Christkindlmarkts are holiday markets traditionally found in Europe, dating back to the Middle Ages in Saxony, Germany. The markets are a winter tradition with holiday food, drink, gifts and decorations. Here you’ll find hand-crafted wooden toys, artwork and more.

Beneath twinkling lights, browse more than 50 wooden huts selling authentic products imported from Germany, like wooden toys, nutcrackers, music boxes, ornaments and more. Don’t miss the collectible items like the boot mug and Bierkrüge for adult beverages.

While you’re shopping, sip a hot mug of Glühwein (mulled wine) or hot cocoa. Come hungry to enjoy a German pretzel, Bratwurst, Lebkuchen (German cookie), Raclette (melted cheese served on bread) and Stollen (dried fruit bread).

This traditional Glühwein Pyramid is the only one like it in the United States, standing more than 33 feet tall with more than 3,000 lights and weighing 10 tons. Enjoy more than 10 varieties of warm beverages, ranging from mulled wine to beer and childrens’ punch. Purchase a collector’s mugs to take home with you.

Inside the perimeter of the Carmel Christkindlmarkt is an outdoor ice skating rink, the Ice at Center Green. Bring your own skates or rent on-site and glide through a winter wonderland. The ice rink will be open past the holiday season to enjoy all winter long. Reservations can be made online. Skate sessions last 75 to 90 minutes.
