This beautifully detailed advent calendar depicts the Christmas Market (Weihnachtsmarkt) in Dresden, Germany. The historic buildings frosted with snow, including the Dresden Frauenkirche, frame the scene with a large Christmas tree in the center of the market. The windows and booths glow and the moon peeks out from behind the clouds in the night sky.
The detailed picture has 24 little doors to open. Each door has a little picture behind it. The tradition is to open one door each day from December 1 thru December 24. Children love to open a door a day as they count down to Christmas.
Does Not come with candy or chocolate and does NOT have glitter accents
