This was our first visit. It's always nice to check something different but I think most Christmas Markets where ever you go are pretty much the same. We drove about 3 hours to get here. Really wasn't worth the trip although we did buy something....More

Three heated tents and a nice collection of out-door vendors give you the opportunity to find many handcrafted items. kathi Wolfardt(sp?) has a huge shop here too. Worth the trip unless you can actually do the European Christmas Markets!

I enjoyed my time in the market. There are a variety of crafts, although many were expensive. There was great German food in the eating area, and entertainment.

I visited Christkindlmarkt from south FL, and thoroughly enjoyed it! There were about 100 vendors of all crafts. We really enjoyed watching the glass blowing and really wished we had signed up to make our own Christmas ornament. There was an incredible German vendor with...More
