After spending two past pre-Christmases in London, we are totally in the mood to embrace all the Christmas kitsch Munich has to offer! It is definitely not the same without all those advents, authentic Christmas markets and the best lebkuchen in the world! Anna is even so desperate, that she is probably going to bake plätzchen for the first time in her life...

Here are some exciting things for the weekend, to fill your gaps between drinking glühwein and swallowing sweets:

Saturday, 7 December:
AUGMENTED REALITY: Augmented Reality Show with Markus Layman, a mix of new technologies and magic tricks. We're particularly intrigued by the promise to combine this show with a critical discourse on technology and society. Shows are on Saturday and Sunday, tickets 18€/15€, starts at 8pm.

ARTS & ACADEMIC RESEARCH: If you are into artistic research and combination of practice and academic theory, you might want to pop in the LaborARTtorium, a weekend of lectures, performances and installations organised by LMU's PhD program ProArt. Starts at 9.30am on Friday and Saturday. See the full program here.

Sunday, 8 December:
BRUNCH & MAKE: An open studio space / cafe / shop HUIJ offers a special second advent brunch. Go for the classical version with apples, or try something new: a vegan strudel with red cabbage and pear or a veggie strudel. 11.30am - 15.30pm.

VINYL FLEA-MARKET: All you second-hand vinyl lovers like us! There will be a flee-market at the bar Favorit, Damenstiftstr 12. The entry is free, and if you want to sell some of your old treasures, it is also free. Starts at 7.30pm. 

XMAS & HOT DRINKS: Have a cup of the comforting hot liquid from the biggest Feuerzangenbowle (hot punch with rum, red wine and sugar) in the world (9.000 l.!!), which will be installed at Isartor. To keep your eyes busy, the organisers will be showing the German Christmas classics "Die Feuerzangenbowle" from 1944. Starts at 11am every day, from 6 Dec until 6 Jan, just turn up.
