Dresden Striezelmarkt

The original Christmas market

Glittering lights, sparkling stars, looks of sheer delight on the faces of the children, mulled wine, the aroma of ginger bread and Christmas carols: the 589nd Dresdner Striezelmarkt is the oldest Christmas market in Germany as well as the senior one in Dresden. Simply stroll around at your own pace, sampling the local refreshments and looking for gifts to buy at the various stalls: Erzgebirge carved figures, Lausitzer Blaudruck cloth and Herrnhut Stars. And of course, a slice of original Dresdner Christstollen consumed next to the brightly lit, supersize Erzgebirge pyramid.
