Market

Deutsches Haus is holding its third annual ChristKindl Markt or Christmas Market on Saturday, December 11 and 18, 2021, from 10 am to 6pm. 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.
