Frankfurt boasts with one of the oldest Christmas markets
Germany
’s, but a careful look beyond the city limits reveals a range of enchanting alternatives. The markets in this part of
Germany
lure visitors with historical settings, traditional foods and drinks, and handmade gifts for a festive start of the Christmas holiday season. Most of the markets listed below are within an hour drive from Frankfurt.
Frankfurt Christmas Market (November 25–December 22, 2019)
The Frankfurt Christmas Market, or Frankfurter Weihnachtsmarkt in German, is one of the largest in
Germany
. Being a large financial centre, the city attracts countless travellers, so Frankfurter Weihnachtsmarkt is among the most visited in the country. Held at the Römerberg, St Paul's Square, Hauptwache, Mainkai (Main Quay), and Friedrich-Stoltze-Square, it features a giant Christmas tree and dozens of stalls with delicious foods and drinks. From late November to Christmas eve a lavishly decorated large area in central Frankfurt is the prime meeting and entertainment destination in Frankfurt. The market that dates back to 1393 is one of the oldest in
Germany
. In 1498 it witnessed a historic Royal Christmas Wedding.

Hanauer Weihnachtsmarkt (November 29–December 22, 2019)
The beautiful town centre of Hanau gets filled with flavours like mulled wine, cinnamon and vanilla during the traditional Christmas market season. The Brothers Grimm's Hanau provides a true fairytale atmosphere during the holidays. The market features over 75 stalls with gifts, handicrafts and delicious foods. Kids would love a mini Ferris wheel, two vintage carousels, and the fairytale train. Every day, there is live music, choirs and other entertainment. One of the main highlights of the market is a large “Advent calendar” on the Neustädter Rathaus that can be observed at 6 p.m. Hanau in only about 30-minute drive from Frankfurt, so it could be a nice one-day trip to a smaller and cosier Christmas place.
Mainzer Weihnachtsmarkt (November 28–December 23, 2019)
Christmas Market in Mainz immerses visitors in a magical atmosphere of a fairy tale. Featuring over 100 beautifully decorated stalls and set against the backdrop of the 1000-year-old Martinsdom (Martin Cathedral), Mainzer Weihnachtsmarkt is a great spot for the holiday shopping. The artists' factory produces unique handmade items. There is also a large programme of concerts, performances, and workshops, postcard printing, and carousels. Richly decorated 11-metre-high Christmas pyramid and the nearby hand-carved Nativity scenes by the Gotthard chapel of the Cathedral create magic Christmas memories.
