Birmingham's Frankfurt Christmas Market

The Frankfurt Christmas Market in New Street


Christmas is just around the corner when the German Market arrives. It is the centrepiece of the city’s festive offer, with great food, warming drinks, traditional gifts and live music. The Frankfurt Christmas Market attracts visitors from across the city and the UK.

The market will open on 2 November this year and run until 24 December at 8pm.

The signing of the 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.
