Shopping at Weihnachtsmarkt
Billed as a German-style Christmas market with a Texas twist, Weihnachtsmarkt is an annual holiday shopping event held at the New Braunfels Civic Center on the weekend before Thanksgiving. The market serves as a fundraiser benefiting the Sophienburg Museum & Archives and their mission of preserving history and educating the public.
Shopping at Weihnachtsmarkt is an experience far from your standard trip to the mall. This market features a fantastic array of unique gift items like authentic German collectibles, ornaments, decorations, specialty items, jewelry and apparel, antiques, and much more. Retail merchants and artisans gather at the Civic Center each year to sell their wares during the three full days of this exciting and festive event. Fashioned after the charming Christmas markets of Germany, Weihnachtsmarkt has become a highly anticipated annual tradition in New Braunfels.
If you can’t wait for market time, you can kick things off early at the Star Party on Thursday, November 21, from 6 to 9 p.m. This dazzling pre-market gala is $75 per person and features preview shopping, cocktails, and cuisine. Daily admission to Weihnachtsmarkt is $12, and hours are Friday, November 22, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Saturday, November 23, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and Sunday, November 24, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Bring the kids for “Elfies” with Santa during show hours on Saturday and Sunday.
