Christmas market on Prager Strasse

Star of the South
It is the shining southern gateway to the Christmas markets that are strung out like a pearl necklace through the centre of the city. This Christmas market on Dresden’s most important shopping thoroughfare was renamed “Dresdner Winterlichter” (Dresden Winter Lights) in 2012. Encounter regional specialities – and a glittering festival of light. Every evening, the 15-metre-tall Christmas tree is magically illuminated, and festive music rings out. There are two historic carousels and sweet delights for the little ones.
