Hotels in Dresden

From 24th November to 24th December 2016


If you like Christmas, you’ll love Dresden. A grand total of eleven completely different Christmas markets, from the by no means Dark Ages to the après ski charm of alpine huts, makes for wonderfully conflicting decisions.

Holiday sounds fill the air throughout the city. From the many oratorios, Advent, organ and gospel concerts, Dresden’s churches brim with festive insider tips.


The heart of this magical place is the Striezelmarkt, one of the largest German Christmas markets. It is also the oldest, having been established in 1434. This market boasts the world´s largest Erzgebirge wooden pyramid and a candle arch you can actually walk across.


A grand total of eleven completely different Christmas Markets in Dresden can make the decision of which Christmas Market to visit a delightfully conflicting choice. Each of them feature their own intimate flair, such as the charming medieval market in the stable yards at the Residenzschloss or the famous Frauenkirche. For a few glorious hours, just go with the flow and immerse yourself in the Christmas spirit. If you like Christmas, you’ll love Dresden. (© Dresden & Germany Travel)
