Medieval-themed fair in the palace stable yard

Christmas in pewter and leather

It’s a spectacular sight. Within the walls of the Dresden Residenzschloss, craftsmen offer their wares for sale, jugglers and minstrels will take you on a journey through time – and then there’s the culinary delights. In addition to the unusual but delicious delicacies, there is a public bathhouse where up to eight people can enjoy a hot tub, even in the bitter cold.
