Birmingham's annual German Christmas market has been ranked among the best in Europe by lifestyle magazine Tatler.

The annual event, which is twinned with Frankfurt in Germany, attracts thousands of visitors every year.

The magazine placed Birmingham's market third overall, behind Germany's market in Cologne and the Christmas Markets in Prague.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of Birmingham's twinning with Frankfurt, and one of the greatest products of their partnership has to be the traditional German Market that lands every year in Victoria Square and New Street. It's all about the authentic German foods and drinks on offer.
