Dresden: Dresden is situated in the south-eastern part of the Free State of Saxony and lies in a marked widening of the Elbe valley. It has a diverse festival culture that includes baroque celebrations dating back more than 400 years. Dresden is also home to the "Striezelmarkt", the oldest German Christmas market (founded in 1434). The abundance of woods and green spaces, such as the Grosser Garten, make Dresden one of the greenest cities in Europe.
