  • Striezelmarkt

A new experience of an old tradition

Christmas is one of the most important times of the year for Dresden and the surrounding region. Given the coronavirus pandemic, there is naturally a particularly strong focus on the Striezelmarkt, as Germany’s oldest Christmas market. The City of Dresden is currently working on concepts to find ways of enabling the market to go ahead with relevant restrictions. More information will be available here as soon as decisions have been made.
