Kaiserburg Castle, Nuremberg

Nuremberg Castle, where every emperor of the Holy Roman Empire lived, at least for a time, between 1050 and 1571, is one of the most important medieval imperial palaces. Friedrich Barbarossa and his successors added large extensions to the Salian royal castle which had been in existence since around the mid 11th century. The double chapel, which has survived intact to this day, dates back to this time. The imperial apartments and state rooms in the main building, whose original panelling has largely been preserved, contain 16th and 17th century paintings, tapestries and furniture.

Christmas Striezelmarkt in Dresden

Welcome to one of the oldest and largest Christmas market in Germany, the Dresden Streizelmarkt, named after the original Dresden Christmas stollen, the Strietzel. The market is ceremoniously opened with the turning on of the world’s largest Christmas pyramid, standing at 14m, and the cutting of the stollen. Numerous other highlights await: the Pflaumentoffelhaus, the Knusperhaus, the fairytale house, the Christmas bakery, the elf cinema, the puppet theatre near the Advent calendar and the crowning of the Gingerbread Princess. A feast for the eyes and ears are the many Christmas music and dance performances. Especially eventful are the multiple festivals before Christmas: the stollen festival, during which a giant stollen is carried from the Zwinger to the Striezelmarkt, where it is ceremoniously cut and shared out, Pflaumentoffelfest, the gingerbread festival, the pyramid festival and the traditional Saxon Bergmann’s Christmas.
