With over 200 elaborate stalls selling arts, crafts, food, drink and more, as well entertainment and the giant mesmerising 30m high Christmas tree sat proudly in the square, you’ll feel the warmth of Christmas. You can shop for gifts at all the beautiful booths with handmade gifts, delicious treats and souvenirs to bring home to loved ones.

If you would like to find out more on the Frankfurt Tourism site click here. The Frankfurt Christmas Market is open every day of the week from 26th November until 22nd December. The gates open at 10 am Monday-Saturday and at 11 am on Sundays, however, it’s highly recommended that you visit the market in the evening hours just after the sun sets so you can make the most of the festive lights and scenery to really get you into the holiday spirit. If you are lucky enough, you may get to meet Father Christmas and his reindeer.
Whether you want to see the colourful lights and nativity displays or see German folk dances and sample some local gastronomy, Frankfurt has a Christmas market unlike any other in the world.
