Tollwood Winter Festival 2015, Munich (24 November – 31 December)

chocolART Festival, Tübingen (1 – 6 December)

Once again, Munich’s Theresienwiese will be tranformed into a huge spectacle. The Tollwood Festival will host a variety of events from enchanting theatre and circus performances and concerts to comedians, plays and cabarets. A handicraft Christmas market, organic food, as well as a huge New Year’s Eve party and gala round off the programme. Under the motto ’clean is keen’, the festival makes waste and recycling a subject of discussion throughout its program.

Tübingen, a traditional university town in the southwest of Germany, will celebrate Germany’s largest chocolate festival in December. Chocolate enthusiasts can taste chocolate delicacies from around the world at the Old Town’s open-air market, join a chocolate-making class, indulge in a chocolate massage or visit tasting sessions and chocolate art exhibitions.
