DescriptionChristkindl Market's origin goes back to the Middle Ages when farmers, tradesmen and artisans met around churches with song, food and small gifts. In 1310 in Munich, Germany, it was called "Nikolausdult". After the reformation of the church in the 16th century, Nikolaus, the gift giver was replaced by the Christkindl (or Christ Child). Christkindl Markets became a popular venue for selling toys and gifts. The festival is now celebrated around the world.
