Striezelmarkt dates 2022
The 588th Dresden Striezelmarkt will be held at Dresden’s Altmarkt from 23 November to 24 December.
What makes the Striezelmarkt unique?
Dresden’s Striezelmarkt is considered to be the oldest Christmas market in Germany. But it’s not just its record age that attracts visitors; it also boasts other outstanding features, such as the world’s tallest, 14.61-metre-high Ore Mountain step pyramid, what is likely to be the world’s largest walk-in candle arch, and a daily programme of cultural Christmas events for young and old. Equally irresistible, however, are Striezelmarkt’s premium little touches, like the Pflaumentoffel, a very historic handcrafted edible figurine made from dried plums. Not especially large, but all the more romantic, is the traditional Ferris wheel which provides fantastic aerial views of the Striezelmarkt’s meticulously adorned stalls.
