2019 Birmingham German Christmas Market Guide

Planning to visit Birmingham's German Christmas Market in 2019? Here's everything you need to know.

When is the Birmingham Christmas Market open?

The 2019 Christmas Markets launch on Thursday 7th November and finish on Monday 23rd December. The markets are open daily between 10am and 9pm.

What is the Birmingham German Christmas Market?

Markets in the plural might be a better description. They consist of lots of open air stalls (with some cover in places) where you can buy a wide range of crafts for Christmas presents, food, drinks, sweets, jewellery - mostly from Frankfurt in Germany but also locally made arts and crafts. The market makes a great afternoon/evening out in the city centre as there are plenty of food and drink stalls (sit down and stand up). A trip will certainly get you in the festive spirit. Birmingham's Christmas market is one of the biggest and best in the UK. The markets are an annual event in the city's calendar usually launching six weeks prior to Christmas. 

Where can I find the Birmingham Christmas Market?

The markets run from right outside our front door at Rotunda (part of Bullring), all the way to the top of New Street and into Victoria Square. They are over a kilometre long. 

How do I get to the Birmingham Christmas Market?

There are multiple ways to come into the city centre if you're hoping to visit the Christmas Markets. Accessible via bus, tram, train and by car you have a range of options available to you. If you do decide to travel by car and are staying with us at Rotunda, we offer discounted overnight parking at the Bullring's underground carpark. To find out more information on how to find us and the markets on our doorstep, download our helpful concierge app, available to download for free on iOS and Android or view a web version of the app here.
