Christmas in Elbland

Christmas Market Radebeul

A bit of peace and quiet
Here, the hustle and bustle of the city centre seems very distant. Twinkling lights and fascinating stalls are the hallmarks of this convivial and elegant Christmas market. The sight of craftsmen and women demonstrating their skills in making seasonal gifts and of the lights strung out between the stalls generates anticipation of the Christmas celebrations to come: a contemplative and intimate fairy-tale world such as is rarely encountered nowadays.
