The traditional Christmas Market in Dresden, with its romantic and festive charm, is an inspiration in itself, a real treasure trove for traditional handmade crafts. There is a little something for everyone: Christmas pyramids, smoking figures and candleholders from Erzgebirge Mountains, indigo-dyed printed textile products and pottery from Lusatia, gingerbread from Pulsnitz, filigree lace products from Plauen, Herrenhut Advent stars, blown glass tree decorations from Lauscha, and of course specialties from Dresden itself, such as the traditional “Pflaumentoffel,” a  chimneysweep figure made of dried prunes. Visitors can also watch the carvers, glass-blowers and bakers in action at the crafts market.
