Advent and Christmas in Salzburg
The Advent and Christmas seasons in Grödig
Shhh! This is a quiet time of year! The Advent and Christmas seasons are particularly meaningful in the Salzburg region. Whether you are alone, as a couple, or with the family, a visit during this season offers you the chance to enjoy this year-end time by taking a stroll through the snow-covered countryside or by visiting the Christkindl Christmas markets. There are so many traditions to experience in Salzburg during the Advent and Christmas season, such as the Krampusläufe, or Krampus celebration. During this time of year people prepare themselves for the new year and look back on the old one. We gather together, spend time with one another and look forward to spending Christmas together.
Christmas – a time to reflect
Families with children will find the Advent and Christmas seasons in Salzburg to be an ideal time to take a harmonious vacation. Keeping active on the slopes in one of the local ski areas or visiting the Christmas markets is particularly moving. Even the grumpiest types will surely get into the Christmas spirit after taking a stroll through the Christmas market in St. Leonhard in Salzburg County. Throughout the village guests will find traditional Christmas pageants and concerts, as well as a workshop in Grödig where traditional crèches are built. Visiting Salzburg and the surrounding region during the Christmas season is certainly worth the effort, and Grödig at the Untersberg Mountain is the ideal spot to chase away the stress that comes with the holiday season.
