Finally Christmas again! But let's be honest: Christmas shopping isn't really that much fun. Full stores (which the retail trade is understandably happy about), stressed people and a hectic pace that is not at all atmospheric are things we have all experienced in the run-up to Christmas. At the Hessen-Center, things are set to change this year. Up to and including Christmas Eve, visitors are to be accompanied by a particularly Christmassy atmosphere during a relaxed shopping trip.
To make this happen, the Hessen-Center Frankfurt has come up with something very special: From atmospheric events and promotions, an enchanting Christmas decoration, as well as many other small and large attentions that make every visitor always amazed - there is something for everyone. So there is much to discover!
Pre-Christmas spirit for big and small center guests
Winter atmosphere with wow effect can be experienced from 07.12. on the winter landscape in the upper floor of the center. Almost real-looking, life-size polar bears stand in the midst of a snow landscape made of snow fluff and Christmas trees, and countless snowflakes enchant from the ceiling. Equally unique Santa's sleigh with four reindeer in the team on the first floor of the mall invite you to marvel, linger and take pictures.
On Fridays and Saturdays, not only the small, but also the large visitors, can be photographed together with Santa Claus in front of a beautiful backdrop. To make Christmas shopping on the Advent weekends as pleasant as possible, Christmas angels will help with questions and distribute delicious Christmas treats.
A highlight this year for the little visitors: write a wish list to Santa Claus from the Hessen-Center and drop it in the "Santa Mailbox" near the reindeer on the first floor. With a little luck, children's wishes will come true. For more information and how to enter, visit the event on-site or on the website at https://www.hessen-center-frankfurt.de/ and on Instagram and Facebook.
Free gift wrapping and wardrobe service
.The Christmas service in the Hessen Center includes the entire heavenly service package around the Christmas shopping of visitors, which should be made as pleasant and memorable as possible.
To this end, the Hessen-Center offers a free packing and wardrobe service during Advent. Hard-working goblins lovingly wrap visitors' Christmas gifts upon presentation of their Hessen-Center receipt. And while strolling along the shopping street, all visitors can have their wardrobe stored free of charge. Where can you find it? On the first floor of the center, opposite Hallhuber.
Christmas Market in the Mall
Included will be familiar Christmas stalls from previous years such as the embroidery Christmas stall, McPaper Christmas store and Feinkost Angelo gift stall to name a few .The stores also offer a variety of unusual gift ideas and Christmas treats.
And if you want to take a break in between from shopping or just take a breath, you can relax in the mall's lounges or enjoy a coffee or hot cocoa in one of the gastronomic establishments in the center.
There is now really nothing in the way of relaxed Christmas shopping!
