1. Hotel Am Markt 3* – Hotels Near Munich Christmas Market
The Hotel Am Markt is situated in the pedestrian area of the Viktualienmarkt market place in Munich and is just a 1-minute walk away from Marienplatz.
The public transport services (underground and urban railways) take you directly to the airport, the main railway station and the new exhibition centre in Riem.
Situated in a house built in 1897, this relaxed hotel is a 4-minute walk from Marienplatz U-Bahn station, a 12-minute walk from artwork at Munich Residenz and a 13-minute walk from Deutsches Museum.
The casual rooms come with wood furnishings, free Wi-Fi, and flat-screen TVs with satellite channels. They also feature desks and seating areas. An apartment has a kitchen, a dining room and a living room, plus a balcony and a whirlpool tub. Room service is available, and there’s no air-conditioning.
Amenities include an upscale bistro, a lounge and a cozy pub. Pets are welcome.
We had a superior room and it was spacious and extremely comfy. The bathroom is not in a separate room, it’s just separated by a glass wall and sliding door which is a bit intrusive. The bed was comfy and the shower was good. We didn’t have the breakfast so can’t comment on that.
The best thing by far about this hotel is the location; it’s a 2 minute walk from Marienplatz and a 2 minute walk from the Christmas markets so it is worth the money to stay there, just have your wits about you.
On the plus side the room was comfortable and clean, the location for the Christmas markets was terrific and there are plenty of cafes and bars in the area.
We travelled on foot so accessing the hotel was easy but I am uncertain as to how accessible this hotel would be by car.
The room was on the smaller side and a bit dated, but at the end of the day it was ok, especially since we were just sleeping there after exploring each day. The hotel had a small elevator so you don’t have to cart your luggage up the stairs. It also had a 24hr reception.
The great part about the hotel is that the location is absolutely amazing. It is right on the “Viktualienmarkt” or victuals market, and just around the corner from Marienplatz.
There is a cab rank about 100m from the hotel if you are carrying luggage back to airport or train station. Also about 400m away is a laundromat called Wash & Coffee, handy for those longer stays.
Overall the hotel is very well priced and in a great location. I would happily stay here again.

The location of this hotel was ideal for our visit to the Munich Christmas Markets.
It was a very short work to Marienplatz and not very far from the train station (also an easy walk). The staff was great and the functional room was perfect for us. Breakfast was diverse and in a very nice location.
They also provide a refrigerator with free beverages that are replenished each day. Loved it.
The location can’t be beat since it’s in Old Town and you can be in the Marienplatz and other locations in minutes. For farther distances, U and S systems are in the Marienplatz and easily taken.
A small refrigerator was in the room and they left some complimentary water and coke each day, which was a lifesaver. The office staff was wonderfully friendly and very helpful about getting me where I wanted to go.
December was a great time to visit Munich and be able to go to the Christmas markets. Breakfast was included and the breakfast buffet was quite large and had something for everyone.
This is the perfect location that is a stone’s throw from the Christmas markets. The room was nicely done and the bed simple perfection. The staff was on top of their game in every way. And great breakfasts.
Perfect location just minutes to the Marienplatz by foot- we walked through the Christmas Market daily on our way to many of the nearby sights- Viktualienmarkt, Munich Residenz, Frauenkirche, English Garden, Hofbrauhaus, Michaelskirche….rental car unnecessary, we took the S8 from the airport directly to the Marienplatz station.
Also within walking distance is the Munich Main Train Station that we used to visit Garmisch and the Zugspitze.
All staff were so helpful and friendly and the daily breakfast at the hotel is wonderful!!!
Perfect for travelers like us who want a nice, clean place to sleep while we spend waking hours outside of the hotel exploring the city.

The location (right on Marienplatz where the largest Munich weihnachtsmarkt is situated, and directly opposite the Neues Rathaus in all its gothic splendour) couldn’t be bettered for our purpose. A short (2 min) walk from other attractions including the famous Hofbrauhaus and Haxnbauer restaurants, Dallmayr delicatessen & restaurant, Viktualienmarkt foods market and various historical churches, puts Beyond right at the epicentre of Munich Christmas tourist attractions.
The room (decorated in comfortable but minimalist style) facilities were fine with everything working perfectly. And despite the location directly above the Christmas market with its thousands of visitors, music, etc., the windows were superbly soundproofed and the room was silent inside.
Beyond may not be the cheapest lodging in the area, but taking into account the location and the fact that all food and drink (including some pleasant wines) are included in the tariff, we found it to be good value.
Perfect location right next to Marienplatz Christmas market and easy walk to Residenz market. Staff extremely helpful.
Breakfast and snacks (included in price) were superb. Easy access to Hauptbahnhof with underground (2 stops to hbf) right outside door of hotel. Room spacious, modern and clean.
