Event Description:
Discover the magic of an olde world Christmas market as New Ulm's Christkindlmarkt casts its spell under more visitors this year. The festive German marketplace and family faire will ring in the season featuring handcrafted works and performances by local artisans.

Imagine shopping an indoor Marktplatz set up as a European village square complete with Christmas stalls. From the Edelweiss Schauplatz, charming carolers, strolling violins, Heinzelmännchen Gnomes and lucky Chimney Sweeps will entertain guests as they shop for unique and difficult to resist gifts.

Warm yourself with a cup of mulled wine while you take in the wonderful view of the market and savor handmade pretzels, roasted nuts and grilled German sausages from the Weihnachts Café.

Travel through the enchanting Black Forest to visit St. Nick’s reindeer, the Living Nativity and Bethlehem Stables. Kinderwelt will captivate youngsters with storytellers, art activities, a children's theatre performance and a hot cocoa bar.

Experience this time-honoured tradition without having to travel any farther than the city of New Ulm, the most German city in America. Take a short ride to visit our downtown, historically decorated with swags of fresh garland, and enjoy the annual Parade of Lights.
