Advent on Neumarkt.

Like a trip on a time machine
In front of the famous Frauenkirche, you can observe the historic craftsmanship of the guilds: bell founders, sign writers, bag makers, engravers, watchmakers… Visit the chocolatier, discover handmade toys – and let classic Dresden Christmas treats melt on your tongue while church choirs and street singers conjure up the right festive mood.
