Seiffen: Christmas Village
Seiffen offers a real Christmas in Germany. Seiffen’s Christmas village is the official Christmas village in Germany. Seiffen is located in the south of Dresden, in the Ore Mountain area, in the German Erzgebirge Mountains, near the border of the Czech Republic. Many wooden candle pyramids, angels, nutcrackers, candlesticks, and toys related to Christmas are produced in Seiffen. Erzgebirge handicraft traditions, with Christmas themes, have become the most important source of income for the village. During the Christmas season, candles beautifully illuminate the streets of Seiffen, and the traditional wooden handicrafts are sold in the workshops.
