“Christmas Markets!”
Reviewed December 26, 2012

This location is loaded with Christmarket booths selling their food, wine, beer, and wares. It was packed with visitors and was tough to move at times. There is interesting structures and architecture surround the square and is definitely worth a visit!

“Christmas markets!”
Reviewed December 26, 2012

Went here specifically for the Christmas market since it's the biggest in Germany. Wasn't that impressed since it seems most markets have the same stuff. However, we still had a good time. Try Esslingen's Christmas market - they have a medeival market that's a lot of fun for everyone.

“Friendly stall-holders made for a fun stroll”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

Visited the market on a slightly grey, drizzly and windy weekday. Square was crowded, mainly because there were many other tourists looking forward to the 12 noon Mannleinlaufen performance at the Frauenkirche. Once the crowds had dispersed, the locals took over the market again.

Good place for a stroll looking at the stalls and local produce. Also managed to find my lunch, a seafood, cheese & olive sandwich - yummy! But overall, my experience was best remembered for the friendly stall-holders, some of whom were happy to speak English with me since I couldn't handle German.

Tip: Public toilets were not easy to find in and around the market - eventually found one in a nearby McDonald's.
