“Chriskindlmarkt 2017”
Review of Millennium Square

Millennium Square
Reviewed 26 December 2017

Our primary reason for travelling up to Leeds for a two night hotel stay was to visit the Leeds Christmas market "Chriskindlemarkt".

We were very very disappointed, not a scratch on other Christmas markets we have visited.

We were there 6th and 7th December but it looked like they were still setting childrens rides up on the 7th.

There are not many stalls and very little variety. The drink and food was also very expensive - to be expected but more expensive than others we've visited.

I've also got to say that the traders looked unhappy and not remotely in the christmas spirit. We had to wonder if there was a underlying issue?

Not a place we felt like hanging around for very long!

We won't be returning again!

We visit Europe every Nov/Dec for the Christmas markets and have been fortunate enough to go to markets in Czechia, Austria, Switzerland, Germany, Denmark, France, England, and Wales. The one in Leeds is quite pretty and offers lots of Germanic dishes. But we were very disappointed by the low number of vendors. After about ninety minutes (including eating), we were ready to go. One other disappointment was that the mugs the Gluhwein was in didn't say Leeds, but rather tasted the Christmas Market in Birmingham. Not bad but definitely lots of room for improvement.

Lunch today , Visited the Leeds German market. Enjoyed the beer but £4.50 for a ‘pint’ in a plastic container that looked more like a good half. Sausage was tasty but £4 !!! Staff were all miserable , no smiles! Need to learn how to run a business - try smiling - it helps a lot. Would not bother going here again

Having never been to a Christmas market before ,it was nice to wander about and have a look at what was on offer, mainly beer halls, fast food outlets and novelty Christmas decorations. One thing I did notice was how expensive everything was, I would not pay the prices they were charging, having said all that we did enjoy our quick walk about the market and take in the Christmas atmosphere.

Gave it 4 stars, just as it our firs visit to a German Christmas Market.. Was just statring to get dark, so did not get the full effect, and was a little quiet... There are some lovely little stalls, selling German looking ornaments, and some of the prices are not too bad, plent of different food stalls, some rather expensive...Called in for a gluhwein, little sweet for my taste, but pleasant enough. lovely carousel.. But after an hour there, not much else to do.. Possibly a better atmosphere on a weekend evening.
