Revel in the wintertime charm of the Old World at this Christmas market, as the Christkindlmarkt returns to Shanghai once again.
A Christkindlmarkt is a traditional Christmas market that originated in Germany. Typically held in the town square, the outdoor market features stores selling food, drinks, and handicraft items, alongside performances to keep the crowd entertained.
The Christkindlmarkt in Shanghai will be in the same spirit. Taking place in Jing’an, there will be baked apples, chestnuts, gingerbread, and other regional specialties from Germany, which you can wash down with some mulled wine or rum punch.
There will also be music and games, and children can get their face painted. Santa will make an appearance on Saturdays and Sundays, so scan the QR code below to lock in your tickets for the weekends and celebrate Christmas the German way.
