10th - 11th December 2016: Advent Market in the Hand.Werk.Haus

The Hand.Werk.Haus is situated in the rear wing of the Neuwildenstein Stately Home, and is the perfect venue for those who wish to spend a few hours of personal reflection in Advent. On Saturday 10th December (from 10.00 –18.00) and Sunday 11th December 2016 (10.00 – 17.00), craftsmen and women from the Salzkammergut will be hosting a festive Christmas Market. Over 20 of our most talented artists and craftsmen proudly present their products both inside and in the courtyard at the Neuwildenstein stately home.

As you make your tour of the Hand.Werk.Haus you will be able to visit, on both floors, stalls with goods for sale by hat makers, clock makers, carpenters, tailors, dressmakers and goldsmiths. Hopefully you will find one or two gift ideas to take home with you. This year for the first time, a glass blower will be demonstrating his talents. Visiting craftsmen from Styria will be offering culinary oil, wine and other food specialities for sale or just to sample. There will be traditional folk music, a real life nativity scene as well as events for children. "S'Gschäft" is situated on the ground floor. Here you can purchase a wide variety of products ranging from sheep's wool blankets to hats, clocks and jewellery, and from cots for dolls to candles and honey ...

Also on sale in the stately home are mulled wine, grilled sausages, smoked fish, coffee and cakes, roast chestnuts and other delicious treats. A lovely way to end your day is to visit the Exhibition of Cribs by a group from Bad Goisern in the Old People's Home.
