"WINTER: Christkindlmarkt on Daley Plaza" State Street & The Loop Tip by pedersdottir

State Street & The Loop, Chicago: 37 reviews and 74 photos

  A Christmas Greeting from Germany
by pedersdottir

The first 3 weeks of December bring a slice of Alt-Deutschland to the plaza in front of the Daley Center. Booths serving mulled wine, warm pretzels and German specialties provide the fuel for shoppers to check out the displays of handmade tin, wood and glass ornaments. Sample the gingerbread from Nuremberg or the marzipan from Lubeck. Santa and a helper are on hand for photo ops and for taking special requests from good little girls and boys. Spend half an hour or half a day.

Directions: Daley Center Plaza
Dearborn & Washington Streets

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
