Christkindl Market

 

Come enjoy a bit of German Christmas Market flair on the 16th Street Mall.







As early as the Middle Ages, German speaking areas of Europe have held Christkindl markets, or Christ-child markets, where rustic half-timber booths draped with fragrant evergreen boughs line the town squares. Depending on the region and family tradition, either “Der Weihnachtsmann” (Father Christmas) or the Christkind (Christ Child which is pronounced /krist-kint/) is the traditional bringer of gifts on Christmas Eve. The Christkind has the appearance of an angel or sprite-like being usually depicted with blond hair and angelic wings.







The Christkindl Market here in Denver includes vendors from Germany and other European countries, as well as local artisans, offering offer quality, handcrafted gift items including traditional handmade figurines, candles, and ornaments. Traditional German food such as bratwurst, potato pancakes, goulash and apple strudel will tempt your taste buds. Sip on warm Glühwein (spiced mulled wine) or an authentic German Bier as we stroll through the market and listen to musical performances.

    I'm sorry I can't make it, I just had an outpatient treatment and it wouldn't be good for me to be out and about. See you all at a future event.

    I love Christmas markets. I was in Germany and Prague a couple of years ago during the holidays. Really great to see their markets at that time. Fun!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
