Detailed Overview

Dresden’s Striezelmarkt, recognized as the oldest Christmas market in Germany, draws visitors not only for its historical significance but also for its remarkable attractions. Among them is the world’s tallest Ore Mountain step pyramid, towering at 14.61 meters, and what is likely the world’s largest walk-in candle arch. The market offers a daily program of cultural Christmas events catering to all ages. Additionally, the market features charming details like the Pflaumentoffel, a historically crafted edible figurine made from dried plums. While not grand in size, the traditional Ferris wheel adds a touch of romance, providing breathtaking aerial views of the meticulously adorned stalls at the Striezelmarkt.
