through easily These are the qualities of Weih nachtsmarkt the German Christ mas marHet in New Braunfels ttiat its creator Janelle Berger attributes to its success It began in 1989 when the board of the Sophienburg Museum and Archives now called The Sophien burgNew Braunfels Archives and Museum of History was searching for an idea for a fundraiser Berger was serving on the board at the time and had lived in many for several years She present ed the idea of an annual German Christmas market to the board After doing ayear of research Weih nachtsmarkt was born They do these types of markets all the time in Germany but they are outdoor Berger said They have booths made out of wood with a covering on top There are heaters inside the booths for the vendors but people do not walk Helgard is from Germahyahdfe she said Weihnachtsmarkt means Christmas night market in Ger Berger said With thehelp ofVlce Chairperson Sherri Ruben Berger got the market underway The goal of the market was raise funds for the Sophienburg and to preserve the heritage of New Braunfels It was such a success that the Sophienburg made a profit during the very first year The market grossed of which went back into the

This past year the Christ mas market raised nearly for the Sophienburg Berger thought another key rea son the market was so successful was because the vendors were treated differently a percentage of
