Birmingham's Frankfurt Christmas market

Gingerbread biscuits at a Christmas market

Between 13 November and 22 December, Birmingham is transformed into a Christmas grotto as the Frankfurt Christmas market arrives in the city centre. Now in its 14th year, the market attracts thousands of visitors every year.

Up to 180 wooden traditional huts fill New Street and Victoria Square in the centre of Birmingham with Christmas crafts, decorations, handmade jewellery and gifts.

There are also a number of stalls selling traditional German winter food and drink, including:

  • Mulled Wine (gluhwein) and German beer
  • Grilled sausage
  • German spiced biscuits
  • Marzipan sweets
  • Pretzels
  • Crepes
