Birmingham’s Frankfurt Christmas Market

The largest authentic German Christmas market outside Germany or Austria

Head to the Birmingham Frankfurt Christmas Market from 18 November to 23 December to explore over 180 beautiful stalls for that perfect Christmas gift, soak to up the atmosphere and join millions of visitors enjoying delicious German food.

Open daily from 10am-9pm with stalls filling Victoria Square and Upper New Street and over 2 million visitors a year; it’s the largest authentic German Christmas market outside of Germany or Austria!

Enjoy the feel of a small village within the heart of the bustling city centre, with picturesque wooden chalets offering a fabulous array of unusual and handmade gifts, including ceramics, candles, glasswork, jewellery and Christmas decorations. A number of stalls also feature traditional German items such as wooden toys, nativity scenes and marionettes.

And of course you can sample the delights of German mulled wine (Gluhwein), grilled sausages, German beer, and if you’ve got a sweet tooth, gingerbread and marzipan sweets. And don’t miss the traditional German breads and pastries that are baked fresh at the market each day.

The Frankfurt Christmas Market is a symbol of Birmingham’s strong relationship with its partner city, Frankfurt, and a truly continental experience of lights, sounds, smells and traditions.

To visit, simply head to Victoria Square, Birmingham , between 12 November and 23 December and enjoy!
