The German Holiday Market is IN PERSON at the Mountain View Caltrain Station!
11 am - 9 pm
The German Holiday Market recreates the jovial atmosphere of a traditional open-air, European winter market in Mountain View's Caltrain Station. Shop for unique, handcrafted gifts from Germany and local artisans: Wood ornaments and nutcrackers from Germany, Lebkuchen (gingerbread), Stollen, chocolate, toys, ceramics, and knitwear. Taste traditional German sausages and pretzels and warm up with a mug of Glühwein (warm mulled wine), the hallmark of these winter markets. The German Holiday Market offers plenty of activities for the entire family, including live performances and arts and crafts.
