A German Christmas market in Dresden | DW Documentary

Channel: DW Documentary

Conjuring up the perfect Christmas spirit is hard work for those working at Dresden's Striezelmarkt Christmas market. Then there are all the concerns about security.

Fairy tale houses, bakeries, handicrafts, mulled wine and the Dresden fruitcake now known as Stollen, once called Striezel, from which the market gets its name - with more than 230 booths, it's easy to get into the Yuletide spirit. And that's what visitors do, despite tightened security since the terrorist attack in Berlin two years ago. Concrete bollards, barriers and large water containers are meant to provide security. There are more police patrolling the streets than in the past. It's a new normality, and many people still have to get used to it. A Report by Thomas Gill.
