This place has so much to enjoy for everyone. Men and women and children. Puts you in the spirit of the holidays. Food is delish !!! Do not eat in advance because you must try everything!!!

We recently visited the christkindlmarkt. I recommend getting there about 30 minutes prior to them opening that way you can find close free parking. I also recommend per-purchasing your tickets, that line is much shorter than the general admission line. The market is very nicely decorated and is filled with very unique crafts, ornaments and decorations. You can even see... More

We saw a writeup about this event in the Harrisburg paper. Nice variety of gifts. Many Christmas items, especially one display of items from Germany, and many gifts that would make great Christmas gifts. Admission profits went to a nonprofit. Glassblowing was interesting to watch. Music entertainment was lacking, and there were not enough tables in the eating area.

Get ready to be submerged in everything Christmas. From ornaments to pottery to jewelry, clothing, and food Christkindlmarkt is a feast for you. Sample cheese, salsa, toffee(which is delicious), honey, wine and plenty of other items. Eat in the food tent as you linger while a band plays carols. See live ice carvings, warm yourself with hot cocoa or hot... More

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.
