new Glühwein Pyramid 2018 

The new Glühwein Pyramid is a new feature that will literally “stand tall” at the Carmel Christkindlmarkt, which will open its second season of holiday fun at Carmel’s Center Green on Saturday, November 17.

This new German-built Glühwein Pyramid stands 33-feet tall and will serve as the primary point for a variety of flavors of Glühwein, the popular German sweet wine, at the market. The pyramid has never been seen before and will be the largest of its kind in America. It will weigh in at an estimated 10 tons and have more than 3,000 lights. More than just a “pyramid,” it will serve a definite purpose: With more than a dozen taps, it will feature a variety of flavors, plus a children’s punch and a non-alcohol option – along with two special imported craft beers.

Carmel Christkindlmarkt has partnered with Steinbach to bring this beautiful installation to Carmel for the 2018 Christkindlmarkt. Steinbach is a celebrated German company that is well known for their world-famous nutcrackers and handmade wooden Christmas products, which are also featured at the market. They see the great potential of the Carmel Christkindlmarkt and want to be part of its continued success.

As per the terms of the agreement, between the Carmel Christkindlmarkt Inc and Steinbach, the purchase and financing of this magnificent structure will take place independently of the City of Carmel. This agreement between the Carmel Christkindlmarkt Inc and Steinbach will ensure that the market will be adding to the cultural authenticity of the Christkindlmarkt for many, many years, and will also ensure that this iconic German Glühwein Pyramid will be a fixture of our city's Christmas traditions for generations to come."
