Market of Ideas

Handcrafts from all over the world and international dishes

It’s the special flair of the “Market of Ideas” that brings the people of Munich to the Theresienwiese during Advent. The illuminated tents, the odours from all over the world, the happy hustel and bustle of performance artists, the sound of the Tief-im-Wald-Bar, the numerous market stalls in the tents with unique craftworks and last but not least the manifold offers of international organic food and beverages, creating this exceptional and peaceful atmosphere right before Christmas.

Market of Ideas

Various international exhibitors offer unique craftworks as well as country-specific goods and food. Tollwood makes sure that all products from so called developing countries i.e. coffee, tea, chocolate, have the “Fair Trade” label and therefore contributes to more equality.
