Christmas Market & Advent Markets
Bells ring, the scent of roasted almonds...
and the mulled wine steams out of the cup - during the Advent season, the Salzburg Christmas Market turn the cathedral and Residenzplatz, located in the middle of the old town, into a Christmas oasis. The Christmas market has been a tradition for more than 500 years, making it one of the oldest and most successful Christmas markets worldwide. The stands, whose sales range extends from natural products, arts and crafts and textile handicrafts to Christmas accessories, glow at night.
Choirs sing, tower music, children's readings, gingerbread and a crib exhibition with a winter forest inviting you to visit the
advent markets in the city and surroundings have a special charm. The Hellbrunn Advent Magic, in the luminous splendor of Hellbrunn Palace, Salzburg Fortress Advent, Christmas Market on Mirabellplatz, Sternadvent with a winter market in the middle of the old town and Stiegl Beer Advent are places where wishes to the Christkind come true! The Advent market in the Fanziskischlössel on the Kapuzinerberg is an insider tip, and the Glanegg farmer's event and the St. Leonhard Christmas market take you outside the gates of Salzburg.
The Christmas season is so warm-hearted and glamorous!
