German Christmas Market, Broadmead

It is that time of year again, the German Christmas market has returned to #Bristol for a festival of feasting, drinking and shopping. #Broadmead has been transformed into a winter wonderland with the descent of 38-German-inspired chalets. Best enjoyed after the sun goes down when visitors will be able to appreciate the festive lights blinking, twinkling and brightening up an otherwise imposingly dark few months.

When the Christmas markets arrive, we know that Christmas is in sight. Which is why we should all be looking forward to spending at least one evening in this charming winter wonderland to help us get into the Christmas spirit.
