    Why Go There?

    End of November until shortly before Christmas

    The Christmas market in Frankfurt Main against the backdrop of 'Römer' and countless half-timbered houses is one of the most beautiful in Germany. An eye-catcher is the huge Christmas tree.

    The Christmas market offers a large number of Christmas decorated market stalls (about 240) and culinary specialties like 'Brenten', 'Bethmännchen' and 'Quetschemännchen' – typical Frankfurt baked goods. One of the greatest admirers of Alt-Frankfurt Christmas snacks was Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, the German poet.

    Selected art works from the Ore mountains (Erzgebirge), candles, puppets, Christmas tree ornaments, Nutcrackers and Tin toys can be bought. The selection is large and affordable for all people.

    Multiple carousels are waiting for the younger visitors. On 6 December comes Santa Claus. 

    Three times a day (9.05, 12.05 und 17.05 Uhr), visitors can listen to the carillion of the old Nikolai Church (Nikolaikirche).

    Tip: A trip in a historic stagecoach around the Christmas market. Departure: every quarter hour at the stop 'Brewing Bach Straße'.

    The Christmas market Frankfurt Main is one of the oldest Christmas markets in Germany (it was first mentioned in historic sources in 1393).

    Merry Christmas. Enjoy your trip.

    Local speciality

    The 'Bethmännchen' are a Frankfurt bakery speciality. Small balls are formed from a marzipan dough made from ground almonds, icing sugar and rosewater. They will be decorated with three halved almonds, glazed with egg yolk and baked. Very tasty!
