Hotels near the Christmas Markets
The Christmas Markets in Manchester's Albert Square, St Ann's Square and Exchange Street incorporate a traditional German Market, a European Market and an Arts and Crafts Market. The popular markets have now spread to New Cathedral Street and Brazennose Street.
The traditional German Market turns St Ann's Square into a winter wonderland with brightly lit traditional wooden chalets packed full of unusual Christmas gifts. Don't miss the Gluhwein stall! Elsewhere you can find French cheese and charcuterie, Dutch plants and bulbs, Christmas trees, Belgian chocolates, homemade chutney, pickles, aromatic oils and Christmas decorations.
Look out for the Weihnachtspyramide, a giant German Christmas pyramid with a Nativity scene, and the magical alpine house with traditional decorations and model reindeer.
