The German tradition, lives in Philadelphia with the Christmas Village.
For several years now, three Philadelphia and Nuremberg have established a deep bond. Visiting the Christmas Village, the German imprint of the Christkindlmarkt is evident.

Philadelphia Christmas is modeled on traditional German and European markets. You can walk among the more than 80 stands, among sparkling lights and a riot of colors, scents and flavors. It is Bavarian and German gastronomy that is the master but there are also typical products from every corner of Europe.
Waffle. Gingerbread. Bockwurst. And mulled wine to warm up your evenings.
And, of course, there will be no lack of articles and craft objects, ornaments, jewels …

The setting is that of the beautiful Love Park, completely renovated. The context, really fascinating and suggestive. It starts, as usual, Thanksgiving Day to end on Christmas Eve.
