Reflective, down to earth, delicious!
When the days start to get shorter and darkness sets over Lakes in the late afternoon, one of the most beautiful times of the year begins in the World Heritage town: the days before the Christmas. Then numerous windows are festively decorated, a gingerbread scent hangs in the air and the world-famous salt mining town dons its pre-Christmas dress. Then the whole region of the Salzkammergut shine in the lights and numerous stars illuminate the night. And when the market square with the life-sized crib and the festive Christmas tree gets dressed up - then it's time for Christmas!
Hallstatt in bright lights
If you have had enough of the same old offers at Christmas markets, when you can’t bear to hear "Last Christmas" anymore and want to experience something completely different, then the world-famous Hallstatt is the place to be - because only here there is a Christmas barbecue with chesnut beer, a scarily beautiful Krampus exhibition, wood and schnapps in an unusual combination, homemade “Holzknechtnockn” (a fried dumpling eaten sweet or savoury) and a homely atmosphere for a contemplative, down to earth and nature-related Advent.
At a glance
There is much to see, feel and discover. Below we have put together the most beautiful highlights. Be enchanted by our small but fine offers. See you in pre-Christmas. Merry Christmas!
