Munich Airport hosts a giant Christmas and Winter Market
Munich Airport boasts Europe’s largest covered outdoor space and during the holidays the airport puts that space to great use by hosting a Christmas and Winter Market in a forest of festively decorated trees.
The holiday festivities at the Munich Airport Center (MAC) will operate daily from Friday, November 17, 2023, through Christmas Eve. Hours are 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily, until Christmas Eve, when the market closes at 4.
What happens at Munich Airport’s Holiday Market?
Munich Airport’s holiday market has more than 40 stalls offering handicrafts, fashion, jewelry, and lots of food and drinks.
There are also ice skating and curling rinks. Skating is 5 euros ($5.33) per person for unlimited time on the ice and includes free skate rental or free skate sharpening if you happen to have your skates with you. Access to the curling rink is 25 euros (about $26) per hour and includes equipment.
The lineup of free entertainment includes ice discos, ice sculpting, Advent wreath making, puppet theater shows, live music, and, of course, visits from Santa Claus.
