Dresden’s Christmas Market (known locally as Striezelmarkt) is Germany’s oldest Christmas Market, dating back to 1434. The main Christmas market is located in the city centre in Altmarkt Square, however it is surrounded by several themed Christmas Markets.

The main Christmas Market is surreal and authentic. You will find every type of present here, from real traditional handmade crafts from around the region such as Christmas pyramids, indigo-dyed printed textile products, smoking figures and candleholders, pottery, gingerbread, blown glass tree decorations, filigree lace products, traditional Advent stars and of course specialities from Dresden itself.

The main attractions of the Christmas Market are the world’s tallest Christmas pyramid, 14 metres in height and the world’s biggest nut cracker. The culinary attraction of the market, however, is the Dresden Christstollen, originally known as ‘Striezel’, which accounts for the market’s name.
