Frankfurt Christmas Market
23 Nov 2016 - 22 Dec 2016
The Frankfurt Christmas market, which origins date back to 1393, is one of the largest and, with roughly three million guests, one of the most visited in Germany. Highlight, together with the wonderful old merry-go-round, is the market’s Christmas tree - always one of the tallest in the country - which is traditionally placed in front of the Römer City Hall.
The market extends over the entire Römerberg, the Paulsplatz, Liebfrauenberg and Hauptwache as well as the Main quay; for those not afraid of heights, the crowning point is the view from the rooftop gallery of the St. Nicolas church.
The Frankfurt Tourist Office offers an array of interesting Christmas Market theme-tours (history, stories, typical Frankfurt Xmas gifts and the like). For more details and booking.
A Christmas Market Weekend Package - overnight, Xmas market coupon-booklet, Frankfurt Card - can also be booked over the Frankfurt Tourist Office - more details and booking
