Birmingham’s Frankfurt Christmas Market is a firm fixture in the city’s annual calendar and, together with the neighbouring Christmas Craft Market, a massive favourite with both residents and visitors to the city from across the UK and Europe. Birmingham comes alive every winter with the arrival of the Market, a clear sign that Christmas is just around the corner. With over 120 stalls, covering New Street, Victoria Square and Centenary Square, is there something for everyone.
The Frankfurt Market offers a wide range of products, for example traditional goods and gifts, such as handcrafted decorations, toys, jewellery and more. There’s also a selection of tempting food and drink. Pretzels, schnitzels, bratwursts, and roasted almonds will tempt your taste buds, and can be washed down with glühwein, weissbeer, or hot chocolate.
The Christmas Craft Market, located close by in Centenary Square, will offer handmade crafts, soaps and candles by local artisans, as well as a wide range of unique and quirky items imported from around the world. Additionally, visitors can enjoy the popular ice rink and big wheel.
The market has run for over 15 years and is a centrepiece of the city’s Christmas events. This year for the first time, the market will run over the whole Christmas period, right through to 29 December.
When ? From 17th November to 29th December 2016
