Eating & drinking

Whether it be Christmas cookies or glazed apples, Kräppelchen doughnuts or Glühwein (mulled wine), Dresden’s Striezelmarkt boasts a wide range of culinary delights for every visitor.

The name ‘Striezel’ dates back to the delicious bakery item that is today world renowned as the ‘Dresdner Christstollen’. ‘Strutzel’ or ‘Striezel’ was the Middle High German word for a Danish pastry with an elongated, sometimes even braided shape. It was probably designed to look like the swaddled child from the Christian Nativity story.
