Dresden

Dresden, Germany

Dresden was never a city that spiked high on my Germany to-see list until I stumbled across it trying to find a midway point between Berlin and Prague on my mini-Europe adventure. A bit of research led me to the Striezelmarkt, which is one of the oldest and most traditional Christmas markets in Germany. That alone secured the city as a stop on my trip, but I absolutely fell in love with the place as I spent time exploring, and here are just a few of the many things I love about the city!

Trdelník – commonly found in Czech Republic, but we stumbled upon several stalls in Dresden that made these. And yes, they did all need to be sampled.
