only one of the oldest, but also one of the largest Christmas markets in Germany. Traditionally, the main area of the Christmas market is Marktplatz (market square), where visitors will be amazed at a Saxon spruce Christmas tree over 65 feet in height, and enjoy a wide variety of performances at the market square stage. The historical Christmas market of “Ancient Leipzig” at the Naschmarkt Square entices visitors with local traditional crafts and art. Leipzig also has a traditional Finnish village with food, sweaters, coats and crafts. Price: $39/adult, $29/child (3-12), $10/child under 3

Every visitor here will find something: Christmas pyramids, smoking figures and candleholders from the Erzgebirge Mountains, indigo-dyed printed textile products and pottery from Lusatia, gingerbread from Pulsnitz, filigree lace products from Plauen, Herrenhut Advent stars, blown-glass tree ornaments from Lauscha, and of course specialties from Dresden itself, such as the traditional 'Pflaumentoffel', a chimney-sweep figure made of dried prunes. Visitors can also watch the carvers, glass-blowers and bakers in action at the crafts market. Price: $49/adult, $39/child (3-12), $10/child under 3
