Dresdner Stollen festival

Altmarkt Dresden und Innenstadt

The Stollen festival is an opportunity for Dresden’s bakers and pastry chefs to join hundreds of thousands of guests from all over the world in celebrating their Dresdner Christstollen® fruit cakes. For over 25 years, this has been the highlight of Dresden’s Stollen season. The Stollenfest begins at the stage in front of the "Kulturpalast" at 9.30am with a procession through the baroque old town. This is followed by the cutting of the giant Stollen by the ‘master baker of the royal court’ and the Dresden Stollenmädchen (‘Stollen maiden’). A ceremonious stage programme, prominent guests, and the colourful procession featuring more than 500 participants create a unique atmosphere for a festival like no other.
