Munich, Bavarian Christmas Markets and the best vegan meal in Germany so far


We truly enjoyed a couple of nights in Munich, checking out this beautiful city and all the Christmas markets. 

If you love traditional Christmas things this is the place for you! Every corner of the city seems to have a Xmas market, and they are beautiful by day and even more by night! The atmosphere is festive,  with tourists and locals mingle with mugs of mulled wine (buy the mugs or return them for a refund after drinking).

Hot chocolate and cake break at Woerner's Café  for the best view or Marienplatz. The hot chocolate is a kind of 'mix-your-own': you get a glass of hot frothy milk and the chocolate of your choice on the side, to pour in.

Another interesting place to eat in Marienplatz is Ratskeller, a large cellar restaurant possibly not so good with food but quite cool for ambience. There are a few veggie choices too.

The shops are as cool as the markets for Xmas decorations and cute souvenirs. For food and sweet things I was really impressed with Dallmayr , where we bought our Stollen, and I could have spent hours looking at their amazing Xmas trees in the windows! One tree was all about bubbly, one about coffee, one about sweet things and one about seafood (and even if I don't eat seafood I found the idea really cool and could think of one all about vegetarian food ;-) !!)

The best Vegan meal I had so far in Germany (albeit, I have been in the country only a few times) was at Max Pett - beautiful and juicy vegan 'cheese burger' for Max and tasty vegan Schnitzel for me and Peter with perfect chips (Peter had potato salad instead) and all the trimmings. Big portions, plus a good selection of non alcoholic wines and beers. 

Back to the Christmas markets and shops, and creating memories!
