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

Was with a group of 12 people of 8 adults and 4 kids. This could be called a white tent Xmas vendor mini-community. Met a lot of fine vendors and ate some German food at the food court. The visitor center hosted the Christkindlmarkt and...More
