I love going to Christmas markets, but as i don’t drive I normally just stick to the local Victorian Christmas Market in my town. But I would love to visit some others, One that looks really good it the Birmingham Frankfurt Christmas Market and Craft fair.
It’s on between 13 November – 22nd December at Victoria Square ,New street, Centenary Square & Chamberlain Square from 10am – 9pm.
With over 180 stalls selling things from gifts and jewellery to handmade toys and decoration. There is something to please everyone. And has it’s the largest German market outside of Germany and Austria you will find lot’s of traditional German foods like the bratwurst, brezel and of course some German Beer.
If your like me and you don’t drive, you could always get the train. And why not make a real day of it and instead of driving back home late at night or standing around at train station in the cold, why not stay in a local hotel for the night. The CP Birmingham NEC is ideal. After you have finished your Christmas shopping you can go back to your hotel and have a nice shower and relax. Then you can have another look around the market the day after before travelling back home. If you are looking for a less busy location to stay you could try the nearby Hi Coventry M6 jct 2 hotel.
Are you visiting any Christmas Markets this year?
