Shop, Eat and Drink in Birmingham’s German Christmas Market

After a year-long wait, we can announce that Birmingham’s Frankfurt Christmas Market is finally here! Though many out there may say that visiting London’s Winter Wonderland is a must, we think differently. Perhaps you’re wondering why? Then, read on!

About the Market

Dates: Open daily from November 15th to December 23rd, 2018.
Opening hours: 10am to 9pm.
Location: Victoria Square, New Street Birmingham.

Birmingham’s Frankfurt-style Christmas Market is special for many reasons, one of them being that it’s the largest market of its kind outside of Germany and Austria! That fact alone beats any other market or fair in the country.

Every year, over 80 stalls set up in Victoria Square to sell food, drinks, crafts, jewellery, toys, ornaments and everything in between. The festive atmosphere is contagious everywhere you go, especially on snowy days. Given its popularity, expect big crowds over the weekends and close to Christmas day. Luckily, by staying at Park Regis Birmingham you’ll be within walking distance of Victoria Square — no more worrying about parking!

Food

As an authentic German Christmas market, you can find typical seasonal flavours that will satisfy even the most demanding palates. Why not grab a cup of mulled wine whilst you stroll among the stalls looking for that perfect Christmas gift?
