Weekend in Dresden

Hello. I will be in dresden the first weekend of December. I have very limited time but would like suggestions on what I should visit. Very interested in art, local churches and Christmas markets, but please do not feel limited by these guidelines. Thanks!

What James said! Google all the names and you'll get info in English. Correction: a quick search found lots of references but no English translations. I think they're someplace, though. The Green Vault is called "Das Gruene Gewoelbe" in German and there are two, the new one and the historic one, with separate entrance tickets. Also, from what I remember, they are timed advance tickets, but if you go early you can get a ticket for that day. Maybe, it being December, it wont be so crowded. If you go to this website and go to "webcam" on the left, there are three of them. The third one shows the Christmas market.
