Advent markets in Graz

Ice Ice Baby

    Christkindlmarkt am Hauptplatz

    A particular nice place to drink punch is in front of the Graz City Hall, whose façade is transformed into a huge Advent calendar during the nights from 22 November to 24 December 2019. And the world’s largest ice crib in the courtyard of the Landhaus is just a few metres away.

    „Aufsteirern“- Christmas market on the Schlossberg

    On the Advent weekends you can celebrate over the rooftops of Graz. With culinary highlights, arts and crafts from Styria, traditional brass music, torchlit hikes and the Styrian Christkind.

  3. 3

    Christmas market on Tummelplatz

    From 22 November to 24 December 2019 there is lots of colourful diversity on the Tummelplatz. Here you can see jewellery and wooden art from distant countries, as well as homemade glass art and ceramics. And if you want to feel like one of the Three Kings, you can even buy incense and myrrh yourself.

Imperial cuisine

From imperial rolls to imperial pancakes

There are many anecdotes about the famous Austrian “Kaiserschmarren”, a traditional pancake dish. One of them goes as follows: in 1854 the Viennese court pâtissier created a new dish for the wedding of Emperor Franz Joseph I and Elisabeth of Bavaria. But Elisabeth - always thinking about her slim figure - spurned this sweet dish. The Emperor jokingly took Sisi’s plate and said with a smile: "Well then give me the “Schmarren” which our Leopold has created”. The Emperor (the “Kaiser”) enjoyed the taste of this sweet dish so much that it was known ever after as “Kaiserschmarren”.
