READ TIME 3 MIN – Our new mug design has been released! On Tuesday, November 1st, our 2022 Official Media Sponsor Chicago Star, presented the design of this year’s annual Christkindlmarket mug.

Our so-called “Dancing Mug” is inspired by the City of Chicago that has been celebrating the “Year of Dance” in 2022. When holding the mug, you’ll notice that it bends a little bit to one side, just as if it was dancing to the cheerful sounds of holiday music. This shape is absolutely unique and one that we have never had in previous years.
