<p>Bertl' has arrived!  Frankfurt Christmas tree 2020 arrived at the Römer

"Bertl" is here! As we had already reported to you HERE, there will also be a big Christmas tree in Frankfurt in 2020 despite the cancellation of the Christmas market on the Römerberg. This year it comes from Austria - more precisely from the Gröbminger Land in the Styrian holiday region Schladming-Dachstein. There, the spruce was felled the day before yesterday and was then able to make its way to Frankfurt.

To avoid the usual crowds that the arrival of Frankfurt's Christmas tree traditionally brings, the spruce that will adorn the Römerberg in the coming weeks arrived in Frankfurt under cover of darkness this morning and will be set up there in the course of the morning. Even the selection and felling of the tree was different this year than in the past. Representatives of the Tourismus+Congress GmbH Frankfurt am Main (TCF), who were usually present on site, experienced this 2020 only via video conference.

After its arrival in Frankfurt, the tree was erected around noon. Larger crowds of onlookers actually stayed away. However, this may also have been due to the fact that the erection dragged on for several hours. Even before the transport, but also during the erection, "Bertl" left a few branches. Its chocolate side is now facing Justitia, while the somewhat disheveled side is facing the rathaus. But with the help of some "cosmetic" interventions, the spruce should soon look beautiful all around.

Until then, the tree will have to rest for a bit before it will then be festively decorated and bring a little sparkle into this Christmas season - sparkle and hope for a better time, which we hope to experience already in the course of next year. We are looking forward to it and will of course keep you posted!
