Leeds German Christmas Market (Christkindelmarkt)

For some continental Christmas cheer a little closer to home, the annual Leeds German Christmas Markets (Christkindelmarkt) is a great day out to get you in the festive mood.

Situated in Millennium Square, Leeds, it comprises lots of traditional, wooden stalls selling handmade wooden toys and crafts, and decorations.

I personally can’t resist going in here for the mulled wine and the bratwurst (German sausage.)

One certain way to feel the cheer is wrapping your hands around a lovely, warm mug of mulled wine and sitting next to a roaring fire!

The carousel is great for children, and adds an olde worlde feel of rides gone by from another time as the horses go round and round.

If you’re looking for decorations and toys, there’s lots of them to be found as well.

You can’t beat German Christmas markets to put you in the festive mood.

I can’t wait to go back. If not to just try the cherry mulled wine next time… 🙂

The Christkindelmarkt is open until 20th December 2014.

    Absolutely nothing for coeliacs on any of the food stalls, so parents beware if your child is gluten-free

      Oh dear, that’s a shame! Love the German Christmas market but if that’s the case with gluten it would be nice to have a bit of choice,
