-Featuring-

Christian Werner

Since 1985, Christian Werner has produced small wooden animals by hand according to the time-honored technique of wood turning. Craftsmen of the Erzgebirge began using lathes to produce wooden toys in the 1700's, and wood turning has remained one of the region's most celebrated types of wood working. Christian Werner has established himself as one of the premier toy manufacturers of Seiffen, Germany, developing new innovations while remaining true to the traditional wood turning practices of generations past. Christian will be doing live demonstrations at the Carmel Christkindlmarkt on November 18 & 19.

The Ice at Center Green

Come and enjoy Carmel's first ever outdoor skating rink located within the Christkindlmarkt itself! Bring your own skates or rent some at our central location for fun the whole family will enjoy.

Holiday at Center Green

Join us as we kick off the holidays in grand fashion with Holiday at Center Green on November 18th featuring music for the season, tree lighting, Santa with his live reindeer- all coinciding with the grand opening of our Christkindlmarkt and The Ice at Center Green!

Custom Carmel Collectibles

In addition to all of the unique gifts you'll find in our Christkindlmarkt booths, beautiful Carmel Christkindlmarkt collectibles will be available to help commemorate your time with us.

Midwest Alphorn Retreat

The retreat began in 2009 as a dream of John Griffith. John wanted to gather his alphorn blowing friends together for several days of fellowship and total immersion in the alphorn. The retreat also features instruction from Dr. Peggy DeMers, Professor of Horn at Sam Houston State University. She studied in Switzerland while she completed her doctoral thesis on the alphorn. Peggy is a world class horn player, alphorn blower, and superb teacher.

Past & Present

-Christkindlmarkt memories-

"Growing up in Germany the Christkindlmarkt belonged to Christmas like the Christmas tree and presents. As a child we loved the smells and taste of roasted almonds, fresh gingerbread and chocolate covered treats. As an adult a weekly get together with old friends at the Glühwein booth is still my favorite tradition."

"Anna B.”

"I have fond memories of attending the Christkindlmarket Chicago held in the Loop neighborhood of the city. The authentic offerings evoke special memories of my family’s traditions. I look forward to continuing these traditions with my children in a more intimate setting that the Carmel Christkindlmarkrt will offer market-goers here in our own remarkable city."

"Janelle”

"Christkindlmarkt brings me back “home.” The holiday season doesn’t start until you visit Christkindlmarkt. It’s our family tradition to visit the market each year in Austria, Slovenia or Germany.  Last year we visited Schonbrunn Vienna but with Christkindlmarkt coming to Carmel, a piece of “magic” is coming near my home and I couldn’t be more excited."

"Petra P.”

"Walking among the vendors at a German market not only evokes favorite holiday toy memories, but transports my senses to another culture.  The global spirit of Christmas fills my soul."

"Teneen D.”

"We are so excited to join the Christkindlmarkt for its first year. We visited a similar market when we lived in Austria daily in the winter. Its about bundling up, chatting while holding a warm drink, its about friends and family. A perfect place for a warm chocolate and delicious truffles….
Herzlichen Wilkommen!"

"Joann and Roland * Xchocol’Art"
