FRANKFURT CHRISTMAS MARKET
November 23 – December 22, 2011
Legend has it that Germany gave the world the idea of the Christmas tree among a great many other Christmas rituals.
It is of no great surprise, therefore, that when the festive period arrives, Frankfurt pulls out all the stops. The historic Römerberg is the setting for this world famous market, which hosts a 30-foot Christmas tree along with around 200 beautifully illuminated market stalls. On offer at the Frankfurt Christmas Market are handcrafted wooden toys, traditional pastries and local specialties in addition to old fairground rides and live bands. The scent of Glühwein, which is the German take on mulled wine, and Apfelwein, delightfully warmed apple wine, is abundant throughout. Whether picking up gifts, sampling food or merely absorbing the Germanic Christmas traditions, the Frankfurt Christmas Market is a great way to get into the Christmas spirit.
