In the center of the Dresden (Dresden vacation rentals | Dresden travel guide) Christmas market, the oldest Christmas market in Germany, you will find the world's biggest nutcracker and a huge Christmas pyramid, a 45 feet high wooden carousel with life—sized angels and scenes from the nativity. For a great view of the Dresden Christmas market, climb to one of the upper levels of the Christmas pyramid.
