I had zero expectations when I found Tollwood on Google Maps after searching Christmas Markets in Munich. When the taxi dropped us off, I wasn't sure what we had been taken to. It ended up being very, very cool. There is something for everyone here. The tents are elaborately decorated and themed. There's many options for food. I've never seen... More

Somewhat disappointing compared to other markets visited. Much of what was on sale could have been bought anywhere. Did buy some local cheese, excellent but not cheap. Los of drinking and eating places. Good young nightlife. Probably wouldn't bother going for market, more of a good night out drinking.

Every trip to Munich has to include a visit to Tollwood over Christmas period. This time we managed to actually get through all the halls as it wasnt as hectically crowded. There is such a great choice of amazing food for everyones varying tastebuds...ingenious crafts and of course Feuerzangenbowles

Too much crowd, too many wasted people, aggressive behaviour, extremely high prices of the beer. That is the best time to take vacation if you live in Munich.

My friend and I didn’t know what to make of this market, as it looked like it was a vast tented village created out in the wild or open spaces of Munich. As we had thought it was a “Christmas” market we were surprised to see that it was a tented “Variety” and “Entertainment” area with plenty of stalls selling... More

From September 19th to October 4th is again O'zapft time. The Oktoberfest in Munich is the largest public festival in the world. It takes place on the Theresienwiese in Munich since 1810.

Various marquees with stands selling all manner of crafts and gifts. Usual mix of food stands. Not really a Christmas market, but worth a visit.
