Dated back to 1434 the first Dresdner “Striezelmarkt,” as so called
“Weihnachtsmarkt,” was opened as street market.
These markets are open during the December months in German cities as well as Austria and Switzerland. Traditionally held in the town square, the market has food, drinks, and seasonal items from open-air stalls accompanied by traditional singing. Popular attractions at the markets include the Nativity Scene, Nussknacker (carved nutcrackers), Gebrannte Mandeln (candied, toasted almonds), traditional Christmas cookies such as Lebkuchen, and Magenbrot (both forms of soft gingerbread) and Printen.
Bratwurst, and for many visitors one of the highlights of the market: Glühwein, hot mulled wine (with or without a shot of brandy), or Eierpunsch (an egg-based warm alcoholic drink help stave off the cold winter air which sometimes dips below freezing. More regional food specialties include Christstollen (Stollen), a sort of bread with candied fruit and hot Apfelwein (apple cider) come from different areas in Germany.
