Travelling can be pretty stressful at times, especially if you have to negotiate your way through a busy airport. So how about an idea that takes the stress out of it all? Well for the 18th consecutive year, the covered space between the terminals at Munich Airport has been transformed into a winter wonderland. There are more than 40 stands, situated amid 450 real Christmas trees, offering seasonal treats and local handicrafts.
The highlight of the market is the huge ice rink - skating is free of charge, and rental skates are available for a small fee. There are also a variety of acts to keep visitors entertained every day from 11am until 9pm including live musical acts helping to create a festive atmosphere.
I think it's a fantastic idea, and something that should be replicated around the world to help everyone get in the mood for fun! The Christmas and Winter Market will close on December the 30th. For the full programme of this year's market click here.
