There will be more than 80 artisan huts and vendors offering handcrafted gifts, food products, and more for purchase. Discover unique treasures and gourmet items that are hard to come by elsewhere. In addition, there are always uniquely beautiful handcrafted ornaments.

Arguably you cannot visit without partaking in the festive feasts and drinks. Warm up with Glühwein (mulled wine) or get a selection of German and Austrian beers, ciders or spiced hot chocolate.

To eat there are a number of savoury and sweet delicacies to relish. Some popular items include Mr. Hotcakes rolled up pancakes, THOSE pretzels, artisanal deli meats, turkey haus, roasted pork haus, perogies, schnitzel, and so much more. You can check out all the vendors participating at this year’s event here.
