Aromas of gourmet sausages, Hungarian Lángos, German Gluhwein, Fresh Falafel, Gingerbread and steaming hot chocolate will fill the air as you wander through the Christmas Market.

If you are searching for the perfect Christmas present the market has hand-crafted gifts and decorations, jewellery, limited edition photographic prints, Hurling watches and clocks, Trendy Socks, PaperBear Greeting cards, knitwear, fragrances and hemp products for people and pets.
