The Frankfurt Christmas Market is known to be one of the largest and oldest Christmas markets in all of Germany. It’s based in the historic part of the city (Römerberg and St Paul’s Square) and it’s safe to say that the beautiful scenic buildings surrounding the markets make it that little bit more special.
The bold and bright Christmas decorations look so pretty and there’s a huge Christmas tree that literally reaches the sky! It looks especially enchanting at night when it’s all lit up and sparkly. It’s adorned with pretty red bows and really looks quite spectacular. The overall atmosphere as you’re walking through the market is truly magical and it SNOWED the day we went which made it feel even more festive!
There’re a lot of different types of stalls including ones that sell handmade wooden toys and cute little decorations. You’ll also find stalls that focus on delicious Christmas specialities, the scent of gingerbread, chestnuts and hot chocolate literally just fills the air as you’re walking around. In fact, the food stalls seem to be never ending! Our favourite one has to be the pretzel stall. The pretzels are literally almost as big as your head! The chocolate one is so yummy and it’s definitely better to buy one and share it otherwise you’ll be walking around with it for ages.
If you’re thinking of going to the Christmas Market they’re running untill the 22nd December. The opening times are as follows:
- Monday to Saturday – 10:00am – 9:00pm
- Sunday – 11:00 am – 9:00pm
