Food and drink prices at the German market have increased for 2022 by almost 20 per cent
The Birmingham German Christmas Market opened on November 3 and there are now pretty wooden chalets full of Bratwurst sausages, Gluhwein and pretzels all around Victoria Square and down New Street.
Food and drink prices at the market have increased for 2022 by almost 20 per cent – which has caused mixed feelings for visitors.
Some believe you pay for the experience and others have called it a 'rip off'. What are your thoughts on this? Are Birmingham German Christmas Market food and drink prices reasonable?
This year you'll end up paying £12.50 for a bratwurst and beer, the same combination would have cost you £10,50 in 2021.
One donut will cost you £3 and a cup of hot mulled gluhwein is £6, with options to add amaretto (£8) and rum (also £8). A 'Schneemann Punsch' is priced at £9, pretzel £5.
Locals have taken to social media to express their views.
One person said: "This year I'm going to Lidl for my pretzel, 39p." Another added: "£3 for a donut, what a rip off."
Not all comments were negative though, another social media user said: "I'm not surprised of seeing prices going up this year."
One more person added: "I guess you pay for the experience too."
