So after the whole corona debacle Frankfurt Christmas Markets are back without any restrictions! And, we couldn’t be more delighted!  Once again it is time to indulge in the festive christmas market cheer that Germany is so famous for!

The crisp fresh air (a dusting of snow perhaps), the mulled wine or a baileys on the rocks, Christmas music and of course all the twinkling lights!  Ok start the festivities too soon and you may want to jump off a bridge, but if you gently ease into it then you should have plenty of holiday spirit to last the whole season long.

As many of you know or may have heard through the grape vine, Germany kicks ass at Christmas Markets, no one in the world knows how to put on a Weihnachtsmarkt like the Germans. Fact. People from near and far gather in Germany to experience these amazing Markts.

With this in mind, Frankfurt and the surrounding areas have some really lovely ones. Check out the list down below so you don’t miss out!  Also, our what to eat and drink at the Christmas market guide will give you plenty of food for thought 😉

Fun for the whole family.
