The German Christmas Market is returning to Bristol’s Broadmead for a seventh year this November. Broadmead is in the heart of the Bristol Shopping Quarter and the German Markets will arrive on 6th November and stay until 22nd December, giving you plenty of time to pick up a traditional Christmas gift or two.
Alongside the traditional chalets selling all kinds of festive goods, the German Market also brings a traditional wintery beer garden to Broadmead, offering hot and cold drinks from 10am to 10pm every day throughout opening. The festival also features plenty of bright Christmas lights, a nativity pyramid and a giant advent calendar just like you’d find in towns up and down Germany. The entertainer brought in for this year’s festival is Der Alpen Klaus who is known for his appearances at the Munich Beer Festival and he offers up a mixture of Bavarian music and also his personal take on some more contemporary tunes. For this year’s Christmas markets he will be performing from his Christmas repertoire which includes up to 500 recognisable and traditional tunes. In total there will be 38 different decorated chalets selling food, drink and Christmas gifts and this is all in the heart of Bristol’s shopping area.
Visiting Bristol during the festive festival is a truly memorable experience and with the chance to stroll through the markets in the centre of the city. The central location means it is easy to pick up your Easirent hire car outside the airport, be in the centre within 25 minutes and settle in to your accommodation before diving into an authentic Christmas market experience.
