The German Christmas market is back for another great season of gifts, treats, Brotwurst and so much more!

This yearly Vancouver event is about as authentic of a Christmas Market as you are going to find outside of Germany. With rows of little wooden huts decorated in pine branches, strung with little white lights, it provide a festive and romantic setting for getting into the Christmas spirit.

There is a kids market where children can make their own Christmas gifts. And business people will find it a fun meeting place for a quick bite or a drink after work.

There will be a variety of performances on the market centre piece stage including traditional European choirs and dance performances. There will also be daily workshops such as chocolate making presentations, drumming workshops and bee keeping demonstrations!

The marget is going to be an enchanting experience with a mix of food and merchandise booths including some German specialties such as Bratwurst, suckling pig, and lets not forget the amazing hot spiced red wine (Gluehwein)!
