Fasching Carnival, Munich

Rung in on 11th November, 2022

Most events take place between 20th January, 2022 and 20th February, 2023

The crowning of the carnival prince signals the start of the city-wide celebrations for Fasching. Colourful parades, day-to-night street parties and more than 800 masquerade and fancy dress balls fill Munich’s social calendar for around three months, from mid-November until mid-February. Among the most intriguing displays is the dance of market women. At the Viktualienmarkt, one of the oldest farmers markets in Munich, on the morning of Shrove Tuesday, you’ll witness the flamboyant and fun dance, rehearsed for months and an undoubted highlight of the Munich Fasching.

Christmas market, Marienplatz

Expect delicious aromas of roasting chestnuts, rich, spicy mulled wine, and mouthwatering local delicacies set against the Neues Rathaus, or new town hall, in the Bavarian capital’s charming Marienplatz square. Locally known as Christkindlmarkt, Marienplatz’ Christmas market epitomises Munich’s festive spirit. Here, the bright stalls are stacked high with Christmas souvenirs, from hand-blown glass ornaments to hand-carved wooden toys.
