As what is arguably the best time of year approaches, when the days get shorter, the secret Santas begin, and the pre-Christmas magic gradually spreads through families and the city, we invite you to take a relaxed stroll through the Traditional Christmas Market at the Frauenkirche from late November to Christmas Eve.
A mix of roasted almonds, gingerbread, stuffed baked apples, marzipan, waffles, and of course the traditional Dresdner Christstollen® fruit cake bewitches the senses. Intoxicated by the pleasant aromas, people wander down the historic laneway, constantly stumbling across something new to admire. The romantically decorated stalls and Christmas chimes create an incomparable Advent atmosphere.
The view from Brühl’s Terrace over Münzgasse, with its beautifully illuminated Christmas decorations, and out as far as the giant pyramid and Frauenkirche, is equally unique. Take a bit of time to explore the Christmas city of Dresden; allow yourself an extra day to enjoy it in all its glory.
