Bethlehem Christmas Market

Christkindlemarkt in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania is one of the best Christmas markets in the Philadelphia area. It is about an hour and a half from the city, and the address is located at 101 Founders Way, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania 18015. This spectacular event is taking place on the weekends starting from November 18th and ending December 18th this year in 2022. There is a very large parking lot connected to the village which is great for traveling to this spot. The cost of tickets currently is $12 each with children 5 and under are free, and it is possible to purchase these ahead of time on their website which I have linked at the bottom of this post. There are restrooms on this site if you need to use them. 

Every year, we always eagerly await the holidays. The changing of the seasons always invigorates me, and I know winter is close once the first days of December arrive. There is something magical about the change to crisp weather, and snow dusting the yard in the morning. Christmas is the perfect time to do something a little festive, and if you are in the Pennsylvania area, I would recommend you check out the award winning Christkindlmarkt.

There are a lot of local artisans and small businesses at the market, and it is always sweet to support our communities. Our personal favorite is the Stroopie Co. stand which sells authentic Dutch waffle cookies with homemade syrup inside of them. In addition to having a delicious product, their company supports refugees who are starting over in the community by providing employment opportunities to them which is so cool!

In addition to this, the market has a large area to buy various foods in a tented area too, so you could do a lunch or dinner here if you wanted to. A couple other places that caught my eye was a record shop with art work made of actual records, various detailed ornament stands, and of course collectables featured from the famous Käthe Wohlfahrt shop which has handmade items from Germany. Honestly though, there were so many creative items if you are looking to get unique gifts for your friends and family.

I highly recommend the book “Hiking Waterfalls In Pennsylvania.” It specifically maps out where you can find waterfalls in each area and region of the state. If you are an outdoor adventurer, you will want to check this out!

  1. Ahh, I do love a Christmas market Allie and this one looks great. Stroopwafels (as they call them in The Netherlands) were one of my favourite sweet bites when I lived an Amsterdam, did you grab a pack?

  2. Christmas markets always put me into the festive spirit as I find them enchanting. The Bethlehem market looks gorgeous from your photos and I wouldn’t mind sampling some of those yummy Dutch waffles too.
