Overview
More
Frankfurt has one of the oldest and largest Christmas Markets in Germany that has been running since 1393. It is a traditional winter market full of festivities, with Christmas carols and church bells ringing, and of course the giant Christmas tree, located in the scenic old town centre, decorated with thousands of lights, ribbons and bells. The market attracts more than 3 million visitors per year with more than 200 stalls to keep them busy. Many of the stalls sell classic wooden toys, rocking horses, dolls and decorations; others focus on delicious Christmas specialities like mulled wine, roast chestnuts, grilled sausages and gingerbread, filling the air with wonderful yuletide aromas. Don't miss out on the historical merry-go-round, lit up and decorated with wooden carved horses. It starts at the end of November and carries on through December.

I had the good fortune of being in Frankfurt during their annual Christmas Market. I mostly visited the area around Frankfurt's historic Old Town, which was a perfect setting. The market had an array of booths selling a nice range of Christmas decorations. I picked...More

I hand some gluhwein and enjoyed walking around the market at night. The design was beautiful, and the music was really enjoyable. I can't wait to return in the winter!

Frankfurt is a super cute city but probably not worth a very long stay, just a day or one night. The buildings are so pretty and not like any other city in Germany. The markets were quite nice, and they had a very tasty pretzel...More

We have been to 7 different Christmas markets and apart from Valkenburg, Frankfurt falls firmly in last place. A disproportionate number of food stalls, the other items weren't that great and most of the stallholders were miserable. There was also a distinct lack of atmosphere....More
