Dresden Streizelmarkt

The sweet smell of roasted almonds, warmth of a mug of glühwein cupped between your hands, mixed with light snow and good company is how I will remember the Dresden Streizelmarkt. This Christmas Market (Weihnachtsmarkt) is the most famous and oldest one in Germany, 2013 being its 579th year. The backdrop of Dresden’s baroque quarter added to its wintery, christmas charm.
