Christmas markets and more
Snow in December? We can't promise it, we've had winters with lots of snow in December and a "green Xmas" and the other way round, or little snow till mid-January. However, you shouldn't need
to travel far if you're interested in cross-country skiing or winter walks, In Seefeld and Leutasch, just
across the Austrian border, it's always a bit colder and if there's snow it usually stays longer than in Mittenwald. Traffic should be no problem at all on the autobahn, and from Garmisch to Mittenwald
there's no problem usually, the authorities are well used to mountains of snow hereabouts.
The Christmas market in Innsbruck (Austria) is very nice, and it would be a good idea to take the
train there (wonderful views have from the train down to the Inn valley, and the market isn't far from
the station, so you can enjoy a few glasses of "Glühwein" (mulled wine) or "Jagertee" (hunterman's tea, black tea with a special mix of strong alcohol)!
In Munich there's a number of different Xmas markets. The main one on Marienplatz is nice and very
traditional (woodcarvings etc.) but a bit "touristy", there's one at U-Bahn station Theresienwiese (Tollwood market) with a focus on international arts and crafts and all sorts of food in the open air
and in big circus tents.
