The Concept

For people from all over the world – lets come together, so no one has to celebrate Christmas alone.

In 2008 the idea of the X-Mas Tram was born. For the first time students of all nationalities were invited to a Christmas tram ride of a very special kind, because they had to celebrate Christmas alone in a new city in a foreign country instead of celebrating with their families or friends. No one in Dresden has to celebrate Christmas alone.

During an intercultural tram ride through the illuminated city of Dresden and a festive stay at the Dresden Tram Museum, contacts are made between people that are new in Dresden like the foreign students and German families. Very important for that is the Christmas buddy program. Beside the buddy program there is always a culture program too. We present some typical German Christmas traditions. Stollen, ginger bread, Glühwein and Christmas songs are just a view examples.
