Frankfurt Christmas Market (Part 1)

On Sunday afternoon, we decided it would be a great way to end the long weekend by visiting the Christmas Market in town. With more than 200 beautifully decorated stalls, I decided to break my visits into separate weekends.

We were there for the wursts on Sunday. Wursts are sausages which are usually served in small, crusty bread rolls. I love the smell of properly barbecued meat!

I decided to have the chicken sausage which turned out to be really delicious.

Daniel got himself currywursts which also came with a small bread roll to soak up the sauce once he was done with the meat.

After filling our stomachs with these little treats, Daniel wanted some traditional mulled wine (Glühwein) to warm himself up. I’m not a fan of any sort of wine unless it’s used in cooking so I ordered good, old hot chocolate.

The wine costs €2,50 a cup and you’ll need to pay another €2,50 for a deposit which you’ll get back when you return the used mugs.

I’ve been on a search for roasted chestnuts and I’m so glad to have found them at the market.

These were properly roasted chestnuts. Their shells didn’t stick to the nuts inside which made eating really easy and delightful.

It was getting fairly crowded by early evening and we thought it wouldn’t be a good idea for me to be squashed among the crowd so we left. I was a little reluctant as there were still loads to see and more importantly, EAT! However as the market goes on till just before Christmas, I’m sure we’ll be back next weekend to savour more food. Believe it or not, I’ve got a list of foodie to try!
