Birmingham Frankfurt Christmas Market

What stalls are there?

Jingle all the way on over to a range of stalls that will certainly get you into the Christmas spirit. As well as traditional goods and gifts you can also feast on a selection of food and drink. From pretzels to schnitzels and bratwurst to roasted almonds there will be plenty to dig your mittens into.

To warm up your toes or to wash down your snacks, you can tickle your tastebuds with hot gluwein, cider, or beer. Or for those who want to take the non-alcoholic route, why not dip into a hot chocolate or a variety of non-alcoholic beverages.

Is there any entertainment?

You’ll be rocking around the Christmas tree this winter as Birmingham’s Christmas Market will be full of life with a free live music programme (programme to be confirmed) on Victoria Square. With musicians from across Germany and Birmingham, you’ll be sure to sing your heart out as we approach the most wonderful time of the year.

The big wheel and ice rink are also set to return to Centenary Square this year and run from Thursday 4 November to Sunday 9 January 2022 between 10am – 10pm (except on Christmas day).
