Inspired by the 16th century Christkindlmarkt in Germany, Chicago’s own Christkindlmarket is now celebrating its 25th anniversary. The market blends local flavor and European holiday traditions in a charming open-air Christmas festival and provides unique shopping opportunities (including the first Christkindlmarket souvenir ornament), diverse entertainment options as well as authentic German food and drink, including Glühwein, a warm spiced wine that’s served in a souvenir mug. Hate waiting in line? Reserve a Stammtisch table in the heated Timber Haus! Make sure to also visit Christkindlmarket’s Wrigleyville location at Gallagher Way next door to Wrigley Field!
