Dresdner Striezelmarkt was founded in 1434, making it one of Germany's oldest Christmas Markets. The name (Striezel) derives from a local fruit cake that was traditionally sold at the market, and is now better known as Stollen. The market takes...more
This is by far the best Christmas market we went to in Germany! I took a road trip over the holidays with some friends and this was one of our first stops. It felt unique to the rest of the markets you'll find in Germany...More
We patronized 2 stalls and both stalls harboured staff who were inclined to be culturally selective. At one stall we ordered bratwurst, sauerkraut in bun and pizza-like bread. 2 staff attended to us and they were business-like while a third stood in the background sizing...More
We traveled to Dresden, Prague, Vienna and Budapest for Christmas Markets. Dresden's markets were, by far, the best decorated, most original stalls that we saw. The atmosphere was festive and there was a large variety of food choices. While it was crowded, it was fun...More
This is one of the best Christmas Market we ever visited. There is a huge variety of food and booths to buy presents. The view of the market from the building in front is gorgeous and you can't miss it.
Having also frequented the Christmas markets in Berlin and Prague, all four members of our family (including a 9yo girl and 6yo boy) voted Dresden's Striezelmarkt as the best one we went to. Quite a large market, filling the Altmarkt Square, and boasting a healthy...More

Having been to Vienna, Salzburg, Prague, Cesky Krumlov Christmas markets, I can say with some assurance that this one is the best. People are relatively friendly, food is good, Gluhwine and Gluhbier are excellent. It is decorated beautifully and has puppet shows and live entertainers...More

Steve, We flew Dublin to Frankfurt to Dresden, and Munich on the way back. That time of year can be bad weather. Flight delays. Dresden has a nice little airport. Taxi stand outside. Lufthansa both flights. Prices were not that bad, as so many people go to the Christmas Market. Friday night and Saturday night get very very busy. Tough to move around. So plan accordingly. Several markets in the city too.

Hi, I bought a miniature Christmas carousel from a permanent shop in the mall adjacent to the Striezelmarkt in the main square. I am assuming this shop stays open all year round and that you will find your manger scenes... More
