Pay Homage to a Great German Tradition During the Annual Christkindlmarkt

Let yourself be enchanted by the special outdoor atmosphere of the Atlanta Christkindl Market in the heart of Atlanta from November 21st to December 24th.

Christkindlmarkt is a seasonal street market that celebrates Christmas during the four weeks of Advent. The history of Christmas markets goes as far back as the Late Middle Ages in the German-speaking part of Europe and in many parts of the former Holy Roman Empire. In many towns in Germany and Austria, Advent is usually ushered in with the opening of the Christmas market—and Atlanta is following that age-old tradition with this premier event.

This year, our market will feature a Christkind; she will be part of the Grand Opening Ceremony, reciting her prologue translated from the original German to welcome visitors to the Atlanta Christkindl Market. During her visit, the young and young at heart will have the opportunity to meet and greet and take pictures with her as she roams the market, sharing German holiday traditions and telling Christmas stories.

The Atlanta Christkindl Market is free admission, so we hope that you officially begin your holiday season in Centennial Olympic Park with us!
