This year marks the Frankfurt Christmas Market’s 20th visit to Birmingham, where it is the centrepiece of the city’s festive offer. The market will open on 7 November and run until 23 December 2019.

The signing of Frankfurt-Birmingham Partnership Agreement in 1966 began an unprecedented period of collaboration between both cities that has resulted in numerous joint projects, initiatives and collaborations.

What's at the market

The market offers a large range of traditional goods and gifts, such as handcrafted decorations, toys, jewellery and more. There's also a selection of tempting food and drink. Pretzels, schnitzels, bratwursts, and roasted almonds will tempt your taste buds, and can be washed down with glühwein, weissbeer, or hot chocolate.

Where and when

Dates: 7 November to 23 December 2019. 

Times: 10am to 9pm. Except Remembrance Sunday (10 November) when the market will be open from 1pm – 9pm. 

Location: Victoria Square and New Street
