German Christmas Village
Ahoy me hearties! 'Tis I, Barnacle, the Admiral Fell Inn bulldog! Frohe Festtage! I know I am jumpin' the gun here, but Christmas is my favorite holiday! Oh, that is Deutsch or German for 'Happy Holidays!' German Christmas sails into Baltimore! I have spent me quite a lot of time overseas and this is one of my favorite events to attend to with me best friend Fin from the Pier 5 Hotel! The West Shore Park at Baltimore’s Inner Harbor will once again transform into a European Wonderland for the annual Christmas Village. Starting from Thanksgiving and running in 2015 for the first time until the very last Sunday in December (November 26th – December 27th), a large variety of weekday and weekend events designed to please young and old await to be explored! Over 50 international vendors – located both inside a huge heated festival tent and outdoors in traditional wooden booths – will offer their unique giftware! Always a Must-See: famous German vendor Kathe Wohlfahrt, which features genuine German Arts and Crafts such as Schwibbogen, Pyramids, Glass Ornaments, Nutcrackers and Incent Smokers. Wander the market with the smell of sweet waffles, gingerbread and Gluhwine (mulled wine) wafting through the air or enjoy a sizzling Bratwurst right from the grill – our food vendors offer a large selection of authentic German and European specialties to satisfy everybody’s sweet and savory tooth! New in 2015, the Village will be decorated with traditional Herrnhuter Moravian stars imported directly from Germany, so Christmas Village in Baltimore will surely get ye, your family and friends into the Christmas Spirit! What are ye waiting for? Come and celebrate with us at Baltimore’s authentic German Christmas Market!
