Dresden is always worth a visit, no matter which season of the year. But in winter, the beautiful city on the Elbe transforms into a magical Christmas world. It shines and glitters everywhere and will make you shine. Take a winter stroll in a dreamlike setting in Schloss & Park Pillnitz, which in winter turns into a glowing fairytale landscape with the magical Christmas Garden Dresden. On the first Christmas day you will undertake a romantic excursion to Meissen and Moritzburg, where you will follow in the footsteps of the TV classic "Three hazelnuts for Cinderella". We wish you a Merry Christmas in magical Dresden!
