Description

One of the most spectacular Christmas festivals awaits you in the heart of Germany. Every year since 1994, this spectacular event has promoted Dresden's most well-known proprietary article - the Dresden Stollen. The highlight of the festival is the baking the giant cake weighing 3 to 4 tons and the accompanying traditional procession of Dresden bakers and pastry chefs through the city’s baroque Altstadt (Old Town). At the Striezelmarkt, the huge cake is cut and served to the immense crowd of locals and tourists. During the first festival in 1994, the finished stollen weighed 2,720 kilograms, a world record, so make sure you go to Dresden with a big appetite.
