Each year the city of Munich (Germany) runs a Christkindl Tram ride through the city centre. It usually starts the last week of November and ends shortly prior to Christmas. I chanced upon this unique treat while I was walking along the underground and saw the ad poster.
One should take the Sendlinger Tor line and above ground you can find the ticket booth. At only €1.50 for adults and 50 cents for kids aged 6-14, this indeed is a treat. From 3:30pm till 7:30pm, the tram goes around the city for half an hour. On weekends it starts earlier at 11am.Half an hour prior to the first tram ride on a weekday, I arrived at this area with the Chriskidle Tram sign. I didn’t know where to get the tickets. I decided to ask one of the men near the tram sign where I can get the tickets, and he said “you get it here”. He turned out to be the ticket attendant who was about to open the ticket booth. I didn’t have any german dictionary with me so did not realize that “Fahrkarten” meant Ticket
About 15 mins later, another booth opens filled with drinks, gingerbread and hot spiced wine. It was freezing while we waited for the tram outside but it was fun watching the children play and the snowflakes fall as it covers the ground.
