Carmel Christkindlmarkt

-featuring-

Christian Werner

Since 1985, Christian Werner has produced small wooden animals by hand according to the time-honored technique of wood turning. Craftsmen of the Erzgebirge began using lathes to produce wooden toys in the 1700's, and wood turning has remained one of the region's most celebrated types of wood working. Christian Werner has established himself as one of the premier toy manufacturers of Seiffen, Germany, developing new innovations while remaining true to the traditional wood turning practices of generations past. Christian will be doing live demonstrations at the Carmel Christkindlmarkt again this year.

The Ice at Center Green

Come and enjoy Carmel's first ever outdoor skating rink located within the Christkindlmarkt itself! Bring your own skates or rent some at our central location for fun the whole family will enjoy.

Alphorngruppe

Alphorngruppe "Alpentraum" (German for "Group of Alphorns" and "Dream of the Alps") are musicians who have come together because of their appreciation for and desire to play the ancient wind instrument.  Their repertoire includes fanfares, marches, dances, peaceful calls to the mountains and even a few humorous numbers.   Their music, along with their traditional Folk Costumes, are a unique experience with old world European Flavor. They are an Oktoberfest favorite at events all over the Midwest and have even appeared at the Downtown Disney Oktoberfest in California. Check out the schedule to see their performance times.

Traditional German Fare

There are no better ambassadors for the tradition of the Christkindlmarkt than the smell of the wurst, the spice of the glühwein, and the charm of the Erzgebirge holzkunst. In keeping with Christkindlmarkt tradition, the Carmel Christkindlmarkt brings some of the most beloved German holiday food and drinks together.

Visit the Baked Cheese Haus hut for a raclette- a Swiss-German dish dating back centuries. A large wheel of semi-hard cheese is melted and scraped onto plates with bread and charcuterie.

Past & Present

-Christkindlmarkt memories-

"Growing up in Germany the Christkindlmarkt belonged to Christmas like the Christmas tree and presents. As a child we loved the smells and taste of roasted almonds, fresh gingerbread and chocolate covered treats. As an adult a weekly get together with old friends at the Glühwein booth is still my favorite tradition."

"Anna B.”

"I have fond memories of attending the Christkindlmarket Chicago held in the Loop neighborhood of the city. The authentic offerings evoke special memories of my family’s traditions. I look forward to continuing these traditions with my children in a more intimate setting that the Carmel Christkindlmarkrt will offer market-goers here in our own remarkable city."

"Janelle”

"Christkindlmarkt brings me back “home.” The holiday season doesn’t start until you visit Christkindlmarkt. It’s our family tradition to visit the market each year in Austria, Slovenia or Germany.  Last year we visited Schonbrunn Vienna but with Christkindlmarkt coming to Carmel, a piece of “magic” is coming near my home and I couldn’t be more excited."

"Petra P.”

"Walking among the vendors at a German market not only evokes favorite holiday toy memories, but transports my senses to another culture.  The global spirit of Christmas fills my soul."

"Teneen D.”

"We are so excited to join the Christkindlmarkt for its first year. We visited a similar market when we lived in Austria daily in the winter. Its about bundling up, chatting while holding a warm drink, its about friends and family. A perfect place for a warm chocolate and delicious truffles….
Herzlichen Wilkommen!"

"Joann and Roland * Xchocol’Art"
