About

Birmingham’s Frankfurt Christmas Market is a firm fixture in the city’s annual calendar and 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. The stalls on Victoria Square and along New Street offer something for everyone.
 

The largest authentic German Christmas market outside of Germany or Austria Birmingham’s Frankfurt Christmas Market offers a large range of traditional good and gifts and a selection of tempting food and drink. Pretzels, schnitzels, bratwursts, and roasted almonds will tempt your tastebuds, all of which can be washed down with gluhwein, weissbeer (wheat beer), or tasty hot chocolate.

A great place to meet up with family and friends and enjoy the live music programme on Victoria Square. And whilst you’re here why not pick up some presents for your family and friends with everything from handcrafted wooden decorations and delicate glass baubles to in the form of the ever-favourite crystal lamps, Sounds of Nature, hand-crafted leatherwork, toys, jewellery and much more besides!

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.
