    Salzburg Christmas Market in front of the Cathedral and the Residenz

    From 18 November 2021 to 1 January 2022 you are invited to enjoy a snack and a glass of mulled wine at the famous Advent market. Here you can experience the true atmosphere of Advent: angelic choir singing, traditional fanfares from the towers, child-friendly “Perchten” processions and contemplative Christmas readings.

    Advent market in the Fortress Hohensalzburg

    On every weekend in Advent, the Herrnhut stars bathe the landmark of the city of Salzburg in a sea of lights. Children’s workshops, trumpeters and Salzburg delicacies are the special highlights at Fortress Hohensalzburg, which neither young nor old should miss.
