The Christmas Market in Frankfurt has a strong tradition. It goes all the way back to 1393 when it was first referenced in official documents. In 1498 the market was the marriage zone for Wilhelm of Hesse and the daughter of Prince of Palatinate and this event was glorified with a massive entourage of horses. The enthusiasm of this market has carried on all the way till today.
