Advent in Mondsee and Salzburg
The Advent markets in the Salzkammergut are among the most beautiful in Austria
Salzburg and the Salzkammergut can safely be designated the important centres of Advent in Austria. Furthermore, the Advent markets against the Salzburg historic centre backdrop, around Lake Wolfgang and the Advent Singing in Salzburg are famous. Immerse yourself in the magic that creates a special light in the area already worth visiting and puts you in the mood for Christmas.
Advent in Mondsee
In the weeks leading up to Christmas, things are cosy on the square in front of the basilica and in the Gothic cloister: at the stalls, local businesses and clubs invite you for social chats, to have a look and to enjoy specialities.
Advent at Lake Wolfgang
With the romantic Advent markets in St. Gilgen, St. Wolfgang and Strobl, a Christmassy ambience is cast over one of the most beautiful Salzkammergut lakes. From far off, you can see the peace light lanterns on the lake by St. Wolfgang. It is especially lovely to experience the Advent as a passenger on the Lake Wolfgang ship, which travels from place to place during Advent.
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 centre 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 centre of Mondsee will welcome you at the heart of it. Send us a non-binding request for your holiday!
