Whilst in Birmingham, the German Christmas Market will be in town...

During December, the largest authentic German Christmas market outside of Germany or Austria will be being held in Birmingham...

Birmingham’s Frankfurt Christmas Market offers a large range of traditional goods 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.
