That time of the year again! Around November, the Christmas spirit takes over the city. The Christmas markets take place in Altmarkt, one of the busiest squares during the festive season. The Striezelmarkt started in the 15th century and “Striezel” refers to a cake made at Christmas called “Stollen”. Every weekend of Advent, the market dedicates them to the traditions of the area. Many other markets take place in Dresden like the one near the Frauenkirche, the one in Neumarkt or The Winter Lights Market near the main railway station, in one of the most popular shopping streets, featuring a 50 feet (15m) Christmas tree. Try some regional food, buy some Christmas decorations, traditional handcrafts and take a sip of glühwein (mulled wine) to fight the cold weather with a bite of Christstollen, the famous fruity bread with nuts and spices!
Although Dresden is called Florence on the Elbe it is also known as Jewel Box, a nickname coming from its architectural gems.

Saxon cuisine is well known for hearty meat-based dishes but when it comes to treats, the sweet bites will also make you dream of them all day long.

The Quarkkeulchen can be served both sweet and savoury, with curd cheese, boiled potatoes and raisins.
