The Featured City for 2016
The leitmotiv, or recurring theme, in each year's Market is a tradition that is unique to the Mifflinburg Christkindl Market. Each year's leitmotiv features a story or culturally significant icon from a featured city in Germany or Austria.
Seiffen, Germany is the featured city for the 2016 Mifflinburg Christkindl Market. Our leitmotiv are the treasures of the Erzgebirge and will act as the inspiration for many of the decorating accents you will discover throughout the Market this year. Seiffen is Germany's craft capital and will be prominently featured in the Mifflinburg Christkindl Market's 2016 ornament, along with the smokers, candle arches, and nutcrackers that originated in Seiffen.
