Frankfurt Gears Up for Annual Christmas Market

FRANKFURT, Germany – Preparations were under way Thursday ahead of the upcoming opening of the annual Christmas market in the western German city of Frankfurt.

Large concrete blocks had been placed in the city center near the main shopping street as part of the security measures aimed at preventing vehicles from accessing the busy pedestrianized area.

Wooden market stalls were starting to spring up, and one even had its “bembels” – decorative jugs used for serving the regional “Apfelwein,” a German version of cider – on display.

Another stall appeared to be in the final stages of setup, its Christmas lights already glowing and a figure of Santa Claus perching on a faux chimney.

The city’s Christmas market is one of Germany’s largest in terms of the number of visitors it attracts, according to the Frankfurt Tourist+Congress Board.

It comprises stalls offering a wide selection of food, drink, decorations and gifts, laid out across the city’s Römerberg old town square and St. Paul’s Square, and spills onto the Zeil shopping street.

Frankfurt’s Christmas market opens on Nov. 27 and runs until Dec. 22.
