It's official: The Christmas season has opened. Not because, after Lebkuchen and Spekulatius, the first chocolate Santa Clauses and festive decorations are already available in the shops. And not only because the Frankfurt Christmas tree has arrived on the Römer. No, there is another good reason to get into a festive mood from now on: The CityXmas! Two years ago Frankfurt's earliest and highest Christmas market took place on the roof of the Konstabler Parkhaus for the first time. The debut was enormously successful and was very well received by the visitors.
There was a continuation of course quickly decided thing. Since November 1st this beautiful hut magic goes into its third round and invites you to relax and enjoy - the perfect location for pre-Christmas after work and weekend excursions. In connection with the CityAlm, the twelve huts radiate an almost rural charm that stands in stark contrast to the skyline in the background. But that's exactly why the concept works so well. The atmosphere here is sociable and almost familiar. The fact that almost all the stall operators were present last year also bears witness to this. There are only two newcomers this season: A stall that offers incredibly delicious Belgian waffles in heartier flavours - with salmon or mozzarella, for example - or in sweet variations, for example with cherries or - THE highlight for children - with smarties. And another hut where Langosch is served to the visitors.
But there is also the very tasty Pulled Pork Burger from Big Al`s Smoke Truck, which really melts on the tongue and tickles the taste buds pleasantly. But also the spicy Feuerwurst from the grill hut, crispy thin Flammkuchen, hearty soups, chips with Jalapeños, burgers or sweet Crêpes satisfy every hunger here. Of course you shouldn't miss Glühwein, hot Äppler, all variants Shot-Upgrades, children's punch and other warm or cold drinks.
In the wonderful glow of lights the CityXmas Christmas Market is an almost magical place, which radiates a pleasant cosiness even in not so nice weather and low temperatures. You reach the market via the Konstablerwache car park entrance at Carl-Theodor-Reiffenstein-Platz. By elevator or car you have to go to parking deck 5. From there the big staircase leads you to the CityAlm. This is located on the roof of the multi-storey car park until March 2020. The winter alpine hut serves rustic food ranging from Alm-Öhi's Käsespätzle and Alm-Burger to grilled chicken or grandfather's bread salad. In addition there is freshly tapped beer from the barrel and from Thursday to Saturday from 22 o'clock the big hut fun is celebrated. More information about this Rooftop-Location can be found HERE
