Dresdner Christstollen is an integral part of the history of Dresden, the city of culture. The traditional Dresden cake has played an eminent role in all epochs of the city’s history, for kings and princes as well as for Dresden’s citizens. Only superior, high-quality raw materials and select ingredients are used. Some of Dresden’s bakeries and confectioneries allow interested visitors to look behind the scenes of the local Stollen trade. Dresden’s visitor bakeries do not just provide information about the great traditional history of Original Dresdner Christstollen, they also share little private stories around Dresden’s traditional pastry. The Dresden Stollen seal – a golden oval sticker with the raised likeness of Saxony’s most famous ruler, Augustus the Strong – is used by Stollenschutzverband e.V. to guarantee that a product meets the certified, steady high quality of Dresdner Christstollen.
