Review this Christmsa Market
Customer Review
By Foxyrider, Sheffield bijou
My visit was blighted by heavy rain but even so the general feel of the market was eat, drink and drink some more! Genuine German stalls and the restaurant Alp Chalet meant it felt very er, German. A bit remote from the main shopping area, I doubt it could cope with too many visitors so that's maybe just as well. Worth a look if you are nearby but I wouldn't make a big journey to visit it specifically
By Jimmy Mac, Leeds BEST PLACE EVER
A definite highlight of the year, the GCM (as it's affectionately known) is perhaps the best pop-up attraction in the whole of Leeds, if not THE WORLD. Get there early to avoid the queues (in fact, just take the afternoon off) and you won't be disappointed. Great beer, great food, great music, great atmosphere!
By P-10, Bradford Excellent , worth looking at!
Went on a Sunday afternoon, absolutely heaving and lots of children enjoying the rides. A great atmosphere, pricy things on sale but that's Christmas. Food choice was good, a bit pricey but if you shop around it makes a difference. Well worth a visit!
By Tarrant, Nottingham Good fun
Cheap german beer and german sausages...can't beat that easily!!!
By jonny st, Burton upon trent LEEDS GERMAN CHRISTMAS MARKET
Having travelled all the way from Burton upon trent on the train the 4 of us were very disappointed with this market, after going to Birmingham last year & over 150 stalls. Take away the food & drink only stalls, only about 15 stalls to look at all over in 20 minutes.But we did have a lovely lunch at Jamie Olivers Italian resturant before the train ride home
By hunny, Pudsey good fun
I have been to this market for the past few years. It stays much the same but all of my children enjoy it as it is something different and for me it shows that Christmas it just around the corner. It may not be the biggest or the best but for the space that they are in i find it has a good assortment of stalls and the atmosphere is always a good one!
By macki, blackburn What a disappointment
After spending the last ten years at Christmas markets all over Germany and being unable to go this year (2010 ) , We thought that we would visit Leeds german Christmas market , what a disappointment it turned out to be, No atmosphere, few stalls and not sure how many of the stall holders came from germany but most of those I talked to came from Romania, it was nothing like the real german markets the only thing that was any good was the gluwein .
This is a nice little market - but it has unfortunately been a bit over-hyped. I expected it to be the ultimate German Christmas Market experience - but it is actually quite small. Access is awkward too - the Leeds Loop can be a bit frustrating if you don't know your way around. Having said that though - the food is great - with some nice bargains to be found if you look carefully. It can get a little boisterous on an evening, and it is a bit cramped due to the layout. Do visit though - as German markets are a bit scarce in the UK - but unfortunately I would rate this one behind a few of the others. Also - quite nearby, and well worth a visit - are the Manchester markets.
By LavishLadyJ, Leeds Only The Posh Know Where To Shop
This is one unique market to see. It's not cheap but you will enjoy whatever you spend on. The atmosphere is fabulous. Make a date in your diary.
By Steve The Pirate Yarrrr, Leeds Es Ist Zehr Gut !!!!
This... is a spleeeendid market. There are some very important rules though. 1) Arrive early, unless you like queues, the rain, getting wet, getting hungry, all of the above. 2) DONT jump on the tables, the bouncers don't like it, they especially don't like an invite to join in. 3) DONT try steal a glass. Just ask them nicely for a bag to take it away with, you paid for it remember ? Apparently too many people fell over with them up their tops and hurt themselves in 2008 trying to "borrow" them, so last year they brought in the bag rule. 4) HAVE LOTS OF FUN AND JOIN IN WITH THE SINGING. If you are lucky enough to have the band performing on your table, don't try touch the singers moustache, as fine as it is.
