Celebrating a white Christmas is at the top of many people's bucket lists — and now you can cross it off with the German International School Sydney's annual Christmas Market. Held on August 17–18, the market brings festive cheer to Sydney's northern beaches with a host of open-air market stalls, traditional German food, fairy lights and music.
Before you explore, grab a mug of warm and spicy mulled wine from the Glühwein Hut. The market will be overflowing with traditional German cuisine, including favourites such as bratwurst, sauerkraut, pancakes and pretzels. Styled like a classic European Christmas market, the array of stalls will be covered in charming fairy lights with many offering a range of high quality local produce, festive decorations, homewares, jewellery and more.
There will also be a giant inflatable 'snow globe' with fake snow that you can step inside, a bonfire that'll keep you thawed and some marshmallows going around that could use some light toasting on the flames.
The German Christmas Market will run from 5–9pm on Friday, August 17, and 4–9pm on Saturday, August 18.
