For the ybig resident in Germany - how likely are the Christmas Markets to go ahead this year ? Is there a sense of a return to normality in Germany yet ?

I've not seen anything yet about the markets here in Munich. Other large cities such as Hamburg / Berlin may have different plans.

The Oktoberfest in normal times would have started tomorrow.

You need to be vaccinated, recovered or have a negative test to enter restaurants / bars etc. Even need it now to go into the library. Still sticking to the outdoors. Public transport is getting busier and people more likely to sit beside you now. Masks are compulsory though changed from FFP2 to Medical.I think clubs are still closed.

Cheers for that - went to the Christmas Market in Dusseldorf in 2019 with the wife, thinking of bringing the kids this time (not necessarily Dusseldorf). From the little bit of research I've done it seems the cities are planning and promoting the markets but with caveats that they may be cancelled at short notice. I'm still reluctant to book flights until things are a little clearer.

Last year I think they were cancelled less than a month beforehand.
One thing they would have to do is regulate access like they have done at the biergartens. Pain having to queue
