    I have heard it is good but never been. Would also be interested in the views of someone who has.

    Not been either, sounds really good, though. I have to be careful of crowds, get knocked off my feet fairly easily.

    It's good, very busy 4:30 onwards as all the local offices empty out and into the bars for big steins of larger or hot gluhwein; many a tipsy night after work!

    I haven't been this year yet, but one of my colleagues has and said there seems more 'European' than German stalls this year.

    And there's always the dilema of red or white sausage!

    Glad you had a good time. Well worth the drive then. Maybe in the summer come back up and see the other places worth a visit.
    I can remember when Birmingham City centre was as real $hite place. But now it is a whole lot better. I am glad to see my council tax has been put to a good use at last. (my political views will not be put on the forum though).
