Marvel at the world's biggest Christmas pyramid
Tradition comes to life at Dresden’s Striezelmarkt. Established in 1434, its name comes from Hefestriezel, better known as the original Dresden Christstollen. Every year, the Stollen Festival and grand parade are held in honour of this famous seasonal cake. The stalls are a treasure trove of local arts and crafts: carved wooden items from the Erzgebirge mountains, blue printed items and pottery from Lusatia, gingerbread from Pulsnitz, intricate hand-made lace from Plauen and hanging stars from Herrnhut. At the heart of proceedings is the world’s largest Christmas pyramid in the Erzgebirge style (14 metres), which provides the setting for the pyramid festival, a singing contest with a seasonal twist.
