Christmas markets in Dresden

Visit one of the oldest Christmas markets in Germany

For many, Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year. Dresden has a number of Christmas markets that offer hours of fun. The whole city is beautifully illuminated. The star of the show is one of the oldest Christmas markets in Germany: the Dresdner Striezelmarkt on the Altmarkt. This Christmas market, with its huge Christmas tree, simply cannot be ignored. But the ten other markets that can be found around the city are worth a visit too, because each has its own character. All in all, the holiday season in Dresden is a unique experience not to be missed, and staying at the Bilderberg Bellevue Hotel will make your experience extra special.

 

Dresdner Stollenfest

If you happen to be in Dresden around Christmas, we definitely recommend you visit the Stollenfest. Join us as our magnificent city celebrates its favourite traditional cake with tens of thousands of guests from all over the world! The festival is full of fun ‘ingredients’ such as a giant Stollen, a colourful parade, Miss Stollen and hundreds of proud bakers and patisseries. The festival takes place annually on the Saturday before the 2nd day of Advent.

Delicacies and snacks at the Christmas market

In addition to the renowned Christmas stollen, there are plenty more things to enjoy at the Dresden Christmas markets. How about hot chocolate, delicious spices, roast almonds, game specialities, sausage and mulled wine? In other words: plenty of reasons to visit our Christmas markets.

 

Souvenirs

Of course, besides the traditional festivals, souvenirs are an excellent reason for visiting a Dresden Christmas market. There is a huge choice of beautifully painted mugs, for example. And there is also a large range of regional craftsmanship on offer. Looking for hand-made jewellery or candles? Then you have come to the right place.
