Hahndorf Christmas Markets are back! After a two-year hiatus, Adelaide’s favourite Christkindlmarkt is returning on 16th – 18th December 2022.
The triumphant return of the Hahndorf Chirstkindlmarkt has been greatly welcomed by the South Australian community, which hasn’t seen action since pre-COVID.
Every year, Hahndorf transforms into a Christmas Winter Wonderland, offering hot Glühwein, traditional Christmas ornaments, local handcrafted creators, and family-friendly Christmas activities.
Hosted by C3 Church, the Chirstkindlmarkt was cancelled in October 2021 for the second year in a row due to “extensive compliance expectations” for “volunteers, paid staff and stall holders.”
This month, the market has begun to accept stallholder applications, which will be open until Sunday 31 July.
The Chirstkindlmarkt is well-known for bringing an abundance of lights, stalls, entertainment, gifts, food and so much more to the Adelaide Hills region.
The European-style Christmas Market was listed as #32 in the 2019 Best Christmas Markets in the world list by Big Seven Travel, ahead of the Cathedral X-Mas Market (Cologne, Germany), which ranked #33.
While no street parking or allocated disabled parking is available for this event, but the outdoor area is held on bitumen, allowing access for wheelchairs, walkers, and prams.
As you save these dates into your calendar, set aside extra time for travel! During peak times of the event, the crowd can be quite congested – not unlike the traffic, due to the road closure of Auricht Road.
Also remember to bring cash! Most stallholders are cash only, but there will be onsite ATM’s available, with some vendors providing eftpos/paypal facilities.
When: 4pm – 10pm, Friday 16 Dec – Sunday 18 Dec.
Where: Cnr Main Street & Auricht Road, Hahndorf 5245.
