The glow of lights, the fragrance of mulled wine and Christmas tunes fill the city centre: the Dresden Striezelmarkt, Germany's oldest Christmas Market, is again opening its gates. Over 200 stallholders sell handicrafts from the Erzgebirge (Ore Mountains), Christmas decorations, toys and, of course, the world-famous Dresden Christstollen (fruitcake) from their fancifully decorated chalets. Numerous special highlights and the children's fun area with Christmas bakery will entice you and your family into a fascinating Christmas wonderland.
