Newest Review: ... ones. A variety of food was on offer. They had German sausage and hotdogs along with Malt Wine and rum. I was reliably informed that the sausages and other German delicacies looked delicious. However, as these items are not something I like to eat, I can't really comment on them. I did end up buying some grapes that had been impaled onto a stick and then dipped in white chocolate. They didn't ... more

Don't waste your time. It takes longer to walk from the city centre than it does to walk around it. It did not live up to any reviews I read prior to going. Hardly anybody was there, market traders were left twiddling their thumbs and wondering why they turned up. I was really disappointed because this was the main reason I travelled to Leeds.My advice: go to Birmingham christmas market. It's much bigger and much better.

Christkindelmarkt German Christmas Market (Leeds) This is a small open air market that comes to Leeds every year in Millennium Square. It lasts for a few weeks, from mid November onwards to just a few days before Christmas. I have visited this twice now, once in the evening and most recently during the day. I can say that I preferred the atmosphere when I visited during the evening. There are stalls selling various things mainly food, gifts / trinkets and alcohol. Everything seemed overpriced to me though, so I would say it was worth having a look round and to treat it as a bit of time pass, rather than doing your ... Read the complete review

Having lived near Leeds for 11 years now, I have been to the German Market many times and I go back at least once every year. Situated in Millennium Square in front of the impressive Civic Hall, the atmosphere is always brilliant. Fairy lights and festive decoration adorn every possible space, including the civic hall which in the past has displayed lights, giant wreaths and large christmas trees. Festive music plays out from the Beer Hall and can be heard wherever you are in the market. The market itself is fairly small, so you get a nice cosy atmosphere which I think can go missing at bigger markets. The market supposedly has over 40 of the wooden chalet ...

As a student in 3rd year I have experienced my last German market in Leeds. The stalls at this market aren't anything special, I have never bought any of the knick-knacks but the sausages speak for themselves. Even thought the sausages (spicy is the best) stick out of the tiny piece of crusty white French stick, they are still amazing. Any more bread and you wouldn't be able to finish it along with the 2 sausages, best teamed with the curry ketchup and a blob of mustard. The overall Christmas feel from the market is lovely, and you have to respect the poor German people who work very long hours in the freezing cold then have to make the long journey back home in time for Read the complete review

Christmas is approaching so you might consider going to a german christmas market. In Germany christmas starts at the beginning of december (the start of advent) and massive christmas markets appear selling gifts and food. These are called Christkindelmarkts. Leeds have taken on this tradition, as have many other cities, and have a small market in Millenium Square from mid november to mid december. It has been running for at least 10 years and is enjoyable to visit. It consists of about 30 wooden stalls that sell gifts and crafts, from ornaments and candles to bags and scarves. They are high quality item and you will be hard pushed to find much that ... Read the complete review
