Munich’s finest Artists Market
Over 100 artists from all over Germany create a place in this hectic world where one can gather, relax and enjoy the unique atmosphere that is the “Schwabing’s Chistmas Market”. The concept has been one of an artists market from the very beginning. An unmistakable flair can be found here with the high level of artistic talent and craftsmanship. This is further underlined by the quality of the daily cultural programme and fine foods.
All concerts and events are free of charge!
Already in the early 1970’s a number of artists, who were to be found during the summer on the ‘Art Mile’ in the Leopold Street, began to show their work at the former Swiss House in the run up to Christmas.
In 1975 the idea of an artists market, with proper stalls and events, was born. With the backing of the local council headed by Mrs. von Welser-Ude, the Schwabing Chistmas Market was founded.
A jury is responsible for chosing the work shown as well as finding new exhibitors. This ensures that all exhibited work comes from the studios and workshops of the artists.
