…the romantic Advent village!
Entering the idyllic Advent (Christmas) Market through one of the two huge Market gates, the visitor is led along a lane of lanterns to the Advent (Christmas) Market which is festively decorated with hundreds of fir trees, flaming torches and metre-high, romantically-glowing lanterns.
The anticipation of Christmas is tangible and celebrated with joy here, and fascinating customs, still practised today, are a big draw.
Watch over the shoulders of craftsmen at work on their ancient arts and crafts and buy genuine pieces of folk-art to take home with you. This “real” Christmas Market offers a rich selection of exquisite arts and crafts, regional specialities and wonderful Christmas tree decorations too.
At the Angel Post-office, children are helped to write down their Christmas wishes by angels and, using the angel-post, they can send their wishes in the right direction!
The unique Nativity-scene standing in the vicarage garden with its life-sized figurines carved in the local Salzkammergut style draws those of all ages to stand and stare in admiration.
Various cultural and traditional events complete the programme in the romantic village of St. Wolfgang all leaving you with unforgettable memories.
