Market

Deutsches Haus is holding its 4th annual ChristKindlMarkt or Christmas Market in December 2022. A Christkindlmarkt is a street market associated with Christmas during the Advent season. These markets originated in Germany in the late Middle Ages. Our market will offer food, drink, seasonal items and handmade gifts and crafts offered for sale from open air stalls, and be accompanied by traditional Christmas music and singing.
