First time to this elaborate display of crafts for purchase. Many vendors worked their craft (wood carving, silk scarf personalization, glass blowing) on site which was interesting to observe. Suggest arriving early in the morning because as the day went on it got more and more crowded. Watched the movie of the history of Bethlehem in the on-site movie theater... More

My family and I went to the Christkindl market in December. We started out in the town of Bethlehem because I thought that's where it was but it's actually on the other side of town. Bethlehem is a beautiful town and we've been there before so it's definitely worth checking out. The fair however was a few miles away and... More

A great place that's a lot of fun. It's very crowded, but the vendors were all great and it has a nice atmosphere.

After many years of wondering whether the entrance fee was worthwhile, I found out the answer this year-- no. First, parking is far away. The close lot is usually immediately filled and many spaces are reserved for Artsquest members. Second, the amount of vendors that are of low quality or have nothing to do with gift-giving ( replacement windows and... More

Many booths with crafts all which are relatively overpriced. To start it is $9.00 per person just to enter. There are great crafts if that is your thing. Food choices were very few and not very good from what we tried.

This was the second time we visited the market. I enjoy looking at the German nutcrackers, cookoo clocks and other glass and wooden ornaments hover the prices are outlandish. At $10-30 bucks per ornament, we're talking a small fortune to trim a tree. I thought most things were double the price that I've seen them in my travels to Germany.... More

We started out on the historic Main St. in Bethlehem, which was the best part of the day, especially the Hotel Bethlehem and the Moravian Book Store. We then drove to"SteelStacks" to see Christkindlmarkt. Had a lot of problems finding it and finding parking. There are no signs. We never saw the advertised trolley that was supposed to shuttle you... More

A must for locals and visitors alike. Prices are a little steep, but it's worth the experience. Lots of unique finds and tons of things to see. There is a food court indoors with live music to enjoy while you stroll. This place gets packed so go early if you can.
