Christmas Market in Dresden (Hefestriezel Weihnachtsmarkt) is known as the oldest market in Germany. Dresden is located in the center of East Germany. It started in 1,434 and since, it is held continuously during Advent. (In the Christian calendar, the first season of the church year, a period of preparation for the birth of Jesus. Advent begins on the Sunday nearest to November 30 and continues until Christmas).

The local Christmas market is also called Hefestriezel as the local traditional sweet. In addition to selling presents for the holiday, hand crafts and decoration for the Christmas tree the visitors can enjoy the holiday music that is heard all over the place. Dresden market, contrary to other markets in Germany, holds two festivals.

On the Christmas Market days accommodations can be fully booked hence it is recommended to make a room's reservations in advance in order to find a room in a reasonable price.

On Saturday before the second Sunday of Advent, Stollen Festival takes place. Stollen is traditional bread which is eaten in Christmas. It was baked for the first time in 1450. The second festival which is called Pyramid Festival is held on Saturday before the third Sunday of Advent.

Germany background and overview:
As Europe's largest economy and second most populous nation, Germany remains a key member of the continent's economic, political, and defense organizations. European power struggles immersed Germany in two devastating World Wars in the first half of the 20th century and left the country occupied by the victorious Allied powers of the US, UK, France, and the Soviet Union in 1945. With the advent of the Cold War, two German states were formed in 1949: the western Federal Republic of Germany (FRG) and the eastern German Democratic Republic (GDR). The democratic FRG embedded itself in key Western economic and security organizations, the EC, which became the EU, and NATO, while the Communist GDR was on the front line of the Soviet-led Warsaw Pact. The decline of the USSR and the end of the Cold War allowed for German unification in 1990. Since then, Germany has expended considerable funds to bring Eastern productivity and wages up to Western standards. In January 1999, Germany and 10 other EU countries introduced a common European exchange currency, the euro.
