Visiting for a few days and wondering what and where to eat in Frankfurt?
The Kleinmarkthalle is a central, practical and colourful market that is open throughout the week and busiest on Saturdays.
There are market stalls, cafes and restaurants.
Frankfurters and tourists swarm the two-story covered market for fresh fish, sausages, salami, local meats, regional cheeses and fresh flowers.
There are also fruit, vegetables, breads, wines, desserts, rare spices, ingredients and delicacies from all over the world.
This Market Hall is where the smells and the sights of delicious food entice curiosity and appetite; there are nibbles, meals, and everything in between. Many of the stalls offer samples to try, like cheese or salami – it is all part of the atmosphere.
The Kleinmarkthalle was built in 1879 and destroyed in a massive air-raid in World War Two. It was rebuilt in the mid nineteen fifties and since then the European market experience, with a touch of international flavours, right in the middle of Frankfurt, has satisfied many stomachs.
During lunch, many office workers descend on Kleinmarkhalle because it also offers simple meals like sausages, schnitzel and pork belly with local salads; potato salad, sauerkraut.
