Happy Souvenir Sunday!
Munich, Germany’s official Oktoberfest celebration is winding down now and many folks have no doubt spent all their time hanging out at the fairgrounds drinking oversize mugs of beer instead of shopping for lovely gifts for their loved ones.
So it’s a good thing that the traditional Oktoberfest frosted gingerbread, or lebkuchen, hearts sold all over town this time of year are also sold at the Munich Airport (MUC).
(Kimberly Krol of Global Traveler models a welcome cookie)
The cookies come in all sizes and most of the ones I saw (and bought) at the airport are priced under $10.
If you can get them home without tearing off the plastic and having a few nibbles, then these offbeat, very much “of the city” cookies are a perfect Souvenir Sunday purchase.
If you don’t think you can be trusted not to nibble during that long flight home, then I offer these little guys, also found at MUC, as a safe Souvenir Sunday option.
Have you found a great souvenir at the an airport? If it’s under $10, “of’ the city, and somewhat offbeat, then please snap a photo and send it along. It may be featured on a future edition of Souvenir Sunday here at StuckatTheAirport.com.
