Have a Teutonic shopping experience, and don't miss the Glüwein!
German Christmas markets have become all the rage around Europe. But Birmingham was cottoned on to them over 12 years ago, and continues to thrill shoppers with over 180 stalls offering all that Frankfurt can muster. Held each year from November 5th it encompasses Victoria Square, New Street, Centenary Square and Chamberlain Square. It's the biggest German market outside Germany and Austria, don’t you know…
Crafts, gifts and jewellery can be bought for a bargain, and emphasis is placed on locally-sourced materials and artisans that make this event more Black Country than Black Forest (although there's plenty of gateau too). Among the fantastic atmosphere is the legendary Glüwein (mulled wine) - enough to keep you warm on the coldest of winter nights.
