My wife and I go to Christkindlmarkt every year just to look around. Great little craft merchants, from jewel, clothes, food, Christmas related items. The vendors don't really change all that much from year to year and it can get pretty crowded. The best part is that they sell drinks so you can sip on adult beverages while you shop.... More

Had fun walking around the "market"- Christkindlmarkt. So many vendors with lovely and different items. The food court was fun- but it took a long time to get the food. We went on a Friday... and it was busy, but not REALLY BUSY. That was true around town as well. But Saturday was so crowded- I have a feeling that... More

What a joke,its an over priced craft show that you pay to get in, the tents were nice and it felt like you got something for the money but not any longer, go to main street its out standing. What a disappointment....

This was our 1st and will be our only visit to this event. Way too much to walk around highly priced crafts.We went to the Leesburg farmers market the next day for free that had 4 X's the venders and much lower prices.

We went here because the USA world news and report gave this high marks for a German Christmas market. We had to pay 8 to get in to shop. I don't understand why we have to pay to get into an event to purchase things. They did have a nice selection of vendors and unique items, but out of my... More

A nice way to spend the day, with a mix of things. Besides the vendors, had ice carving, glassblowing, entertainment, welcome center, volunteers and even more volunteers who all were very friendly, and food and drink. The food concessions seemed somewhat overwhelmed, like why 15 minutes for an order of fries. Some of the diversions made the visit a pleasure... More

This market has many craft vendors with high quality products to purchase for holiday decorating, gifting, dining and more. Furthermore, they have a section with food vendors and a stage with musicians playing regularly throughout the day. Finally, they have a Santa Claus for the children to have their photos taken. You can easily spend several hours at this festive... More

Lots of variety in vendors. Excellent quality items. Even the food choices at the food court were very good. Accomplished some Christmas shopping and had a lovely day out with a friend.

When we first moved to Bethlehem 7 years ago, Christkindlmarkt was high on our list of 'to-do' activities as we learned the customs, features and opportunities of our new environment. Originally, the Markt was located in two huge tents just off lower main street (where several annual festivals are also held). The ambiance was good. We purchased 'season' tickets for... More
