Until recently, it was considered how it would still work - but in view of the increasing number of corona infections it will probably not work: there will be no Christmas markets in Advent 2020 in Munich.

  • Munich is banning all

    Christmas markets

    throughout the city for 2020

    .

  • The reason is the rapidly increasing number of

    corona infections

    .

  • The ban also affects other markets such as

    Winter Tollwood

    .

Munich - There will be no

Christmas markets

in Munich this winter

.

The city crisis team decided on Friday afternoon.

With that,

Lord Mayor Dieter Reiter (SPD)

and the top of the town hall have not only

canceled

the large Christmas market in the

pedestrian zone

- but also

all private markets

.

The reason for the cancellation is the

corona pandemic

with steadily increasing numbers of infections.

The city most recently reported 348 new cases and a

seven-day incidence

of

129.8

.

Christmas markets canceled due to coronavirus in Munich - despite the pandemic concept

The decision had already been expected before the meeting of the crisis team, especially since some events had already been canceled.

The traditional

Nuremberg market is

just as special as the

winter tollwood

.

The Christmas markets in

Pasing

, at the

airport

and at the

Chinese Tower

had also already been canceled.

Despite the increasing numbers, the city had tried to

secure the market on Marienplatz

with its own

corona concept

.

More on this in the video: Munich extends- Are the other Christmas markets now following suit?

Accordingly, it should have started on

November 23rd

.

The feeders had the option of voluntarily extending it to January 10th.

The area of ​​the popular Christmas market would have been enlarged in order to be able to comply with the distance rules.

The market would have stretched from the Old Town Hall to Stachus and from Sendlinger Tor to Diener and Weinstrasse.

Recently, it was considered to split up the market more, with locations at Marienplatz, Theresienwiese and Mariahilfplatz.

In addition, there would have been - analogous to the

Kirchweihdult

- access restrictions.

All of this is now obsolete.

Out of the magic!
