Come to the German International School of Silicon Valley’s German Holiday Market (Weihnachtsmarkt) on Saturday, December 8, 2018, from 11 am to 9 pm, at City Hall Plaza in Mountain View.
The German Holiday Market recreates the festive and inviting atmosphere of the open-air winter markets found in villages throughout Austria, Germany and Switzerland.
The annual holiday market offers warm hospitality and gastronomical delights, including Glühwein (warm mulled wine) and Kinderpunsch (warm cider), Würste (sausages), Bier (beer), Bretzln (pretzels), Stollen (cake with candied fruit and dusted with powdered sugar), Lebkuchen (gingerbread) and Gebrannte Mandeln (toasted candied almonds).
German, European and local artisans and merchants will offer unique gifts, including an array of handcrafted ornaments, jewelry, clothing, artwork, sweets and toys. Attractions for the whole family include amusement games and activities, a petting zoo, a choo-choo train, face painting and more.
Enjoy live entertainment, including orchestral and choral performances of holiday favorites. Plus, take the opportunity to practice speaking German: Noch einen Glühwein, bitte (Another warm mulled wine, please).
