Birmingham Frankfurt Christmas Market

Victoria Square, BIRMINGHAM, West Midlands, B1 1BD
Birmingham Frankfurt Christmas Market

About

The largest authentic German market outside Germany and Austria and the centrepiece of the city’s festive event calendar returns to Birmingham each year in mid November. 
 
The market brings a fabulous atmosphere to the city and an even better aroma!

 
8 things to do at the market


1. Eat a German Bratwurst & Brezel
German Bratwurst (white or red sausage) and Brezel are traditional German foods and are famous throughout the world. How the Bratwurst is served varies by region, but it is commonly served with a Brötchen (roll). The Brezel is type of bread and is particularly famous in South Germany and Austria. German speakers also call it "Laugenbrezel" (lyle pretzel).

 
2. Have a hot Glühwein (mulled wine)
Glühwein is a traditional and loved hot acoholic Christmas drink which is usually made of white and red wine and various spices such as cinnamon, cloves, lemon slices and aniseed. It is the perfect drink for a cold winter night.

 
3. Indulge yourself with chocolaty Crêpes
Although Crêpes are a traditional French dessert, they are one of the various food highlights of the German Christmas market. Topped with hot chocolate sauce or filled with banana, they are a must-do.

 
4. Sing along with the singing moose
Over the years, Birmingham's singing Christmas moose (Chris Moose) has become a Christmas attraction in his own right. Located directly in front of the Council House entrance, the singing moose (Chris to his mates) guarantees a Christmassy atmosphere and a lot of fun for young and old.

 
5. Listen to traditional Carols & Christmas songs
Carols in the City as well as daily bands on the Christmas market stage will create a romantic Christmas atmosphere. Enjoy a hot mug of Glühwein while listening to traditional Christmas song or great Jazz music.

 
6. Drink a crisp German beer
Enjoy a crisp German Beer with your Bratwurst, but please drink responsibly!

 
7. Take a ride on the Carousel
Take a one horse ride through the German Market on the fantastic ornate carousel. Hopefully you'll be having so much fun you'll be laughing as you go - Ho Ho Ho.

 
8. Soak up the Christmassy atmosphere
There's nothing more festive than the Frankfurt Market.  Soak up the yuletide spirit, goodwill to all men and joy to the world!
