The Frankfurt Christmas Market

We have been enjoying lots of holiday activities this Christmas season. We’ve been in Germany over 2 years now, and I still hadn’t been to Frankfurt (which is only 30 minutes away). So we decided to head to the Frankfurt Christmas Market with the kids.

I loved the giant snowflake lights!

Stomper called this a "black hole" - it was a glass building, with a hole in it to the other side. It was very cool looking!

A fancy jewelry store called Schmuck. At those prices, you'd have to be a schmuck to shop there.

It was very pretty and festive. I’m not sure it was worth the hassle of traffic and finding parking – and the Wiesbaden market is just as pretty. But we all had a nice time.
