It’s given us a decade of glorious Gluhwein, wonderful wursts and the best continental festive fares and wares – and now its back to tempt tastebuds and awaken festive spirits.
The annual German Christmas Market has returned to Leeds’ Millennium Square, celebrating 10 years of bringing the unique smells, sounds and sights of a real Deutsche yuletide to the heart of the city.
Backed this year by the Yorkshire Evening Post – the event’s official media partner – the 2011 ‘Christkindelmarkt’ will feature 40 traders from across Germany creating a scenic winter village of traditional wooden chalet stalls.
The market, organised by Leeds City Council in partnership with Frankfurt City Council, runs until December 18.
Leeds City Council executive member for leisure councillor Adam Ogilvie said: “The Christkindelmarkt has firmly established itself as one of the must-see and do festive events of the year in Leeds and we are delighted it is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year. We look forward to seeing people of all ages enjoying the magical sights and sounds it has to offer and really getting into the Christmas spirit.”
