Christkindlmarket Booths

The Christkindlmarket 

Chicagoland's favorite holiday tradition since 1996


The smell of roasted nuts, fresh pretzels, bratwurst, and hot spiced wine, the sound of music, and the glimmer of sparkling Christmas ornaments, all in a cozy atmosphere - this is the authentic German-style Christkindlmarket experience. 

Visitors can explore vendors' products from all around the world and enjoy the unique shopping experience while enjoying international food, beverages and performances at the outdoor market that is always free of admission. Children have the opportunity to participate in Kinder Club activities.

Ready to make some wonderful memories, collect a specialty souvenir mug, and get into the holiday spirit?
