Advent in Salzburg
Since the 15th century, people have prepared themselves for the Christchild's arrival on the squares around the cathedral. The Advent market in Salzburg is thus one of the oldest in all of Europe. While strolling through the traditional Christkindlmarkt, discover valuable handicrafts, delicious treats, Christmas tree decorations and much more. The mood is enhanced with the trumpeters on the Advent Saturdays, the performances of choirs and the Christchild's visit with his angels.
You can visit other atmospheric Advent markets in Salzburg in Hellbrunn, at the Hohensalzburg Fortress and at Mirabellplatz. Events such as the Salzburg Advent Singing in the Festival Hall and Advent concerts are also well-known and popular.
The backdrop of the lake and the lovely towns, the baroque Salzburg historic center, and the finest Christmas mood: the Advent markets are some of the most popular excursion destinations in the region at this time of year. Visit the idyllic Mondseeland, where the clocks tick a little slower. The Hotel Krone in the center of Mondsee will welcome you at the heart of it. Send us a non-binding request for your holiday!
