Five shops to visit near Munich Christmas market

Munich’s Christmas market dates back to the 14th century. Today the market is held in Marienplatz, in front of the city’s town hall, and offers traditional Bavarian gifts including wood carvings, gingerbread from Nuremburg and exquisite glassware from the Bavarian forests. After you’ve had your fill of gingerbread and glühwein, visit some of Munich’s best stores for gifts

Sally Ashley-Cound,

Ludwig Beck
Ludwig Beck, one of Munich’s busiest department stores, is found on the edge of Marienplatz. This is the place to seek gift ideas for even the most difficult people to please; offerings range from music to cosmetics, exclusive perfumes, fashion and accessories.

Bijou Brigitte
Jewellery is always a good place to start when buying a gift and Bijou Brigitte has styles to suit everyone. A piece from the sterling silver collection would make a perfect present and the Christmas collection of brooches, earrings, necklaces and more is particularly festive.

Agent Provocateur
When it comes to buying lingerie, a gift from Agent Provocateur will never fail to impress as it is designed to make a woman feel as good on the inside as she will look on the outside. As well as lingerie, you’ll also find the full range of Agent Provocateur’s signature perfumes.

Perfümerie Brückner
A small, privately owned perfumery in the heart of Munich, Parfümerie Bruckner opened in 1903 and has been providing fragrant scents to the German aristocracy for nearly as long. Here you will find a unique selection of classic and modern perfumes and colognes which will make a special gift for anyone.

Apple products frequently top the list of the most-wanted Christmas gifts so the Apple store just off Marienplatz is one shop not to miss. One of the new brightly coloured iPods or the latest iPhone, if you’re lucky enough to get your hands on one, would make an ideal gift.
