Based at the heart of Leeds city centre on Millennium square, Leeds Christkindelmarkt German Market attracts hundreds of locals and tourists alike. With its multiple stalls selling everything from festive decorations to delicacies, such as bratwurst sausages, goulash, schnitzels, stollen, gingerbread and waffles the smells and sights ensure you will never want to leave. Prices are also fairly reasonable.

Smaller than the Manchester equivalent the surroundings feel intimate. You can look around the market itself for free or, if you fancy indulging in a bit of festive cheer, join the queue for the Frankfurter-Scheune Festive Meeting Hall and eatery which provides restaurant quality food and musical entertainment.
Be warned, queues for this venue are often long, so on a cold winters night, make sure you plan your visit to ensure you spend as much time in the warmth as possible.

As for the families amongst you there is a selection of fairground rides to keep the children entertained.

Throughout the market there are also stalls selling warming gluwein and steins with hot chocolate and baileys for the ladies, so that once you are done with your Christmas shopping you can settle down in a nice log cabin; a great meeting point if you don't want to spend money entering the Frankfurter-Scheune itself.

Whilst it cannot be denied that Leeds market, with just over 40 stalls, isn't as numerous as Manchester or London's Hyde Park Winter Wonderland, Leeds is a fantastic city and well worth the visit.
