Happening Now at Daley Plaza: Christkindlmarket Chicago!

From now through December 24th, get in the holiday spirit at Christkindlmarket Chicago at Daley Plaza. This incredibly unique experience brings a traditional German market to life right here in our city from the beautifully architected vendor stalls to the beer-hall inspired oasis of cuisine, the Stammtisch, it’s the next best thing to a trip to Germany. 

The Christkind is a German figure similar to our Santa Claus who provides gifts to all the children during the holiday season. She is a goddess of sorts with long blonde hair topped with an extravagant gold crown. In previous years the Christkind from Germany has actually visited our Chicago market and this year we will have our very own gracing the market for the opening, as well as programming throughout the season. 

At the market you can check off some of your holiday shopping needs with traditional beer steins, handmade ornaments and decor, and so many other traditional finds. Don’t skip the Stammtisch experience. Make a reservation for you and your family for a two-hour timeframe. While there you’ll be able to order traditional dishes like bratwurst and strudel while sipping on German beer or glühwein, a hot mulled wine. It’s truly an unparalleled experience! Prost!
