Christmas market in Frankfurt am Main

The history of the Christmas market:

The Christkindchesmarkt used to be a purely Frankfurter affair, as only residents were allowed to visit it. Locally produced handicrafts were on offer, toys, sweets, traditional Frankfurt baked goods such as Brenten marzipan cookies, Bethmännchen pastries and Quetschemännchen prune and nut cookies. An abundance of Christmas gifts were also on offer. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe was an admirer of Frankfurt's baked goods and in far off Weimar he received a packet of his favorite Brenten cookies for Christmas every year from his mother. The Swabian poet Eduard Mörike also dedicated a 7-verse poem to the Frankfurt Brenten.

Weihnachtsmarkt-Frankfurt-Sheraton-Frankfurt-Airport The Frankfurt Christmas market, first mentioned in official documents in 1393, is among the oldest and most beautiful Christmas markets in Germany. Hot apple wine warms cold fingers, the fried sausages smell tasty and the scent of roasted hazelnuts hangs in the air. In front of the picturesque backdrop of the medieval Römer building and the timber-framed houses, the Frankfurt Christmas market provides everything that the pre-Christmas season has to offer. Naturally this includes Frankfurt's specialities such as the famous Bethmännchen pastries as well as local pottery. A special thrill for younger visitors is a ride on the nostalgic carousel at the heart of the market action by the Römer building. The Christmas market also takes place at Mainkai, at Paulsplatz, along the Kräme up to the Zeil.

The forest around Sachsenhausen's Goethe Tower offers a Christmassy backdrop and the small but exquisite market with 12 stands is a good alternative to the hustle and bustle at the Römerberg town square.
