Adventmarkets in Salzburg
Christmas Markets in the Salzkammergut Region
Advent plays an important roll in Austria’s annual event calendar. Of course you will find the Austrian’s hectically shopping for the last few presents or desperately combing the shops for the ideal gift. However, the Advent Markets throughout Austria give us the chance to stop for a while and enjoy this wonderful time of year taking time to meet friends if only just for an hour. Without these seasonal markets Christmas just wouldn’t be the same in Austria. Your guest card, which is free for all Stefanihof guests, gives you complimentary entry to the Christmas Market at Gut Aiderbichl.
All around Fuschl am See you can visit the wonderful Christmas Markets and enjoy the enchanting picture of Christmas lights of the villages of St. Wolfgang, St. Gilgen and Strobl reflected in the waters of Wolfgang Lake. A romantic boat ride on the lake will take you past the tiny illuminated islands of the Ochsenkreuz and the hochzeitkreuz below the might Falkenstein rock-face and onto the giant Advent Lantern floating off the shores of Strobl. Enjoy the warming taste of mulled wine, roasted chestnuts and gingerbread. Stroll past the stalls and the nativity scenes with real livestock and soak up the peaceful, pre-Christmas atmosphere so special to Austria.
Having returned from the markets you can then enjoy the peaceful and reflective mood of Christmas in Fuschl am See which is reflected in the Christmas celebrations at the Old Ruming Mill.
Why not spend a few days during Advent in Austria and enjoy the unique atmosphere, perhaps buy the odd handmade present and get yourself ready for the hectic Christmas celebrations back home.
