Get Thee to Christkindlmarket

The Xmas Spirit Live at Christkindlmarket


If you’re looking to get into the holiday spirit, there’s no easier place than Christkindlmarket. The annual German Christmas market, set in Daley Plaza in the heart of the Loop, features numerous vendors and stalls selling everything from pewter trinkets, beautiful ornaments, cuckoo clocks and handcrafted toys to beers, schnitzel, sausages, sauerkraut and German pretzels. The market, which harks back to the original in Nuremberg in 1545, is open daily starting at 11 a.m. until 8 p.m. (9 p.m. on Friday and Saturday) through December 24th.
