Advent in Salzburg
Winter Magic in the Baroque Old City
Everything is turning white and Advent is approaching: For many this is the most beautiful time of year. While some are busy waxing their skis and heading for the mountains, others are looking forward to a more peaceful, reflective experience. Here in Eugendorf, both opportunities are open to you: You are already getting close to the mountains, while Salzburg City – with its romantic Advent markets – is right at your doorstep.
One of the world's most beautiful Advent markets
The Salzburg Christmas Market is regular ranked amongst the world's Top Ten. And the atmosphere evoked there, on the broad squares which surround the cathedral, is absolutely unique. The fragrance of hot spiced wine, punch and piping-hot baked potatoes floats above the lights of the market stands, while many a Christmas gift – created by a local producer – was purchased right here as well. Open from 19 November until 26 December.
Other magical Advent markets in and around Salzburg
We highly recommend Hellbrunn Advent Magic at Hellbrunn Palace (from 19.11.-24.12.) as well as Waldklang from 20.11. to 27.12 at nearby Waldbad Anif (close to the Anif exit off the autobahn). In the city itself, you can ride or walk up to the fortress and experience Advent combined with an awe-inspiring castle atmosphere (from 27.11-20.12.)
Advent choral concerts look back on a long tradition in Salzburg. Every year, a variety of seasonal concerts add to the already rich Salzburg cultural program . The Grosses Festspielhaus, St. Andrew's Church, the University Great Hall and the Fortress are just some of the performance venues. Tickets can be ordered in advance. (Verlinken auf Kartenservice)
