Advent Markets in the National Park Region
Atmospheric Advent markets
The children take a spin on the historic carousel while their parents warm their hands with a cup of punch. And then look over the shoulder of the basket weaver at his centuries-old craftsmanship. That and much more is Advent in the Holiday Region National Park Hohe Tauern. We have put together some Advent highlights for you.
Salzburger mountain advent in the Großarltal
The Grossarltal is atmospheric and authentic in the run-up to Christmas. Highlights are the elaborately handcrafted nativity scene trail and the extensive family programme. Like hardly any other Advent market, the Salzburg Mountain Advent in the Grossarl Valley emphasises authenticity and tradition.
On regional products and a balanced mix of crafts and food. Singers and musicians perform old Christmas carols to the accompaniment of the steady crackling of the fire, which is only interrupted now and then by the ringing of bells from passing horse-drawn carriages.
The Advent market is open on all 4 Advent weekends.
Mittersill National Park Advent Market
Enjoy the unique flair of the pre-Christmas season at the Mittersill National Park Advent Market: local choirs and brass ensembles spread a feeling of Christmas with their sounds and stallholders offer handmade gift ideas of all kinds.
In addition, there are regional culinary delicacies that can be tasted to your heart's content. A special feature is the living craft workshop, where craftsmen and artists from the region provide an insight into their traditional work and show how the various products take shape in their hands.
The Mittersill National Park Advent Market is open from 17.11. to 17.12. 2023 from 16.00 on Friday and from 14.00 on Saturday and Sunday.
Real Advent romance in the Wildkogel-Arena
Atmosphere at the Neukirchner Advent
The Neukirchner Advent (16.-18.12.22) is dedicated to Pinzgau traditions and handicrafts. At the splendidly decorated stalls you can buy regional and home-made goods, from Advent flower arrangements to wooden toys and ceramics. Don't miss the Christmas readings and a visit to the donkeys and goats in the small petting zoo. A memorable experience in the pre-Christmas period in Neukirchen is a horse-drawn carriage ride with strong Norikers as the team.
Along with the Advent market, the artificial ice rink on Neukirchen's market square opens its gleaming parquet. Until mid-March, you can pirouette again and meet up for a social curling session with punch and mulled wine.
