Stollen – German Christmas cake, cooked with the addition of large amounts of raisins and candied fruits, and sprinkled with powdered sugar.
The most famous Stollen – Dresden Stollen, which has long history and its own Stollenfest: costumed parade, visited by thousands of visitors.
Through the historic center of Dresden in a large wagon they bring a huge Stollen with weight of several tons. The parade of more than 500 participants goes to Striezelmarkt Square, where a giant Stollen is cut into thousands of small pieces with the special huge knife Stollen (1.6 m in length!) and sold to the guests of the festival.
