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.

As is perhaps suitable to Germany's oldest Christmas market, the Dresden Christmas market is the place to buy traditional toys, puppets, and wood carvings that are handcrafted in the German Ore Mountains. The focus is on historic traditions and quality items.
