Augustusmarkt on Hauptstrasse

Ho-ho-ho without limits
Dresdeners on the right bank also know how to celebrate Christmas in style. The Augustusmarkt extends the full length of Hauptstrasse from the Goldener Reiter statue to the Dreikönigskirche. As you stroll along, you will find that different national influences come into play. Starting under the white-gold illuminated pagodas on Hauptstrasse and moving through the festively decorated Baroque quarter, you will encounter Danish Glögg, Finnish Piparkakut, Swedish Julskinha, Alsatian Bredele, Italian Pandoro and much more besides.
