Christmas Shopping at Leeds Christkindelmarkt

2012-12-13 2

Lots of cities across the UK have a German-themed market at Christmas time, and luckily for me Leeds is no different. Welcome to the Leeds annual Christkindelmarkt!

Leeds German Market, or Christkindelmarkt to give it its authentic name, usually arrives in Leeds mid-November and will be around right up to Christmas. It is not as big as some of the other markets around, but it is one of the best places to go for a drink and a celebration around this time of year. Obviously there is the usual pull of nice drinks and a bit of raucous behaviour.

There are also lots of lovely food to eat at the market, but mainly I think people go along for the lure of the amazing sausages, which are cooked on huge barbecues, suspended from the air.

There are also lots of lovely things to buy at the market, and it is a great place to get a spot of Christmas shopping done, with loads of gifts and sweets and craft-type things to purchase. There are stalls selling all sorts, from wooden toys to jewellery, to home-made stollen cakes. They’ve even added a giant moose head singing Christmas carols, as well as the regular carousel!

If you are in Leeds doing some Christmas shopping, then you will find the market in the city centre: Millennium Square, LS2 3AD.
