The advertisement makes it seem like there is a lot more to it. There are two large tents and some small shops in a building outside the tents. Not nearly enough for me to drive the 1 1/2 hours to get here with my wife and kids. We did get to have breakfast with Santa though. Santa greets you at... More

This is a hard review for me for a few reasons, first i love Christmas and Christmas events! And second, I am from Bethlehem! However, on Sunday my friend and I ventured down to Christkindlmarkt. We got there 10 minutes early and had to wait in a long line. Then we had to pay $9.00 just to get in to... More

I am not sure what I expeced but maybe I though there would be more. The ads make it seem like there are blocks and blocks of Christmas fun. The tents are set up so that you truly forget you are in a tent. The vendors had some really nice items. From ornaments to great hand crafted items. The food... More

You have to pay $9 to shop. It's just a bunch of mostly Christmas craft stalls in a big tent. There is a second tent with more stalls and food. We thought it would be a lot nicer. Total waste of money and time.

Admission fee way too high/prohibitive for treating a family of 5! Would have liked that $$ for actual shopping!!

I'm a season pass holder so I try to go every chance I can to share the experience with friends and family. Some of the vendors change every weekend so there is new "window" shopping on every visit. If you get tired of shopping you can listen to music, watch ice carving, watch glass blowing, or just people watch to... More

It is a fun outing for once a year. My daughter and I go for a nice mother-daughter time. We found many one of a kind items there...and some purchased. Plan on going back in two weeks for another shopping adventure.

Not what I expected, I think I was thinking more of a Christmas city, but I think it was better overall. Some of the vendors had some really interesting things to sell. We went there with the intention of just seeing what it was all about but ended up buying several unique Christmas presents. The food was good but the... More

Great shopping, we really enjoyed the glass blowing experience. This was one at a time with emphasis on safety- one instructor and one helper to ensure safety! The food looked and smelled great bit we only ate fresh apple strudel and German almonds both of them were excellent. Bought lots of things there for fair prices. Parking was close and... More
