Best Places to Spend Christmas

Best Places to Spend Christmas: Munich

Christian Kerber

Munich

Why Go: Winter in the Bavarian capital means a hundred-foot-tall Christmas tree in the Marienplatz, about two dozen Christmas markets (weekdays draw fewer crowds), and mulled wine and gingerbread, served on a tram that crosses the old city.

Where to Stay: The modern, 72-room Louis Hotel ($$) is a snowball’s throw from the lively Viktualienmarkt and has a natural stone fireplace in the lobby.

Don’t Miss: Every evening at 5:30 from November 25 through Christmas Eve, there’s live holiday music on the balcony of the town hall.
