    Euro-Spät-Kauf in Dredsen: Every day Shopping for food

    by globetrott Updated Jan 7, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Euro-Spät-Kauf is a supermarket in Postplatz in Dresden and the best about it is the fact that it is open also on sundays and holidays and opens already rather early in the morning !
    Prices are maybe 5% higher than in other supermarkets, but that is not really bad, when you considder that travellers pay a lot more at the trainstations.
    mmm mmm mmm mmm mmm mmm mmm
    The shop is open :
    Monday - Friday : 06.00a.m. - 09.00p.m.
    Saturday: 08.00a.m. - 08.00p.m.
    Sunday: 09.00a.m. - 08.00p.m.

    What to buy: You may get everything there like in any supermarket AND they also have a small bakery there with fresh cakes and rolls and they serve coffee !

    In the same building you have a Kebap-stand, a beergarden around the corner and a stand with roasted chicken to take away.

    THIS is certainly a perfect place for tourists on a budget !!

    What to pay: Half a roasted chicken is just 2 €uros to take away, half a litre Buttermilk is about 1 €uro

    Weihnachtspyramiden aus dem Erzgebirge

    by globetrott Written Jan 6, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    On my picture you may see a typical kind of "Weihnachtspyramide" that will mostly follow a very simple technique :
    Lots of candles that are lighted around the pyramid will have a lot of hot air streaming up to the wind-wheel on top and this windwheel will turn around the small figures in circles around the axle in the centre of the X-mas-pyramid.

    b.t.w. the pyramid shown on my picture is with a height of about 7 meters the biggest one I have ever seen and it is shown inside the new townhall of Dresden.
    It is lighted by electricity and also the figures are moved by electricity...

    What to buy: Such pyramids in much smaller size make a perfect souvenir from Saxony and are equally liked by children and elderly people, who might even still remember to have seen such people, working-tools and costumes in their own childhood...

    What to pay: The price will depend on size and quality

    Cafe Zieger in Meissen: Get a Fummel in Meissen

    by globetrott Updated Jan 6, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Only in Meissen you may buy a funny traditional pastry, called FUMMEL and this kind of pastry has an interesting story behind it:
    August der Starke had a post-rider, who was drinking quite a lot, and in order to control him , he asked the bakeries in Meissen to create a very thin pastry that might easily break, when it is not carried carefully...

    You may still buy this pastry ONLY in Konditorei Zieger for about 2 Euros, it is big like a loaf of bread, but very light and really thin ( & it survived several days in my car)
    Have a look on my picture-combination - the one on the left was digitally made smaller and I could not restist to make a hole in order to see how thin it is...

    It is a funny souvenir, BUT I would NOT recommend it for a great taste , it actually tastes like nothing !

    In colloquial german a Fummel is a kind of dress for ladies that is expensive and rather thin, and might be ruined quickly...
    Fummeln or herumfummeln in colloquial german is an activity, when touching something with your fingers....

    What to buy: Buy a FUMMEL, keep it at home & you may read the story of it on the paper-bag of the Konditorei Zieger

    What to pay: A Fummel costs 2 Euros ( 2004)

    What to buy: "Knusperflocken" are something very special! They were invented in the GDR and consist of whole milk chocolate with crisp bread cumbs and rusks! You cannot buy this kind of sweets in the western part of the country, so look out for Knusperflocken while in Saxony!

    local shops: buy local products

    by richiecdisc Written Mar 13, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The towns of the Erzgebirge all have shops selling local handcrafts. This area is renowned for its wooden Christmas figures. There is a trend towards cheap foreign versions of these products and though the prices are lower, so is the quality. If you have the money, buy the locally produced ones. It helps the local economy and keeps traditions alive too.

    What to buy: Nutcacker men and pyramids are two of the more popular items to buy in the Erzgebirge.

    What to pay: A small but nice pyramid cost around $50 and the nutcrackers can be as little as $7 for a very small one but expect to pay about $30 for something of fair size and quality.
