This German advent calendar with glitter accents depicts the Frauenkirche, one of the most famous landmarks in Dresden, Germany at Christmas.

At the foot of the Frauenkirche is located a lively Christmas market, where the mouthwatering scent of roasted almonds, mulled wine & baked goods fills the air.
Windows of this calendar reveal other famous buildings & landmarks in Dresden.
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.
