With a history traceable back to the 1300s, the popular Frankfurt Christmas market  attracts thousands of visitors every year. Many are lured by the traditional yuletide atmosphere and delicious hot apple wine and Bethmaennchen marzipan candies.

Featuring traditional arts and crafts, a wide range of culinary specialities, a unique honey shop and much, much more, a trip to Frankfurt visiting the traditional Christmas market is sure to help you get in the festive spirit.  You can buy some typical Frankfurt Christmas specialities, such as gingerbread, marzipan biscuits and candied figures.

Frankfurt Christmas Market Highlights

International Christmas carols are sung by chorals from the stage next to the Christmas tree at Roemerberg every Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Frankfurt artists come together to display their latest creations inside St Paul’s Church and the town hall.

At 4.30pm on the Saturday before the 1st Advent (26 November), 50 bells from 10 churches  in Frankfurt chime in a harmonious display of Christmas cheer. A magical performance that can be heard across the entire city.

Santa will visit the Roemerberg stage on the 6 December at 5.30pm accompanied by children’s choir.

In particular you should not miss the tower horns sounding from the balcony of Old St. Nicholas Church every Wednesday and Saturday.
