Dresden's Christstollen Bakery in Germany

Be sure to save your dollars and visit Dresden, Germany around Christmas Holidays. There are so many fun activities to do in this city with holiday traditions that sits next to the Elbe River.

I will always remember relaxing and sipping freshly brewed hot tea with a plate of this delicious Stollen German bread (Christmas cake) in front me after our tour of the bakery.  My month still waters for the tastes of this baking tradition of Dresden's Christstollen. Yum!

Do you think this baker will miss one of the loaves behind him? 

This was a fun tour going inside this bakery (Bäckerei) of which our local guide translated the demonstration.

Frankfurt, Germany



I love this picture from Frankfurt, Germany with both flags, city and country. Frankfurt is a fun place to start your overseas trip.  I enjoy Frankfurt because it is a mixture of (of course) a modern day city with an old world charm - this makes it easy for me to make the adjustment and transition after a long flight before I start my vacation.  I use these modern day amenities (food, banks, and shopping) while I get ready for the rest of my trip.

Frankfurt also conveniently serves as a transportation hub for Germany with air, rail, and other  transport ways. 

What do you like about Frankfurt, Germany?

Berlin, Germany and the Berlin Bears

Even the Berlin Bears need rain gear! 

I love stuff Teddy Bears and I found a very close connection when I was in Berlin on my Germany trip.  Not far away from Brandenburg Gate I was welcomed by this fun Berlin Bear.  They are ambassadors promoting tolerance and living together in peace all over the world now. 


Even the Berlin Bears need rain gear!

"The bear has become the symbol of Berlin. Especially the Berlin Buddy Bears. People find all over Berlin. Buddy Bears are  colorful, cheerful bears with their arms stretched up high. They have become Berlin's symbol for tolerance and "Weltoffenheit" (world openness)." description from Wikipedia

With the Buddy Bears, the centuries-old heraldic animal of Berlin took on a new shape and adopted a new role: The bears are a cheerful welcome for Berliners and their guests as well as ambassadors promoting tolerance and living together in peace all over the world.

Additional historic information is found at The Bear - the Symbol of Berlin.


Travel tip: Buy Berlin Bear charms and make fabulous earrings and jewelry!
