NEW BRAUNFELS, Texas – Christkindlmarkt is a German-inspired, open-air Christmas market that is returning to New Braunfels in December.

Visitors can sip Gluhwein, a hot spiced wine traditionally served in Germany around Christmas time, while perusing the booths of more than 80 vendors.

“We have taken the same principles of the German Christmas Markets and created our own Christkindlmarkt in one of Texas’s most Germanesque cities,” said a spokesperson for the market.
