What kind of activities are there for children?
GCM is a family friendly venue especially during the daytime hours. We have Santa Claus for family photos with a well lit seasonal backdrop, where you are the photographer with your own camera or phone. Our goal is to provide access everyone access to Santa. We also have a Kinder Cookie Haus where kids can decorate gingerbread cookies & all proceeds go the Oconomowoc Food Pantry. Last but not least, our main stage is filled with lively & fun music throughout the entire weekend. Bring the kids in for our authentic German cuisine and take in the music while the kids dance!
What is Gluhwein and are you serving the good stuff?
Gluhwein is a hot spiced and mulled wine common to Christmas Markets all over Europe. Our Vendors are carrying Gerstacker this year. It is the original Nurnburger Christkindlmarkt Gluhwein and the best selling in Germany! Gluhwein is being made onsite by the Germans. Eat, Drink and Relax, we have you covered.
