Advent in Salzburg City is an experience for young and old. From mid-November the old town is transformed into an oversized Advent calendar and a fairytale forest is created, decorated with conifers, red balls and fairy lights, which make the entire old town shine in a special shine. Advent in Salzburg is known for being particularly atmospheric at this time.
The baroque city of Salzburg is festively decorated, with many Advent concerts and the world-famous Salzburg Christmas market. The beginnings of the Christmas market in Salzburg go back to 1491. Today the Salzburg Christmas Market is one of the most beautiful Christmas markets in the world. Bar music echoes through the alleys, fairy lights glitter against the snow, the scent of mulled wine is in the air and flickering lanterns bathe Salzburg in nostalgic light: Christmas is just around the corner. Because the Christmas markets there are as diverse as Salzburg and the Salzkammergut. In front of the idyllic and fairytale backdrops of historic castles, picturesque squares, glittering lakes and snow-covered winter landscapes, you will get to know the Christ Child and his angels. But how beautiful the Mozart city is in Advent cannot only be experienced at the city's Christmas markets. Salzburg is so lavishly decorated at Christmas time that a simple stroll through the old town or a visit to the restaurant is enough to get you into the Christmas mood.
