I wanted to share a few photos from the Frankfurt Weihnachtsmarkt.
This Christmas market runs for about a month and is filled with stands that sell handicrafts and food and hot drinks. I tasted some of my daughter's hot kinderpunsch and it was flavored with Christmas spices and was very good. Frankfurt's market is large and crowded and has millions of visitors.
Here is the very tall Christmas tree in the Römerberg, the main square downtown.
And another view of this square.
Here is another section of the Christmas market, a few blocks away, right at dusk. It isn't crowded yet--an hour later it was hard to walk through the market.
A gingerbread stand. The heart shaped cookie says Frohe Weihnacht (Merry Christmas).
There are hundreds of Christmas markets throughout Germany and we hope to visit another market this coming weekend.
Have a wonderful holiday season.
