Alumni and students at the Birmingham Frankfurt Christmas Market in 2009

Come along after work for a festive drink at the Birmingham Frankfurt Christmas Market with fellow University of Birmingham alumni from the West Midlands.

We have hired a private indoor heated area of one of the traditional beer stalls and every alum to come along from 6pm will receive a free drink (German beer, Gluhwein or hot chocolate). The first ten to arrive will also receive a special Christmas treat!

Our stall backs onto the Town Hall and faces the corner of the Council House, sandwiched between Woktastic and the Bavarian Food Stall. For those of you who were able to join us last year, we will be located in the the same position. We will also be displaying a University of Birmingham banner. Please see map for further details (The map shows our location as being stall No 70, although the stalls themselves are not numbered).

Millions of visitors return to the Birmingham Frankfurt Christmas Market year after year to enjoy delicious German food, soak up the atmosphere, and explore over 180 beautiful stalls. The market has enjoyed great success in recent years, with stalls stretching from Victoria Square along New Street. With over two million visitors a year, it is the largest authentic German market outside Germany and Austria.

Non-alumni guests are more than welcome but will not receive a free drink.
