Winter magic at Frankfurt Airport: enjoy the Christmas season with festive events, music and activities


Frankfurt Airport has decked the halls of its passenger terminals with thousands of lights, Christmas trees and seasonal decorations – transforming the airport into a joyful winter wonderland.  During the coming weeks, Frankfurt Airport will be celebrating the festive season with magical events, activities and music for passengers and visitors.  The airport’s marketplaces and shops are filled with treasures and other gift ideas, while cafes and restaurants are serving up tasty holiday treats and drinks to get passengers into the Christmas spirit.

Special events include music from the singing Christmas angels who will provide a serene holiday feeling in the busy airport terminals.  From November 30 to December 23, the angels will sing popular Christmas carols at various locations in the departures halls.  On December 9, Lufthansa’s “Angels on Air” choir will present the most beautiful Christmas classics in Terminal 1’s Pier A-Plus at the atrium on Level 2 – with 45-minute concerts at 10:00, 13:00 and 15:00.

On December 7 and 11, passengers will be able to capture memorable moments with St. Nicholas and angels in front of a Christmas photo wall. Pictures will be printed out for travelers to take home as a souvenir for loved ones.

It does not always have to be a turkey with the trimmings for the holidays. Instead, from December 18 to 20 Frankfurt Airport staff will distribute Christmas rubber ducks to passengers, as part of a holiday photo contest. Passengers can participate by taking amusing pictures with their rubber duck and send them to  The three most creative Christmas photo entries will each win a camera.

The festive cheer will also be present at the Heinemann Duty Free & Travel Value Shop at Pier A:  Special guest and famous star chef Johann Lafer will create exquisite Christmas truffle specialties, which passengers can sample.  Lafer’s mouth-watering chocolate truffle show will take place on November 26 from 14:00 to 16:00, on December 10 from 11:00 to 13:00, and on December 16 from 15:00 to 17:00.

On Sunday, December 13, Fraport will be presenting its last AirXperience Day of 2015, under the theme “Star Hunters – New Worlds, Distant Galaxies”.  Throughout the passenger terminals, passengers and visitors will gain insights into the phenomena of space and our sparkling universe.  Frankfurt Airport is pleased to be cooperating with the European Space Agency (ESA) in presenting this day of “universal excitement”. The ESA’s European Space Operations Centre is located in the nearby science city of Darmstadt, south of Frankfurt.  AirXperience Day will also include many activities and events in anticipation of “The Force Awakens”, the new Star Wars film opening on December 17 at theaters in Germany.  More information about FRA’s AirXperience Days can be found on the Frankfurt Airport website.

Visitors can also celebrate the Christmas feeling outdoors at FRA when the Coca-Cola Christmas Truck arrives on December 13 to offer its entertaining stage program and various join-in activities with the Coca-Cola team and Santa Claus.  It’s only a short walk to the Coca-Cola Christmas Truck, which will be parked from 14:30 to 19:30 at the P36 bus parking area opposite Arrivals Hall C (ground level).
