Disabled Visitor Information

Disabled Access
Birmingham’s Frankfurt Christmas Market is located on Victoria Square and New Street and the whole market can be accessed by wheelchair users, as it is possible to take a route that avoids steps.

Visitors with registered Assistance Dogs
The Christmas Market can be very busy on Friday and Saturday evenings so you may wish to time your visit for earlier in the day or on alternative evenings.

There is ample parking in the vicinity of the Christmas Market. Details of city centre car parks can be found here Please note that the Birmingham City Council car park on Navigation Street does not have a lift and may therefore be unsuitable for some visitors.

Accessible toilet facilities for disabled people are available on site in the area adjacent to the stage on Victoria Square.

Sale of Alcohol / Challenge 25

Birmingham’s Frankfurt Christmas Market is committed to selling alcohol responsibly. As part of that commitment we operate Challenge 25 for the sale of alcoholic and certain non-alcoholic drinks.

If you are lucky enough to look under 25 you will be asked to prove that you are aged 18 or over when you buy age restricted products.

Acceptable forms of ID are:

  • Photographic driving licence
  • Passport

Please bring the correct form of ID with you as bar staff do not have the discretion to accept any other forms of ID.


Public toilets are located on the junction of Victoria Square and on Waterloo Street (in the area adjacent to the stage). Please note that there are no public toilets inside the Council House.
