Our Christmas Market

 Experience the Magic of our traditional German Christmas Market!

in proud partnership with

Friday 11 August from 5pm to 9pm

 and Saturday 12 August from 4pm to 9pm  

Once a year, the German International School Sydney brings the festive season forward and transforms its playgrounds and classrooms into a magical winter wonderland for our Christmas Market. The popular event caters to young and old alike, with lovingly adorned open-air market stalls offering traditional German food and drink as well as handmade ornaments, festive decorations, candles, wooden art and crafts.

Stay warm this winter and enjoy a variety of tasty treats including specialties like homemade Glühwein (mulled red wine within a liquor licensed area) and authentic German food including bratwurst and waffles!  The sights, sounds and smells of the Christmas Market will transport our visitors to Christmas time in Germany as they immerse themselves in German culture and enjoy musical performances on the event stage, proudly sponsored by Volkswagen.

When darkness falls, a festive glow will abound, as a procession of children embark on the customary German Lantern Walk. All children are welcome to join the traditional light and sound parade where they’ll be guided by colourful lanterns (which can be purchased at the market) and sing winter and lantern songs. Furthermore, there will be Puppet Theatre & Story Time, Scholastic Book Fair, Face Painting, Art & Craft and a Second-Hand Book Stall with an excellent choice of German books and games.

Very popular with children and adults alike is roasting marshmallows at the open bonfire. So, come and gather around with a hot chocolate or roasted almonds and be part of this year’s magical winter experience on the Northern Beaches.

Stay tuned for the event programme and information about parking being published closer to the market date.
