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

I have been numerous times before to the German Market in Leeds, but this year for the first time I was extremly dissapointed. The stalls are still there, with there marvelous foods and their little trinkets. Which are superb. However when entering the Bierkeller, I was astounded at the prices. They have done away with the popular stein glasses and replaced them with pints, but are charging more this year for a pint than they did last year for a Stein. £4 a pint is a bit excessive. Mulled Wine is £5 per small cup.They are also emptying the beirkeller during the day at 4pm, and then you have to queue again if you want to go back in. It took me 2 hours to queue to get in.I can see people stopping going if the prices are kept at these levels.

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
