Twinkling lights, shimmering stars. In December, a sea of lights dominates streets and squares, where a dozen of Christmas markets transform Dresden into the Christmas capital.
The biggest of all Christmas markets, the Dresdner Striezelmarkt, is with its 583rd edition a crowd puller.
On the Dresden Striezelmarkt you will find the traditional pyramids, beautiful handmade wooden figures, and the famous Dresdner Pflaumentoffel.
The highlight event is the Dresdner Stollenfest on the 9th of December. After the colorful parade through the historical Old Town, a giant stollen, is cut into thousands of pieces by the royal master baker and eaten by the thousands of guests.
