The Carmel Christkindlmarkt is bringing the old world charm of Christmas in Germany to beautiful Carmel, Indiana. The Christmas market tradition stretches back to Saxony, Germany during the middles ages. Over the centuries, the joys of the traditional Christmas markets spread from town to town, and around the world!
Christkindlmarkt is the German name for the traditional Christmas market, literally translated as "Christ child market." These markets feature a delightful blend of holiday food, drinks, gifts, and decorations. Various regions of Germany became well-known for their hand-crafted Christmas decorations, wood-working, artwork, or textiles. Today, millions of people enjoy Germany's Christmas markets each year.
The Carmel Christkindlmarkt will feature a variety of food and drinks enjoyed at German Christmas markets the world over. These are a few of the most traditional Christkindlmarkt items that you'll find at the Carmel Christkindlmarkt.
Germany boasts a rich tradition of handmade Christmas goods. From hand carved woodwork to hand painted decorations, the highly cherished artistry and guarded craftsmanship of these unique items have been honed for centuries, passing from one generation to the next.
