Each winter the city centre comes alive with the arrival of the Frankfurt Market, a clear sign Christmas is just around the corner. With great food, warming drinks, traditional gifts and live music, the Frankfurt Christmas Market attracts visitors from across the city and the UK.


The market has run for over 15 years and is the centrepiece of the city’s Christmas events. This year for the first time, the market will run over the whole Christmas period; Thursday 17th November right through to Thursday 29th December. 

National Express West Midlands  provides a great value group ticket for up to 4 children and two adults to travel unlimited on all buses all day long for just £8; so you could spend the day shopping in the city and soak up the festive atmosphere at the market on the evening. 

Peter Coates, Managing Director of National Express West Midlands, said:
“Travelling by bus is the perfect way to get to Birmingham for the Christmas markets, and for the rest of the festive season. There’s no need to worry about parking – we run frequent services in and out of Birmingham city centre. Plus if you catch the bus, you can enjoy some mulled wine and let us be your Designated Driver.”
