In a few days it would have started: Then Frankfurt's city centre - and especially the Römerberg - would once again have been filled with festively lit stall magic, we would have seen shining children's eyes while merry-go-rounds spun to the sounds of "Weihnachtsbäckerei" or "Last Christmas", we would have had the smell of roasted almonds or hot chestnuts in our noses and the taste of comfortingly warming mulled wine on our lips. But we will unfortunately have to do without all that and the many other things that make up that very special, wonderful Christmas market feeling this year.
Not only in Frankfurt, but in most German cities, Christmas markets have been cancelled due to the high Corona infection figures, including Wiesbaden's Sternschnuppenmarkt, Nuremberg's Christkindlesmarkt, Rothenburg's Reiterlesmarkt or Lübeck's Christmas market. This renunciation hurts showmen and market visitors, but it is a necessary sacrifice that we have to make out of charity alone, in order to protect people for whom the corona virus can have serious or even life-threatening consequences. And that is exactly what the Christmas season should be about - charity.
Despite this: an Advent season completely without Christmas market, mulled wine, gingerbread and co.? Kind of unimaginable, right? We thought so too and have teamed up with renowned manufacturers from the region to bring you a piece of Christmas market feeling directly to your home.
