Dear DresdenWalks guests!

The time has come again: The famous and oldest Christmas market in Germany (called the Striezelmarkt) takes place 26th November to 24th December in Dresden. On the Dresden Old Market (Altmarkt) you will witness pottery, Ore Mountains folk art, bakery trade with Dresden stollen bakery at first hand! For the first time a walkable candle arch, which is unique in the world, will welcome the visitors. Also the biggest Christmas pyramid of the world is going to amaze you.

Do not miss the 16th Dresden stollen party on 5th December 2009. The baking of the Dresden Giant Stollen for the party (Start 10.30 a.m. on the Schlossplatz) is running on full speed. In almost 140 bakeries and pastry shops the ovens are on heat day and night in order to prepare the necessary 200 pieces of stollen plates each weighing 8 kilograms.

And so DresdenWalks at that time enriches its usual tours with stories about Christmas in and around Dresden. On top of that you will get a small Christmas surprise.
