agoda.com, a leading global hotel booking site and part of Nasdaq-listed Priceline Group (Nasdaq: PCLN), today released rates for hotels in Munich for the duration of the famous Christmas Markets.

Held every year from Advent until Christmas Eve (November 24 – December 24), the Christmas markets are a calendar highlight in several European cities. Filling Munich's historic town square, Marienplatz, with fairy lights, festive decorations and rows of open-air stalls, the Christmas markets create a picturesque winterscape outside the town hall.

The Christmas Markets originated in Europe in the Middle Ages, the first recorded markets dating back to the 14th century. Called Christkindlesmarkt in Germany, this rich medieval tradition began in Munich around 1642 when nativity scenes filled the town square and the most popular treat was gingerbread.

Today, Christkindlesmarkt features more than 150 decorated stalls set up around a towering illuminated Christmas tree. Each booth is run by a different artisan selling traditional handicrafts such as handmade children's toys, wood carvings, glass crystals, beeswax candles and pewter Christmas tree decorations. Hearty Bavarian food, sweet cider and warm spiced wine are also widely available, keeping shoppers warm against the chilly winter nights.

Not far from Christkindlesmarkt is the Tollwood festival, where travelers can experience a completely different side of Munich. The Tollwood Winter Festival is an eco-friendly event that features international music, theatrical performances, a 'Market of Ideas' selling organic foods, social and scientific symposiums, children's programs, and a New Year's Eve party with live bands, DJs and a traditional midnight waltz.

The Tollwood Festival runs from November 23 to December 31, 2011. To get the best rate on Munich hotels, travelers intending to visit in the lead-up to Christmas and the New Year should book their rooms as soon as possible.

Agoda.com has selected the following hotels in Munich – rates are valid until December 31, 2011.
