You may be wondering to yourself where exactly this holiday market tradition comes from. Well, like everything else here at Plattduetsche, it’s passed down through our German heritage.

In Germany, the Christkindl Markt is an annual festive marketplace where locals go to buy gifts and other items for the holidays. We’re proud to carry out this honored German tradition here on Long Island!

The Tunes

You can’t have a Christmas event without a little holiday music. That’s why we’ve got the Santa Babies carolers and a brass band made up of members of Foehrer Musik Freunde on hand to perform!

Last but not least, we’ll be serving some of our famous German food, because you can’t visit Plattduetsche and not eat! You can expect bratwurst, Leberkäse, potato pancakes and much more! Check out the full event menu here.

Additionally, there will be a Hot Chocolate Stand with classic Hot Chocolate and a spiked version with apple vodka and Bärenjäger! Check out the prices and full menu here.
