Munich and Bavaria in general are very conservative and religious places so I have been told several times that during the Christmas period people stay at home with their family

That may be true for much of the Bavarian countryside (being conservative and religious) but not for Munich.

It looks to me as if the photos were not exactly shot at peak shopping times or even at a time when shops were closed. Usually the pedestrian zone is packed with people the days before christmas up to 23rd of December.
24th December is indeed a day you usually spend with your family (religious or not). On that day most shops close in the early afternoon.

munich not more than new york, paris or london

and for bavaria as a whole, replace religious with tradition-conscious.
