A visit to Birmingham during the Christmas season wouldn’t be complete without a trip to the Frankfurt Christmas Market. It’s an annual event that (in my opinion) marks the start of the season.
Every year the Frankfurt market gathers at the heart of Birmingham tempting visitors with promises of German beer, warm pretzels, ostrich burgers and more. Visitors gather to shop for souvenirs and memorabilia-type gifts or to catch up with friends over a hot glass of mulled wine. Whether with friends, colleagues or family, it’s an adaptable environment for bringing people together to experience German culture here in England and is always hotly anticipated by locals.
I’ve always tried to attend the event wherever possible; it remains open during the evenings making it even more accessible.
The Frankfurt Christmas market in Birmingham ends on 29th December 2016 – hopefully, I’ll see you there!
