Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt and Thuringia Shopping

Dresden's Striezelmarkt

  • Food/Candy

Updated 11/07/2013

Fodor's Review

Dating to 1434, this market was named after the city's famous Stollen, a buttery Christmas fruitcake often made with marzipan and sprinkled with powdered sugar. The market hosts a festival in its honor, complete with a 9,000-pound cake, on the Saturday of the second weekend of Advent. Traditional wooden toys produced in the nearby Erzgebirge mountains are the other major draw.
