Frankfurt Christmas Market

27 November – 21 December 2023

With its sheer size and vast number of visitors, the Frankfurt Christmas Market is one of the most significant Christmas markets in Germany. Elaborate and creative stand decorations, the backdrops of the Römerberg and St Paul's Square and the huge Christmas tree combine to also make the Frankfurt Christmas Market one of the most beautiful in all the land.

Opening hours

Mondays - Saturdays 10:00 am - 9:00 pm
Sundays 11:00 am - 9:00 pm



Römerberg, St Paul's Square, Main Quay, Hauptwache, Friedrich Stoltze Square

On the Friedrich-Stoltze-Platz it will be pink again. With the "Rosa Weihnacht", the Christmas market is supplemented by a gastronomic area for the gay community of the Rhine-Main area. This section is of course not only reserved for the target group. By means of illumination, decoration and design, a flair is unfolded whose appeal guarantees a wide radius of effect.

There are also many Christmas stalls to be found at the Hauptwache. A visit is worthwhile, because Frankfurt's largest shopping mile, the Zeil, just opposite the Hauptwache, invites you to Christmas shopping.

Since 2021, the Roßmarkt has been part of the Frankfurt Christmas Market, so the market extends from the Roßmarkt over the Zeil down to the Römerberg and the Main.

The History of Frankfurt's Christmas Market

The Frankfurt Christmas Market is indeed no ordinary event. Its history has been traced back to 1393, when first reference thereof was made in official documentation. The market was traditionally accompanied by the performance of ecclesiastical mystery plays, which were also held on the Römerberg.
