And here we are again, it’s almost Christmas!!!  Honestly, it’s hard to believe another year has flown by?!!!  Thankfully this year I’m heading for warmer shores to thaw my toes and get my tan on!

However, before I head off here’s The Frankfurt Edit’s annual Christmas Guide!   And as always the goal of this guide is is to showcase as many local Frankfurt brands and stores as possible!  And of course make your festive season a little easier.

Also, we have created a downloadable version so that it’s easier to reference and have to hand, so feel free to just skip to the end and download the full guide!

So, without further a do….get inspired and shopping!


For a fuss free Christmas Lunch/Dinner

So, many of us love to eat a roast turkey on Christmas!  However, many of us do not have the time, inclination or large enough oven to cook one!  With this in mind here are a couple of places that do all the work for you.  And even more to the point, they do all the serving and cleaning too win win in our books.  So this leaves you with nothing more to do than to pick up your perfectly crisp white napkin and dab the corners of your mouth!  Oh and the bill, pick up the bill!

To best honest we couldn’t think of a more perfect setting to have your Christmas meal then at Gerbermühle.  Almost gives that sense of your grandparents home where the decorations are traditionally on point and the food comforting and plentiful!  Also, in our books there is always a mandatory post Christmas lunch walk!  And here you can either wonder in the garden beneath the trees or take yourself along the Main and watch the passing ships!


Leave the cooking to someone else! Enjoy a 4 course culinary adventure while overlooking a unique view of the lights and Frankfurt skyline.
