A Walk Through the "Weihnachtsmarkt" in Frankfurt

By Lifenspice @lifenspice

Walk Through
The holiday season is here in full swing. I love this time of the year - streets adorned with lights and decorations, homes decorated with Christmas trees, sparkling lights, lanterns and ribbons, city covered with a white blanket of pure snow, children playing around throwing snow balls at each other...

Walking through the annual Christmas Market at my city and watching all this makes my heart swell with joy!

As the days get darker and shorter, all we need is something to compensate for the gloomy weather and to cheer us up. That is when these sparkling Christmas Markets start appearing all across the country. These markets open in the last week of November and close a week before Christmas. I have always wanted to post pictures of the market at my city on this blog and this time I finally made it.
Walk Through
The market is huge and there are so many beautiful things to capture but given the crowd and cold freezing weather which made me want to put my hands into my jacket pocket at every opportunity, what I have here is not that elaborate. Come with me as I show you around the Weihnachtsmarkt at the historic Römerberg in Frankfurt.

These charming markets have a large varieties of stalls selling traditional delicacies, regional specialties, special handicrafts and of course the famous Glühwein. Each year hundreds of make-shift stalls are set up and almost every stall keeper is a regular. We see them at the same spot with the same stall every year. Each year we look forward to go to the Christmas Market and stuff ourselves with our favorite foods. This year was the same.

We walk around the market inhaling the smells of the hot wine, the roasted chestnuts, the fresh french fries, the freshly baked flammkuchen, the chocolate-candied fruits, Crepes baking on the pan or the fresh Pretzels right out of the oven. As we absorbed the sights and inhaled the smells, it was hard not to stop everywhere to catch a bite of our favorite foods. And of course a trip to the Christmas Market is not complete without a warm mug of Glühwein, which is mulled wine with spices and is perfect for warming chilly fingers on cold frosty winter nights. This is traditionally made in large iron containers. I leave you all with these pictures untill I post here again. Wishing you all happy holidays!
