The balcony was covered with Christmas decorations - including this deer.
We then decided to go for a wander around the area. There were streets filled with bars, cafes and delicatessens.
I got some great shots while the sun was rising.
Such beautiful architecture.
I then went back to the hotel and bundled up for the winter weather - BRING IT ON, WINTER!
We went to the local Christmas market and had bratwurst hot dogs and fries for lunch - delicious!
After experiencing some of the winter chill, I thought it appropriate that I enjoy some mulled wine - aka gluhwein. It was a bit too sweet, but good nonetheless.
We went to a beautiful little restaurant outside the Alte Oper Frankfurt building for dinner. This very quaint little place with lovely staff and delicious food and wine. We shared a bottle of red wine over wild boar then wandered back to the hotel in the freshly falling snow.
