German market sets out its stall.

THE UK's largest German Christmas market returns to Birmingham today after surviving calls for it to be replaced by a Dickensian-themed event.

More than 60 stallholders from Frankfurt have set up shop in New Street and Victoria Square to form the largest such market outside Germany and Austria.

Among the new attractions this year will be a traditional bakery on Victoria Square, producing fresh bread and pastries.

The market offers a range of handmade gifts including ceramics, candles, glasswork, jewellery and Christmas decorations.
