Welcome to Striezelmarkt, one of Germany's oldest Christmas markets, which has the tallest Christmas pyramid in the world. Established in 1434 its name comes from Hefestriezel, renowned as the original Dresden Christstollen. Every year on the 3rd Saturday before Christmas a Stollen festival and grand festival parade are held in its honour. Traditional hand-crafted goods from Dresden and the surrounding region include pyramids, incense burners, decorative arches, pottery and hanging stars.
