There's nothing else like it in the city! Returning for a second year, the Atlanta Christkindl Market is bigger and better than ever. This unique collection of German-made gifts and German food offers a taste of the famous markets that have become a tradition throughout Germany and much of Europe. Everything is from Germany - even the cozy cottages that house all the food & beverage and unique gifts are imported from Germany.
Looking for a different way to enjoy a work-day lunch or a fun "German Food Hall" style dinner? There's a bratwurst combo - even a chicken schnitzel sandwich combo - all $10 and under. Breakfast? The Bratplatz booth will make a fresh-to-order waffle with yummy fruit toppings (grab some pretzel bites to enjoy later!) Of course, there's sweets a plenty - the genuine Goufrais chocolates are simply the best in confectionery.
Then there are the gifts - the "German Market" stall is a collection of whimsy from a local family who fell in love with these unique markets on their visits to Germany. They've brought back amazing items like an incense burner like you've never seen. We couldn't resist the German skier - he has an old world pipe in his mouth so when you light the incense and place it "inside", it appears this hand-made figurine is actually smoking his pipe. No German market would be complete without a nutcracker. Steinbach has a double sized booth with nutcrackers that range from Yoda to the Phantom of the Opera. All hand-made and hand-painted in Germany. Be sure to check out the Straub Artglas vendor for German made glass candle votives and the most unique ornaments for the tree.
All of this along with Santa's Cottage, Snow Shows each evening, the Steel Mill Express train and ice skating makes Atlantic Station the destination for the holidays.
