Over 1 million visitors flock to Chicago’s Christkindlmarket every year to shop for unique treasures and enjoy the festive, Old World atmosphere. This traditional German American holiday market is located at Daley Plaza and is the largest such market in the United States. It will be open this year from Friday, November 18 through Christmas Eve – so you have plenty of time to do your holiday shopping at the bazaar. Centered around a gorgeous Christmas tree, the market sells special toys, handmade goods, artisan wares, Christmas decorations, baked goods, and international merchandise from vendors from Austria, Germany, and the Ukraine. Visit the beer and wine gardens to grab a cup of hot mulled wine, and enjoy live entertainment from holiday choirs, brass bands, and dancing troupes. If you’ll be in Chicago this holiday season, Christkindlmarket is not to be missed.
Best of all, the market is located just 0.6 miles from our award-winning hotel, at Daley Plaza – located at 50 West Washington Street.
