Millions of visitors are expected to attend Birmingham's world famous Frankfurt Christmas Market which returns to the city for its 10th anniversary next month.
Visitors can browse more than 180 stalls selling mulled wine, grilled sausages and gifts.
The popular 36-day event kicks off in Victoria Square and New Street on November 18.
The event is the largest authentic German market held anywhere in the world outside Germany and Austria and last year's event, which attracted three million people, boosted the city's economy by £89.6million.
Birmingham City Council leader Councillor Mike Whitby, said: "I'm extremely proud of the continued success of our Frankfurt Christmas Market.
"It's remarkable to think that our market started with just 24 stalls in 2001 and the 10th annual market will have over 180.
"It's important to stress the fact that the benefits of this annual event stretch far beyond the market itself. "Visitors come here and spend money in our shops, restaurants and hotels, adding to the overall economy at a critical time."
The market is open seven days a week between 10am and 9pm.
