Dresden Schwibbogen festival
The Schwibbogen candle arch is an unmistakable symbol of the historic market, visible from afar. With its carved motifs, the Schwibbogen recounts the everyday life of miners from the Ore Mountain region, from where it originates. On the third Sunday of Advent, we gather around the world’s largest walk-in Schwibbogen to celebrate the regional artisans, and to preserve their traditions and customs, which are brought to life in stories, songs and dances.
