Frankfurt's Christmas market is one of the oldest and largest in Germany. Framed by the backdrops of Römerberg and St Paul's Church, the approx. 200 Christmas-decorated stalls extend to the banks of the Main, Stoltze Square and the Hauptwache. Classic items such as Christmas ornaments and decorations or candles are on offer as well as modern arts and crafts.
In its development history, the Christmas market has changed from a pure sales market into one that is also a meeting place to a large extent. Mulled wine stalls, an almost unrivalled variety of snacks and heated taverns provide the perfect setting to meet friends, family or work colleagues. The culinary offerings include Frankfurt specialities such as Beth- and Quetschemännchen, rustic products such as chestnuts, waffles, goose, Reibekuchen or barbecue specialities, as well as an international range. The new interpretations of typical Frankfurt specialities are particularly exciting: Handkäs fondue or green sauce crepes with brisket. Increasing range of vegetarian and vegan products.
