SEE & DO: The Atlanta Christkindl Market
A German winter wonderland.
Frohe Weihnachten! The German American Cultural Foundation is transforming Atlantic Station into a traditional Christkindl market, an outdoor, winter celebration that will bring the enchantment of an authentic German Christmas to Atlanta. The European street market began as a celebration of the four weeks of Advent and dates back to the late Middle Ages. Over time, the market has evolved into a family-friendly event featuring gifts such as nutcrackers, holiday ornaments, wooden toys, handwoven clothing, snow globes, and more, all from German vendors. Beer will be served along with schnitzel, pretzels, brats, pastries, gingerbread, and other classic German eats. Kids will even have the opportunity to meet and take pictures with Christkindl, a holiday spirit usually depicted as an angelic child who leaves presents under the tree on Christmas Eve.
