Witnessing this grandeur is easy when you book early with Perth Cheap Flights. The first Munich Christmas market was held in 1642. Back then, it was known for its manger figurines, gingerbread, and chimney sweeps comprised of almonds and plums. Munich's Christmas market today showcases more than 160 traditionally-designed booths, and the event is a cool place to shop for Bavarian wooden carvings, glass crystals and toys. Dresden is known to have the oldest Christmas market in Germany. The first Dresden Christmas market occurred in 1434. The traditional name of Dresden's fair is "Striezel Markt" which refers to a sweet Christmas cake called "Stollen" or "Striezl". This fruitcake, topped with raisins, almond nuts, spices and filled with icing sugar, is the food highlight of the Dresden Christmas market. Experiencing all these fun and memorable holiday escapades is a breeze with Perth Cheap Flights that offer travelers the best deals and accommodations in their vacation getaways.
