Centuries-old tradition of manger art

Weihnachtskrippen Elemente

The range of crib figures, accessories and woodcarvings at Richard-Strauss-Brunnen at Neuhauserstr. is so comprehensive that the manger market is regarded as a true treasure trove for crib enthusiasts. As well as true collector items and rarities, there are many cribs and accessories here, in all sizes and variations, for normal Christmas use. Special highlights of the manger market are the Oberammergau large crib and the precious oriental and alpine ornate cribs. The manger market with its artistically carved figures has been a tradition of the Munich Christmas Market since the 18th century. In 1597 a crib was placed in the Jesuit St Michael's church for the first time. Since 2011 the manger market has been located directly in front of the church on Richard-Strauss-Brunnen in Neuhauserstr. In its former location at the Rindermarkt you can now find the nostalgic Sternenplatzl.

Cribs in Munich

Christmas cribs (German) belong to Advent in Munich like gingerbread and mulled wine. Experience the variety of cribs in Munich's city-centre churches by taking a stroll along the Nativity Trail (Krippenweg, German). Those who want to see even more cribs are recommended to take a look at the crib collection in the Bavarian National Museum (German) which has valuable handcrafted examples from the Tyrol and Italy.
