There are a myriad of fantastic places in Germany to get into the Christmas spirit. No news there. However, if you want to get to the root of things, the neighbouring regions of Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt and Thuringia are the place to go. Christmas decorations, the tradition of public Christmas trees and not to forget the stollen Christmas cake all originated here. Add to that Germany’s oldest Christmas market in Dresden, and this special German festive cocktail is complete.
