What to expect

The nicest time of the year begins in December when the Christmas season starts in Germany. This is a time of contemplation which is characterised by candle light and the smell of biscuits, frost patterns on windows, mysterious Christmas stories and crisp cold weather. German Christmas cake (Stollen), ginger bread, spiced biscuits, cinnamon stars and mulled wine are a definite must during this time of the year – and there is more than enough of all of this available in a large variety and in a good qualitiy at the Christmas markets.

Especially in Dresden you can find exceptional Christmas markets. Have you for example ever seen people taking a bath at a Christmas Market? If not, it is time to visit the medieval Christmas Market at Dresden Stallhof. Besides the bath house you can watch various craft men practising old traditional crafts like hatters, stone dresser and carvers. You should also not miss the famous Dresden Striezelmarkt. Enjoy a fascinating Advent Tour to Dresden and feel the Christmas magic!

During a FAM trip in November 2011 we ascended the dome of the Church of Our Lady in Dresden. What a great view over the roofs of the historic city centre and the Christmas Markets. I can definitely recommend including this to your visit in Dresden. But please plan enough time for this visit, because there are a lot of stairs to climb, partly a bit steep and narrow.
