Inspired by the Christkindlesmarkt in Nuremberg, Germany, the Christkindlmarket brings a cherished German tradition to Chicago from November 16 - December 24 in Daley Plaza.

Each year, people from all over the world visit the Christkindlmarket. The free outdoor market in the Chicago Loop has become so popular and loved that any Chicagoan will tell you that they could not imagine the city without it. The Christkindlmarket is no longer just a German tradition; it has become a Chicago institution. The unique shopping experience, typical German food and drinks, as well as diverse holiday entertainment make the Christkindlmarket Chicago a preferred and popular destination.
