Visit a festive Christmas village overflowing with holiday and community spirit.
Mifflinburg’s version of an authentic Christmas Market, inspired by the 700-year old traditional German Christkindl Markt, or Christ Child Market, is a festive event prepared by the town’s
churches, organizations, schools and residents.
For three days, Mifflinburg’s Market Street, between 4th and 6th Streets, which is surrounded
by churches, is lined with festive outdoor huts featuring unique handmade crafts
and traditional Christkindl treats. "Christkindl Market of Mifflinburg, Inc." is responsible for this!
The air is filled with the enticing aroma of freshly baked Apfel Streudel, hot chocolate, Hungarian goulash, German sausages, gourmet coffees, and hot spiced wine.
Sample the sweet kettle corn, roasted almonds, simmering soups, delicious Christmas cookies, desserts, and the traditional German Lebküchen (gingerbread) hearts.
Catch the spirit of the season as glorious holiday music is performed on the outdoor stage and in the churches. It is truly a time for the entire family.
The leitmotiv, or recurring theme, in each year's Market is a tradition that is unique to the Mifflinburg Christkindl Market. Each year's leitmotiv features a story or culturally significant icon from a featured city in Germany or Austria. This year's featured city is Cologne, Germany!
