German Christmas Markets USA & Canada- Enjoy the Holiday Magic!


-Can’t make it to Germany this year? It turns out there are a few Christkindlmarkts or German Christmas Markets in America and Canada. These markets are a wonderful way to get into the Christmas spirit without the cost of plane fare, you just need a car, or heck, with the money you save, you can take a Limo! Find those treasures from Germany… the Smokers and Pyramids… glass ornaments… even those delicious foods like Gebrannte Mandeln and Wurstchen (Sugar Almonds and Sausages).

This list was compiled by my readers… If you have any to add, please put them in the comments below, and I will add them to the page. I want to keep this to German-Style Christmas Markets please. 

Also- Please double check the websites BEFORE you make a long drive! (Last Updated Dec 7 2022)
