We’re not saying you should plan a lengthy layover during the holiday season, but it might just be worth spending an extra hour or so at the airport. Live entertainment rounds out the offerings, and gives you something to listen to when gobbling up the seasonal delicacies—like German gingerbread—and downing mulled wine (look for the "Glühwein").
The market began welcoming travelers and Münchners alike in November, and the seasonal shenanigans run through December 30. The market runs daily from 11am-9pm, but the winter fun doesn’t end once the market closes its doors for the season. The airport is also offering up special holiday tours that take place between December 22 and January 6—Merry Christmas live from the airport.
