Having run for the last 14 years, the Frankfurt Christmas Market is now the centrepiece of the city's annual Christmas events calendar.

Birmingham’s own traders offer an entirely different selection of beautiful hand-crafted items at the Christmas Craft Market, created by local artisans, as well as ethnic goods imported from all over the world.

Traditional stalls offer the usual array of beautiful handmade toys, Christmas decorations, original jewellery and craft goods as well as a carousel to keep younger visitors entertained.

Visitors can enjoy the delights of German mulled wine (Gluhwein), grilled sausages, vegetarian options, pretzels, German beer, and for those with a sweet tooth, gingerbread, crepes and marzipan sweets.

Birmingham has been twinned with Frankfurt (www.frankfurt.de) for more than 40 years.
