Advent in Salzburg:
the romantic historic district in winter
Everything turns white as Advent approaches: for many, the most beautiful time of the year. While some wax their skis and head for the mountains, others look forward to more peaceful activities. From here in Eugendorf, both options are open to you: The mountains begin right here, while Salzburg City, a veritable bastion of Christmas markets, is also there at your doorstep.
One of the world’s most beautiful Christmas markets
International rankings regularly put the Salzburg Christkindlmarkt in the Top 10. And indeed, against a backdrop of grand plazas and the cathedral, the atmosphere truly is one-of-a-kind. The smells of mulled wine, punch and hot baked potatoes hover above the lights of the market stands, while many a Christmas gift is bought here directly from the regional producer. Open from 19.11. until 26.12.
