German Christkindlmarkt

-History-

The tradition of Christmas markets stretches back to Saxony, Germany during the Middle Ages. Throughout the centuries, the joys of these markets has spread from town to town and around the world – including all the way to Carmel, Indiana. 

“Chistkindlmarkt” literally translates to “Christ Child Market,” in reference to the Christkind. The Christkind is the traditional gift-giver on Christmas Eve in parts of Germany and in many German-speaking countries in Europe, dating back to the Reformation. 

Christkindlmarkts feature a delightful blend of holiday food, drinks, gifts and decorations. Various regions of Germany became well-known for their hand-crafted Christmas decorations, woodworking, artwork, or textiles. Today, millions of people enjoy Germany's Christmas markets each year.

What's a Glühwein Pyramid?

Inspired by the traditional German Christmas decoration called the "Weihnachtspyramide" or Christmas Pyramid, these life size versions of the Christmas Pyramid have a rich history and tradition at the Christmas markets in Germany.

Fun Facts about our Pyramid...

- First one of this kind brought to the United States

- 33 feet tall with over 3,000 lights

- Weighs an estimated 10 tons

- Made with maritime pine plywood

- Rotating fan blades, powered by an electric motor
