Outside of Munich’s city centre crowds diminish and it’s no different around Münchner Freiheit. When I’m in town meeting friends, the area is complete with cafés, pubs, bistros, and restaurants. The square is also home to the neighbourhood’s Christmas market, which for area residents is a relaxed and quieter alternative. Various stalls ply food, drink, and handcrafted items of various shapes and sizes.
With MVV public transport, the Schwabing Christmas market at Münchner Freiheit is accessible with the U3 or U6 subway (underground) lines in about 15 to 20 minutes from the city centre to station Münchner Freiheit. Eichenau and Pasing are respectively 25 and 12 km west of Munich’s city centre, each accessible with S-Bahn trains.
