Kinderecke - Kids Corner

- Let's create something! -

The Kinderecke is located in Hut #62.
The Kinderecke is a safe place for families to color, craft and play together.
It is located inside hut #46 between the Carmel Pyramid and The Tarkington Theatre.

The Kinderecke (“Kids Corner”) is a special space for families to make crafts and memories together during all Market hours. In German households, it’s not uncommon to have a dedicated corner in the kitchen or family room for kids to create and do crafts. Join us in this special kid-friendly hut to make all sorts of fun holiday-themed or German-inspired creations! Our staff and volunteers are excited to help you with your masterpieces.
