Christkindlmarket is Back!

Christkindlmarket is back! After last year’s hiatus, Chicagoans and visitors alike can once again partake in holiday traditions inspired by 16th century German holiday markets. Christkindlmarket is one of the first and best known outdoor markets full of holiday cheer, food gifts, and more.

The authentic Christkindlmarket in Downtown Chicago and at Gallagher Way in Wrigleyville are a unique and admission-free experience. The smell of roasted nuts, fresh pretzels, bratwurst and hot spiced wine, the sound of festive music, and the glimmer of sparkling Christmas ornaments, all in a cozy atmosphere – a visit to the market takes all  your senses on a journey!
