Commissioned work for custom-made giant Christmas pyramids and figures for outdoor use

Christmas pyramids are light frames that are used as pre-Christmas room decorations and originally come from the Ore Mountains. In the small original, the carousel-like frames are driven by the rising heat from candles placed below, which set a rotating impeller in motion at the top, and are usually decorated with figures of angels and saints as well as nativity scenes.

There are now a large number of different large christmas pyramids, which can be found primarily on German Christmas markets and are very popular. As an eye-catcher for a wide variety of occasions, the oversized Christmas pyramids ensure big eyes and a particularly festive atmosphere during Advent.

Christkindlmarkt in Carmel, IN (USA)

Steinbach Glühwein Pyramid

Steinbach has partnered with Carmel Christkindlmarkt, Inc. to bring this beautiful installation to the USA. We see the great potential of the Carmel Christkindlmarkt, and want to be part of its continued success. This partnership will ensure that Steinbach will be adding to the cultural authenticity of the Christkindlmarkt for many years, and will also ensure that this iconic German Glühwein Pyramide will be a fixture of the Christmas traditions in Carmel for generations to come.

Inspired by the traditional German Christmas decoration called the "Weihnachtspyramide" or Christmas Pyramid, these life size versions of the Christmas Pyramid have a rich history and tradition at the Christmas markets in Germany.

​Among other things Steinbach realised the financing and the new construction of the pyramid with all the technical difficulties regarding the bar stations and lighting. Furthermore we were responsible for the export and import of the pyramid by sea freight.
