Minnesota Has Its Very Own German Christmas Market And You’ll Want To Visit

Being home to the world’s first modern shopping mall – Ridgedale Center – plus many other small stores – not to mention the Mall of America – Minnesotans really don’t have to search too hard to find great Christmas gifts for their loved ones. But sometimes, it’s nice to shop in a more festive environment. That’s where Excelsior Christkindlsmarkt comes in. This German Christmas market is the perfect place to get into the holiday spirit, and maybe pick up a few gifts, too.
