Description

Have you tasted the delicious German specialties Bratwurst (German sausage), Stollen (traditional holiday cake), and Glühwein (hot spiced wine)? Go to the Daley Plaza and taste them all at the Christkindlmarket of Chicago. For over a whole month this place is like a piece of Germany with all its culinary treats, Christmas decorations and music. In this great cultural and shopping event, the only one of its kind in America, a large number of vendors offer traditional German food and drinks and you can also buy lovely hand-crafted wooden or glass ornaments for your tree and your house. Each year the market opens with the tree-lighting ceremony in the presence of the Christkind. In certain traditions this golden fairy-like being is the bearer of the Christmas gifts. Don’t forget to tell her your wishes!
