Lots of both. Be more specific on what you are interested in eating (German, Turkish, Indian, Chinese, etc.) and what you want to see.

I am not sure what this means.

Are you looking for something that is decorated all Christmas-like for the tourists? Or are you looking for a cozy Bavarian-style restaurant with a menu featuring duck, goose, deer, and other wild game and the place is decorated with dark wooden ceiling, German proverbs about food written on the wall, and various farm implements and wild game horns mounted on the wall?

I'll ask some colleagues but Wirtshaus zur Marienburg is a dark, cozy place with great traditional fare.

Wirtshaus zur Marienburg
Hohensalzaer Str. 1
81929 Munich

"True German Christmas spirit" would be going to visit family on Dec 25.

Many restaurants will be open and virtually all of the Bavarian restaurants will have wild game on their menu. Tis the season for goose.

Whichever restaurant you chose, book a table in advance. Most restaurants have fixed menus on Christmas Day and require reservation.

Sorry to burst your bubble about the "white" Christmas. Munich cannot guarantee you a white Christmas. Probability of snow on Christmas is hardly more than 10%, and that is optimistic. The same applies to most of Germany. You have to go up into the mountains for a fair chance, but still no perfect guarantee, of snow.

"decorated for tourists??????? What does THAT mean, exactly? I'll be in Munich this coming Saturday and I expect decorations for the locals at least.

Settle down, Francis. All I am saying is that in the past five Christmases, I have yet to go to a Bavarian/Franconian restaurant that was overly decorated for Christmas. That one Chinese restaurant I went o on the other hand...
