weihnachtsmarkt schliersee bayrischzell miesbach

The best Christmas markets south of Munich via train

The BRB (Bayerische Regiobahn) may have a somewhat notorious track record in winter. But honestly, who wants to get in the car only to sit in traffic and drink Kinderpunsch all day at the Christmas market?

After an enchanting Advent day at the snow-covered Schliersee, any delays, canceled trains or overcrowded carriages no longer bother you. Especially if you’ve had enough mulled wine (Glühwein). So grab your ticket and take the BRB to the most beautiful Christmas markets south of Munich.
