Brought to us by CityMoments, this Germanic market's a bit smaller, a little less commercial than the others, and still real cozy. There will be decorated wooden stalls offering handicrafts and gifts, festive baked treats, glühwein (mulled wine), and other drinks to keep you warm. There will also be food vendors peddling German specialties and other treats from around the world. This market is relatively new, just in its second edition, but you can bet it'll be nice and crowed with Jing'an expats. Open weekdays 5pm to 9pm and weekends 12pm to 9pm till December 17.
During the week, entry is free, Saturday-Sunday you can pre-sale tickets for 40rmb on SmartTicket, includes one mulled wine (kids under 10 free).
