Frankfurt Christmas Market
Frankfurt Christmas markets provide breaks to traditional locations on holidays to the German Christmas markets.

Frankfurt Christmas Market is one of the oldest in all of Germany. Located at the Römerberg (Frankfurt’s historical centre), St Paul’s Square and Main Quay, the market is officially opened with a concert. Visitors are treated to a wide fringe programme consisting of concerts, tower horns trumpeting from the balcony of St Nicolas Church, an art exhibition of local artists at the Römerhallen and St Paul’s Church, and the “Winter lights” event at the botanical gardens Palmengarten.

The enchanting setting of the Frankfurt Christmas markets is adorned by an enormous, twinkling fir tree in the heart of the old town. The massive spruce is the time-honoured symbol of the market, illuminating the old town centre with thousands of fairy lights. Traditional Christmas decorations and jewellery are available here alongside modern arts and crafts, whilst typical Frankfurt products such as pottery, earthenware and Christmas candies are also on offer.

The Frankfurt Christmas market features a brass band as well as toys and crafts unique to the region. The streets are lined with vendors selling only the finest treats including hot apple wine and the sweet regional delicacy the 'Bethmännchen'.

As one of the most idyllic Christmas markets in Frankfurt, the event at the medieval Town Hall offers a wonderfully festive experience. A unique shopping experience can be found with original handmade ornaments and trinkets available from the many craftsmen that come to showcase their work. Frankfurt city breaks are popular with couples looking for a romantic break away from the hustle and bustle of modern living.

A special extension to the traditional Christmas Market is the “Pink Christmas Market” at Friedrich Stoltze Square. Dedicated to Frankfurt’s LGBT community and anybody looking for something a little bit different, its stalls and Christmas trees glow in bright pink.
