Great organization with lots of many engaging events throughout the year. You have to come see their grounds in downtown Austin! A gem of a location. Brent Hunter
We had a blast yesterday at the German Christmas Market. Great food, very nice people and awesome souvenirs. Fabianna Blanco
This was a cute little market with hot chocolate, coffee, samples of Gluehwein and gingerbread cookies provided for a donation along with a brat and pretzel stand, beer stand and a German band playing before you enter the building to the marketplace. Coming from LA I really enjoyed the homely feel of this market which had beautiful ornaments and hand-crafted wood toys, the offerings weren't huge in quantity, but were very much quality, beautiful items...overall a lovely event to attend whilst in Austin.Serena Lorien
